Design Anatomy Exhibition
Attempt to “dissect” familiar products from a design
In our everyday lives we are surrounded by countless products. These mass-produced objects blend in almost seamlessly with our lifestyles to the point that we rarely take a careful look at them — they are just ordinary things. However, in fact, a great deal of thought has gone into them at every stage of their production, with ingenious solutions applied to nearly every element: the materials used to make them, their flavor, packaging, etc. “Design Anatomy” aims to examine those design elements in detail.
In its original sense, “anatomy” is the study of the structure of living organisms, their parts, the relationships among the parts, and the order inherent within them, most commonly using dissection as a means of analyzing these elements in detail. Here, however, the exhibition instead dissect design, analyzing the graphic elements such as the layout and printing of the logos and packages of the products, and performing detailed analysis and observations of the products’ inner workings.
The exhibition turn its attention anew to five products by Meiji Co., Ltd. Among the participating young designers and artists active in a wide range of fields whom has invited, and the exhibition aim to make that can be enjoyed by everyone from children to adults alike.
