The programme ranges from children’s workshops to activities for school classes to enjoyable recreational workshops for groups.

Akari Light Sculptures (1951)

Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan, the paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. The lamps are created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame.

Vegetal could not have existed without the technical sophistication of modern software, in the same way that it could not have moved on from the finesse intrinsic to the stages of design drawing by hand. It is the close association of these two processes that has been so special. The complexity of its form, which must be uniform as a tree or a flower would be, has continuously forced Ronan & Erwan to rethink the whole thing in respect of each detail: one might say, this chair has been redesigned a thousand times.
