‘KONOHA’ is a material sample made to convey beautiful raw material coloring technology by adding polarized pearls and lamé to polycarbonate, which is a commonly known highly durable
transparent resin. This is not a general color sample but a material sample showing the height of technology. Show the material color with a polyhedron with curved surfaces, follow the
minute mold shape with leaf wrinkles, and change the shape of the edges to express the color gradation. In the future, this material has the potential to reduce CO2 and VOCs by eliminating
the painting process at various manufacturing sites, and was designed to convey the value of this material to more people. Kaori Akiyama of STUDIO BYCOLOR designed the leaves from which the postcards were derived as motifs. We hope you will feel through this exhibition that material development will be important for future design. Won German Design Award 2020,DFA Asian Design Award and GOOD DESIGN AWARD.
