Faucet, Wrist Watch, Stationery
and Exterior Light
This exhibition displays Kurokawa's designs in four categories: faucet, wrist watches, lighting and stationery. Kurokawa, who works as product designers as well as an architect, believes things possess the same quality as structures in so far as they comprise a kind of space of their own. For example, through an adjustment of scale, even small things can be infused with architectural concepts. The smaller items on display such as a faucet or stationery exist in space. In this way, Kurokawa uses casual, daily objects in order to reawaken us to the essential importance of product design.
