Daily life with handicrafts and design. Exhibition in Paris

From May to June 2014, the event  Daily life with handicrafts and design, dedicated to the design and craft of Japan, was held in Paris.
The exhibition, housed at the Maison de la Culture du Japon, was designed by the Paris-based practice Archiee, formed by Yusuke Kinoshita, Daisuke Sekine and Kunihiko Takanoe. The designers displayed the 233 exhibited works, conceived by various artists, by placing them in six domestic sets (staircase, study, balcony, living room, dining room and dressing space) identified by their iconic elements: chairs, tables, closets, windows and so on.

Since the exhibition hall was very large and neutral, the purpose of Archiee was to create a series of environments summoning up the domestic spaces we all experience every day, as well as capable to communicate to the visitors the proper sense of each object.

Furthermore, each set was identified by a specific colour, part of a precise chromatic alphabet, used to make the environments more abstract as well as to create an poetic narration.
