Discipline: Interior Architecture

The booth is named ARAKAWA GRIP MUSEUM and was shown at JAPAN SHOP 2019. It showcases Arakawa & Co., Ltd's iconic invention from 1975, the ARAKAWA GRIP, a wire cable fastener that adjusts along the cable with one push lock and no screws. The booth also presents Arakawa's history, previous booth designs, and awards as well as the company's future projects and collaborations with designers and architects. The booth is constructed with wires, several cords twisted together into a spiral, converging in the middle to make a crisscrossed pattern. The lighting of the wires creates a sophisticated, beautiful pattern.
