From March 30th to June 10th, 2018, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents Freeing Architecture, the first major solo exhibition devoted to the work of Junya Ishigami.
An important and singular figure of Japan’s young architecture scene, Ishigami—winner of the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2010—is the creator of a conceptual and poetic body of work in which the landscape occupies an important place.
For the exhibition Freeing Architecture, conceived specifically for the Fondation Cartier, Ishigami reveals twenty of his architectural projects in Asia and in Europe. These projects will be presented through a series of large-scale models, accompanied by images and drawings, which document their different stages of conception and construction.
Living Divani participates to this exhibition with its Family Chair collection designed by Ishigami. These pieces are light, harmonious and easy to use. Using the designer words:
“Chairs that live in harmony, like a family. Whilst they are all similar, each chair has a slightly different shape, and its own personality. There is a wide chair, a tall chair, a short chair, a normal chair and a stool. It’s fun to choose which chair to sit on, depending on the day’s mood. It’s also fun to decide which is your favorite chair. Like a family sitting around a table, so the chairs are arranged around the table.”
