Hear eminent Japanese designer of fashion, textiles and objects Akira Minagawa give insight into his label Minä Perhonen, life philosophy and inspirations. This special keynote at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences is part of the SCCI Fashion Hub 2018.
Minagawa-san discusses his cross medium methodology which ranges from textile and industrial design to his celebrated interior designs evident in the sleek Minä Perhonen stores of Daikanyama. In this keynote, he explores the design-led ethos of these stores, for which he creates everything from tableware to the wooden dome that crowns his Tokyo flagship.
With a nod to his experience as collaborator of the world famous Alvar Aalto studio in Finland, Minagawa-san traces the inspiration and evolution of his own iconic design language through the close ties between Japanese and Scandinavian minimalism in contemporary design.
This event is part of the SCCI Fashion Hub, and is co-presented by MAAS.
