IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE : CONCEPT
Using fabric made from improved recycled polyester fiber and forms developed by applying three-dimensional mathematical principles, the new 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE clothes were born in autumn 2010. In the development process of the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE project, attempts to explore design from a broader viewpoint - not just limited to clothing - evolved into the IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lighting products. The production of the lighting products involved not only the latest technology, but also the work by human hands. And, at the base of the products' concept is the traditional Japanese esthetics about the relationship between light and shadow (in-ei). The three-dimensional form concept developed by 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE was used in creating the lampshades, and the original material with excellent shape retention and light transmission qualities was developed.
