Nicola and Yayoi

Finally I had a chance to enter GSIX, new comercial complex in Ginza. ( related page is here )

The interior of the building is designed by Gwenael Nicolas ( related page is here ) who is a Tokyo based French designer. He created golden lattice panels which remind us Koushido of Japanese traditional architecture, and covered the open space in the way rising up to the right which has a good meaning for Asian.


Baloons created by Yayoi Kusama, 88 year old female artist, are floating in the space as a occasional installation. The geometric Asa-no-ha pattern ( related page is here ) on the Washi covered glass ceiling is also by Nicola. Very unique collaboration for the opening memorial.


Baloons have a shape of pumpkin with red dots pattern Yayoi always uses for her works. ( related page is here )


And other details of the interior are also sharing the same concept, rising up to the right.


Even the restrooms.
