Kazuo Kawasaki

Platon's Orgel

'94 Jun.25-Jul.25

The entire floor has become an object in the display. The precision arrangement of the space, bathed in a brilliant white light, far exceeds the level of most display designs. Kawasaki presents models of music boxes he has created to pay tribute to twelve philosophers and artists of his choice, placed upon twelve columns. Clock have been imbedded in the floor to display the time elapsed between the birth and death of each of twelve figures. The exhibition exudes a strong sense of Kawasaki's rejection of a system of design geared for mass production and mass consumption, along with his commitment to the pursuit of pure industrial design.
