“Japanese architects ryuji nakamura & associates have shared with us images of ‘bang’,
an exhibition space for the italian fashion brand ‘CoSTUME NATIONAL‘ at the CNAC LAB
in Tokyo, Japan. enclosed within a simple room, the design consists of a porous wall of
hung ribbons that create a synthetic fog between the viewer and the mannequins.
measuring 18mm wide, the thin strips of polyester ribbons create a dynamic curtain that seemingly changes its opacity depending on how far one is away from it. the resulting effect is a fuzzy aperture that focuses on one mannequin at a time, despite the fact that the clothes are lined up side to side. at once simple and airy, the design allows for an interactive space that ‘breathes’ in and out of transparency according to each point in the room.
