From March 5 (Thu), the world ISSEY MIYAKE, which is representing this season, will be conveyed to the fullest extent with the installation of “JUNGLE PHONE.”
The exhibit "JUNGLE PHONE"* was created by Mr. Dai Fujiwara, Creative Director of ISSEY MIYAKE, and Mr. Keiji Koga, inventor of the "flower arrangement speaker," based on the concept of "device to telecommunicate with the jungle." It was held for the opening event of ISSEY MIYAKE’s flagship shop in Paris last October and became a hot topic. You can hear the leaves serving as speakers actually transmitting sounds, and experience the unique plan wherein the entire exhibition plays the same music. This project is “installation art.” Please immerse yourself in our installation art that is adding some glamour to this season’s ISSEY MIYAKE collection, which is expressing the real colors sampled from jungles in South America.
*1: Flower arrangement speaker (patented in 2002, No. 3353008)
This speaker was invented by Mr. Koga, an engineer at an aviation company. It is a device which makes plants resonate sounds by inserting the end of the plant into the acoustic generator that is connected to the audio source.
