The experience takes place during the London Design Festival and celebrates the unique nature of the triangular-shape-adorned bags now synonymous with the Japanese sub-brand, which were introduced in 2010. It’s a display of vibrant color palettes and iconic patterns that adorn a myriad of unique bags, which will sit alongside a kaleidoscopic presentation of over 100 bags hat create a rainbow-like effect under the vision of BAO BAO ISSEY MIYAKE.
“BAOBAOVOICE” allows visitors to engage with the bags like they would a musical instrument, incorporating touch, sound and sight into the exhibition. The experience encourages you to touch the structures, and will be supported by a state-of-the-art sound system that synchronizes the bag’s movement to the sounds. These sounds will correspond with a visual which will be displayed on a large wall, making for diverse, dynamic visual and sonic textures.
The “BAOBAOVOICE” exhibition will also feature a pop-up shop that will sell bags from the Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Take a look at what to expect from the exhibition in the gallery above, and experience it for yourself from September 17 — 23.
In other art news, KAWS has announced that he will be coming to London soon.
