This Week from Tokyo
by Jean / October 17, 2007

Keiji Ashizawa shares a few photos of a new prototype, the Gravity Light, with very thin sheets that curve due to gravity.

Kurage Light
+ Jo Nagasaka presents his Kurage light, made up of optical fibers that enable you to adjust the brightness by changing the size of the circles. It's currently on show at the Happa gallery in Nakameguro (until October 27).

Ceramic Remote
+ A ceramic remote control? The idea behind the Yuta Watanabe design is that you'll be more careful with something that's fragile, meaning less chance of losing it. Via Yanko Design.

+'s Eizo Okada is curating an exhibition, "Deroll," at Ars Gallery in Harajuku during Tokyo Design Week (October 31 to November 4) in which he asked five designers to create boxes. JS
