Unusual Interior Design Akio Hirata’s Exhibition of Hats by Nendo – design ideas and pictures on Interior Design and Decoration Ideas

 

 

The graphic and exhibition design for the first major Japanese designed by Nendo retrospective of internationally-known milliner Hirata Akio’s seventy years of work. The mass-produced non-woven fabric hats we created for the space are the antithesis of Hirata’s carefully handmade hats, and bring them into sharp relief through dramatic contrast. For the exhibition space, wanted to make Hirata’s hats stand out. Hirata oversaw the shape of these hats, which float and stream through the exhibition like ghosts or shells of the real hats exhibited. Some are exhibition stands; others become walls, ceilings and diffusers to scatter light through the space. Flooded with roughly 4000 of these ‘ghost hats’ as though shrouded in a cloud, the exhibition space softly invites visitors inside.
