Concept

DIESEL DENIM GALLERY AOYAMA will be presenting a store installation “Nature Factory” by Makoto Tanijiri.

Concept
Denim as recognized work clothes formerly had, at times, shown different expressions as fashion items to the people. Equally, a group of plumbing, usually unnoticed, shows completely different expressions with a given name “NATURE FACTORY”. The complex plumbing, trailing by the wall in all directions will cover all over the space. It is like a tree grown over a long time. An atmosphere like a natural arbor is created in the space covered with artificial plumbing.
New attractive scenery is presented with plumbing and fashion-items to show such primarily functional things actually are more diverse and also have higher value.
