Nobolu Hanger stand by Shinn Asano

Home > Winners > #27977


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Nobolu

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hanger stand

INSPIRATION:
The Sen furniture series, including the Nobolu hanger stand, was inspired by the unique aspects of traditional Japanese craft, patterns, hieroglyphs and nuances. It also has been created with lines that minimize excess to express both form and functionality in a range of applications because I am a designer with background in graphic design and would create furniture just like a simple perspective drawing on paper.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Shinn Asano with background in graphic design releases 6 piece collection of steel furniture called Sen, which turns 2D lines into 3D forms. The Sen has been created with lines that minimize excess to express both form and functionality in a range of applications, inspired by the unique aspects of traditional Japanese craft, patterns, and others. Nobolu hanger stand is inspired by the shapes of Japanese hieroglyphs. The bottom is grass, the middle is the sun, and the top is a tree, meaning that the sun is rising.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is the hanger stand and also the sculptural piece because the lines appear as abstract 3D form and emphasis placed more on expressivity compared to a conventional furniture. I prefer to use as hanger stand and also to enjoy viewing the piece as a sculpture. You can hang coat, jacket and hat on the top part, and hang also stole, muffler, scarf and ties into the middle part.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2012 in Japan, and was exhibited in Tokyo Designers Week in September to November 2012.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The major role of graphic design is to communicate something to people, and product design is to be used by people. Also, graphic is dealt in a limited plane, in an imaginary or unreal world. On the other hand, product is a solid object in a real world. While such differences cross over with one another, respective results are achieved; I feel the challenge and the fun in such design process. I have given Nobolu Hanger Stand a functional role of product, as well as a role of planar composition and communication of graphic.
