Teikuhiko – A Talk by Kenya Hara
The theme of this talk will centre around Kenya Hara’s representations of Japan, titled ‘teikuhiko’ – a low altitude, high resolution tour.
This latest project focusses on sharing destinations or buildings in Japan which reflect Hara’s own sensibilities. The hidden hot springs, mountain ranges and rural retreats selected by the world-renowned designer allow a deeper exploration of the core of Japan’s appeal and showcase the best it offers in dramatic landscapes, purity of scenery and design.
This talk has been programmed in conjunction with Japan House London. Located just a short walk from the Design Museum on Kensington High Street, Japan House is the new cultural centre offering visitors an authentic encounter with Japan. It offers a regularly changing line up of free exhibitions presenting the very best of Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation, and technology, as well as workshops and events. Part of a global initiative led by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there are two other Japan Houses in Los Angeles and São Paulo.
This talk is part of London Design Festival 2019.
Please note the event is now fully booked.
