Do you remember Clammbon?-Art・Life・Design-

Do you remember Clammbon?" is the name of a series of exhibitions at Laboratory 9. The mysterious creature called "Clammbon," which appears in Kenji Miyazawa's widely known story "Yamanashi," has not been revealed, and it prompts our imagination in various ways. The name "Clammbon" was chosen because of the "fascination that art and design have to provoke awareness of something invisible" and the existence of "Clammbon".


Following the Spring 2023 exhibition, a new exhibition will be held from November 18 (Sat.), 2023 at the BAG-Brillia Art Gallery- BAG-Brillia Art Gallery.

 at BAG-Brillia Art Gallery

The exhibition "Do you remember Clammbon? Art, Life, Design" will be held at BAG-Brillia Art Gallery- starting Saturday, November 18.

Tokyo Biennale 2023 "Jewelry and the City Learning

We are participating in "Jewelry and the City Learning", one of the projects of Tokyo Biennale 2023, which was planned by Kazuko Koike as creative director.

This is a project to rediscover and re-create "jewelry," the most familiar creation to people. Participants gathered from the public are invited to visit Okachimachi, a town specializing in jewelry where craftsmen also gather to create their own accessories by making use of items inherited from their families. The students of the Department of Design of the University of the Arts will design the accessories based on the ideas of the participants, and the craftsmen of Okachimachi will produce them.

International Exchange Building, Tokyo University of the Arts
Continuously Changing Public Art
Design Department Project



Art Transcends Walls

In the winter of 2022, the International Exchange Building of Tokyo University of the Arts was completed under the design supervision of Kengo Kuma & Associates, Inc.


I completed this project with my laboratory students as a design department project for the International Exchange Building "Changing Public Art".

The two-dimensional code on the exterior wall allows students, alumni, and laboratories of Tokyo University of the Arts to access the website and submit video works, which will then be shown inside the International Exchange Building.



We are not accepting submissions until then, but we are currently introducing the works of students, laboratories, and graduates of the Department of Design. We thought that getting to know each other on campus, where there are few opportunities for exchange, would be the first step in promoting exchange.

This project is being undertaken in conjunction with the Japan Football Association.

A sensory room is a room where children with developmental disabilities or sensory sensitivity and their families can enjoy sports games or movies together in peace, with soundproofing and low-lighting.

Hashimoto Lab was in charge of one of the rooms at the Emperor's Cup final in 2021, and we believe that the families who came to the final were able to fully enjoy themselves. We hope that the families who came to the final enjoyed the event.
