Issey Miyake - Sticks'

French-born, Tokyo-based designer and architect emmanulle moureaux (she works with colour, a lot) has created 'Sticks', an in-store colour installation for issey miyake.

consisting of 411 white and coloured sticks of different lengths.


Their assembled form connects and provides circulation to the store space and a new appearance to the long window front.

inspired by 'mikado', a european children's game, the sticks seem to be positioned randomly, creating tension and chance balances.

There is kinetic movement and stasis at the same time. A comforting still.

The interplay of colour elements is much more difficult to compose, than meets the eye.

Its great to see the pre-assembly. Like colour candy sticks.
