Text description provided by the architects. An installation in the shop space of DIESEL DENIM GALLERY AOYAMA in Tokyo. The characteristic of the material used for the installation, which is aluminum, is that it is very thin and easily bent by hands, yet harder than cloth or paper. Therefore it possesses both soft and hard qualities.

By winding and sometimes extending this single, long strip of aluminum from the entrance to the back-end of the room, it creates a beautiful waving form, changing its function and features as the material strength changes. This flexible quality of the material represents a loose intertwining of the softness of clothes and hardness of architecture.
