NTT Urban Development - Symbol Mark Design

13 October 2016

Tokujin Yoshioka designed the new symbol mark for NTT Urban Development.

This newly designed symbol mark is not like symbols in the past that have been created from a two-dimensional designing, but a three-dimensional design that gives a futuristic taste brought forth by a stereoscopic form having a sense of “space”.

This symbol expresses pureness and shining crystal as a motif to symbolize the
3 keywords of "future, innovation and integrity", which represent NTT Urban Development's corporate slogan. The color of blue, which has a sense of transparency and represent crystal, depicts the deep tones of the natural sky and sea. Beyond the creation of a bright, futuristic architecture and spaces, this symbol signifies the thoughts of giving happiness and joy to many people.

"Water Block" exhibited at the Golden Pavillion Temple - Kinkaku-ji in Kyoto

22 May 2016

The new piece - the golden-brass “Water Block” was exhibited at the Golden Pavillion Temple - Kinkaku-ji, in Kyoto.

The original "Water Block” made of glass forms the shape of solid water, and it is the piece that expresses the beauty of chance born at the moment when the glass is solidified and the beautiful ripples of water surface. It is permanently exhibited at the Impressionist gallery at Musée d’Orsay in Paris together with masterpieces of Mannet, Degas, Monet, Cézanne and Renoir.

For this new piece, the original form of the glass bench was newly made of brass, and it was created by the exquisite casting technique of traditional Buddha statue making in Japan which has been inherited over years.In this process of casting, brass melted in a 1100℃ furnace was poured into a sand mold, and it was thoroughly polished by experienced craftsmen to create the bench to shimmer in gold.

Kinkaku-ji, officially named Rokuon-ji is located in Kyoto, which was formerly the imperial capital of Japan in 794. It was built as a symbol of Kitayama culture by Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, the 3rd general of Ashikaga shogunate during Muromachi period of Japan, in 1397. The spaces of 2nd and 3rd floors of this Zen temple building are covered with gold foils, and the building is designated as one of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto, which are World Heritage Sites.

It was the first art exhibition held there privately, and it was not open to the public due to the Important Cultural Property.

*The exhibition at the Golden Pavillion - Kinkaku-ji has ended already.
