About Exhibition

A product designer the world believes in - NaotoFukasawa.
A leading authority in advertising photography; a man who captures air on film - Tamotsu Fujii.

Product designer Naoto Fukasawa unfailingly designs shapes to meet people's expectations. His unique efforts to determine the "outline of things" from people's unconscious are gathering attention worldwide. Advertising photography expert Tamotsu Fujii superbly depicts outlines blending into light and air.
The "outline of design", something obvious yet invisible, emerges through the efforts of these two men. This exhibition, including 100 products designed by Naoto Fukasawa and some 70 photographs taken by Tamotsu Fujii over 4 years, is something never attempted before - an exhibition revealing what everyone has sought... the "outline of design".
