Concept

DIESEL DENIM GALLERY AOYAMA presents a store installtion “ROLLS” by Chikara Ohno / sinato.

Concept by the architect:
The characteristic of aluminum, the material used for this installation, is its softness and thinness, yet harder than cloth or paper. Its possessesion of both soft and hard qualities makes it easy to be bent by hands. By winding and sometimes extending this single long strip of aluminum from the entrance to the back-end of the store, it creates a beautiful waving form, changing its function and features as the material strength changes. This flexible quality of the material represents a gentle connection between the softness of clothes and hardness of architecture.
