"A piece of cloth" is the concept fundamental to the creative work of ISSEY MIYAKE INC. The OBI and KONBU presented at this exhibition too drew inspiration from this concept.
OBI is a bag that folds flat but turns three-dimensional when lifted up. KONBU is a bag smooth but firm enough to hold its shape. Both are developed by MIYAKE DESIGN STUDIO (MDS) with creative use of materials.
As part of MDS' latest work, the OBI and KONBU bags express the studio's curiosity about design and its creative process rooted in the everyday life.

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 3 is a presentation space dedicated to design, which develops collaborative programs with domestic and overseas corporations, which constitute one of the major bases of making things, as well as educational, research and cultural institutions. Through programs that inform the very present of design, here, we can think about our everyday life and future with a greater number of people, and make various proposals.
Through networks that continue to expand from the Gallery 3 as the hub, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will explore a multifaceted “design point of view” in future.
