Emergence of form｜ Installation
AGC (AGC Inc.; head office: Tokyo; President & CEO: Takuya Shimamura) will be unveiling its installation entitled the “Emergence of Form” at “Milan Design Week 2019,” which will be held in Milan, Italy from April 9 to April 14. This time, AGC has chosen creative partner Keita Suzuki, a product designer who has engaged in design for a wide array of products ranging from soy sauce bottles and smartphones to railway vehicles.
Glass and ceramics—By taking these 2 differing materials, we have created a space that portrays the ever-fluctuating beauty of nature.
Utilizing its proprietary, cutting-edge technologies for three-dimensional curved surface forming for glass materials and ceramics 3D printing, AGC has created an installation that captures a moment in time of complex natural phenomena, which continues to change with each passing moment. Essentially speaking, while natural scenery never comes to a halt in real life, by freezing this moment in time, we have created a scene that conjures up a “landscape of the heart” that should be familiar to anyone. Utilizing these sophisticated materials and based on such advanced technologies, we have taken a moment out of the ever-flowing movement found in nature and captured the essence of nature itself.
By creating an emerging form of “nature” through the use of man-made objects, we hope that we can provide attendees with an experience that demonstrates the new possibilities being explored by AGC.
