REDESIGNING THE COURSE OF CANCER

I am very honor to be part of Luminaire’s innovative use of design to raise awareness and funds for cancer research, the groundbreaking Love philanthropic series of charity auctions returns for its fourth edition this fall with GlasLove.
Glass, characterized by the duality of its strong yet fragile nature, is a poetically fitting medium that reflects the spirit of those battling the disease. For this special event, highly collectible, one-off, limited-edition, or prototype works created in glass were created by distinguished international designers and design manufacturers, including Nendo, Marcel Wanders, Tadao Ando, Naoto Fukasawa, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Todd Bracher, Sebastian Herkner, Nao Tamura, Omer Arbel, Tord Boontje, Glas Italia, Lasvit, Arcade, Bocci, Swarovski, and Venini, among others. -My best regards to dearest Nargis and Nasir Kassamali, and special thanks to WonderGlass to donate the glass pieces.

Online Auction | September 19 – October 11, 2016

なんとも、いろいろな事が切っ掛けでトラベル ドキュメンタリーに出させて頂きました。旅したのはDiorというメゾンが生まれたパリ、そして創設者であるムッシュ ディオールの生まれ故郷であるノルマンディ地方のグランヴィル。
テレビに出る事が素人で、その上ファッションの知識も全くなく不安でしたが、それが良いと言って下さった関係者の方々に助けられ私の中には想像もしてなかった感動がありました。デザイナーと言う物づくりの視点からChristian Diorブランドの拘りや、輝かしい世界の裏にある柔らかい純粋な思い、みたいのを感じて貰えると良いのですが。。

Today Octover 26th (Sun)22:00〜22:55 BS Fuji on Air!

Thank you very much for who came to the installations during Milan Salone.
It’s always very nice to see the reaction of audience.
Another good experience, and always a lot to learn…

For those who couldn’t come to the show, here are videos from WonderGlass installation and some scenes from Lexus installation…
