An exhibition of colors by the decorative tape brand HARU stuck-on design;
The number of visitors reached 50,000, spreading color throughout the city.
We were in charge of the art direction and space design for the exhibition, Bring Color into Your Life as a way of introducing Haru Stuck-On Design;. The exhibition was held during Milan Design Week. Inspired by the oldest art form in the world, cave murals, we exhibited a site-specific installation of color, words, light, and sound, based on the theme “imagination inspired by color.” It took place at Ventura Centrale, a space under the elevated railway tracks of Milan's Central Station. By decorating the aged walls and humid space with Haru Stuck-On Design;, we tried to create an expression that appealed to people's senses and sensitivity. At the venue, artwork was created in accordance with what great artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Klee, and Bruno Munari said about color. The entire space, including the floor, walls, and ceiling, were used to install two- and three-dimensional forms. The programmed light and sound that filled the venue triggered an expansion of color imagination, surprising and inspiring the visitors. Sample bars were also set up at the venue where visitors could experience the Haru Stuck-On Design; tape. Using tape in different colors and sizes, visitors enjoyed customizing their clothes and bags, becoming a hot topic in Milan Design Week.
