Manifesto research – Armchair

 

“Simplicity and surprise, materiality and immateriality from object to space.”Armchair=Table/Sessel=Tisch/fauteuil=table,1998IMG_3522Armchair=Table/Sessel=Tisch/fauteuil=table, designed by Shin and Tomoko Azumi

“In the future we hope that design will help us achieve a ‘better life’ rather than just ‘better sales’. Between the 80’s and early 90’s, design became a tool for commercial marketing. Than was not altogether a bad thing, but now we think it should be used to create a desirable environment and that greater emphasis should be placed on ‘individuality’ in the future. People will have more choice as quick communication and fast transpiration make a wider range of designs from across the world accessible to them. In that situation, personal attachment will become a more important factor in design. Finally, for us, the future of design is an extended horizon of where we are and why we feel at the moment. It is not an entity in itself.” Shin+Tomoko Azumi.

In my opinion, a lot of Japanese designers did very well on sustainable design, it decided by their own countries situation, the size of the country and limit of energy resource. Maybe we can found and learn more good cases from Japanese design and designers.
