Production is a creative unit that received attention in Milan Design Week 【SPREAD Comment】 “Man is fascinated by the contrast behind the colors.” The inspiration for this work comes from the memories of the land and the beauty of the colors and the horizon. Looking at the history and landscape design of Tokyo Midtown’s lands, the spread of color scenes that SPREAD has focused on will combine to reveal the colored valleys along the waterscape line. The fluttering of the wind, the overlap of bright colors is a memory of the activity of the place and people for some time. A variety of bumps and bumps will be reminiscent of waves and waters. What exists in the scenery we usually admire vaguely? I would like you to experience beauty from sight as you go along this path with your family, your pets, yourself and so on. I would like you to enjoy the dialogue with this place by soaking in the color horizon that greatly encloses the human body. 【Profile】 SPREAD (spread) Creative unit by Haruna Yamada and Hirokazu Kobayashi. Environment, living thing, thing, time, history, color, characters, all memories are taken into consideration and “SPREAD = spread” creative. While deeply involved in the project, he designs and directs graphics, products, exhibitions, etc. with the features of “color and concept”. I always try to make social proposals. “Open space of design” Designed by product designer Naoto Fukasawa and interior designer Hisae Igarashi, the playground equipment that has won the Good Design Award has appeared.
