The 152nd Exhibition Furoshiki Graphics by 18 Designers from around the World January 6(Wed.) - 30(Sat.),1999

GGG's "Furoshiki" began in 1992 with unique works by 18 representative Japanese graphic designers. As the artists who how furoshiki are used and seen, the furoshiki were also marketable products. 18 international designers tried their hand at furoshiki this time. As designs, wonderful "graphics on a square cloth" were produced. That the composer, stockhausen, once came to Japan and said, "I feel satisfied with the furoshiki and chopsticks." That was sympathizing with the Eastern concept of the shape or use of something depending on its contents rather than fixed rules. Chopsticks that can be used for anything aside, furoshiki whose shape is determined by its contents is design itself. It's a package enveloping the client's theme and intentions. Yes, design is a furoshiki.
