Emilio Ambasz Exhibition / エミリオ・アンバース展

Tokyo, Japan / 東京
1985, 1993

La Jolla, USA / ラ・ホーヤ, アメリカ

This design is for a traveling exhibition of work by architect Emilio Ambasz that originated in Tokyo. Examples of his architecture and industrial and graphic designs were partitioned off by semi-translucent screens designed to suit any kind of gallery height and layout, reduce freight volume, and be assembled easily. Display panels were made of square paper tube frames and honeycombed screens. The frames are hinged to be folded flat, and the legs of the model stands are made of four types of paper tubes, each of different diameter making it possible for one leg to fit inside another, minimizing their volume in transit.
