Hear eminent Japanese designer of fashion, textiles and objects Akira Minagawa give insight to his label Minä Perhonen, his life philosophy and inspirations in a special keynote co-presented by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
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.
