Artist Emmanuelle Moureaux has filled an exhibition hall with 100 shades of colors to create an ethereal, airy feel in the large space. This stunning display was created for the presentation of the Wood Furniture Japan Award 2016 in Tokyo. Small branches dangle from the ceiling, dazzling us as a multitude of hues intertwine and form waves of color around tables and chairs.
The idea for Moureaux’s installation came from the Japanese concept of bunshi, which means to divide or spread out into branches. Here, 20,000 pieces of the stylized twigs have been organized into harmonious, three dimensional grids. Together, they mimic the experience of being in a forest and wandering among the tall trees.
