1. Models and Lighting for the Japan National Stadium
The exhibition includes a special display of lampshades used in the athlete interview zone, not accessible to the general public, at Japan National Stadium, which Kuma participated in designing. For his design of these fixtures, Kuma envisioned the quintessentially Japanese light of paper lanterns and sunlight through bamboo blinds. Also on view will be approximately 40 items strictly selected from among the huge number of models produced as studies for various parts of Japan National Stadium, including interior furnishings, the building’s louvers and the pedestrian deck. These will be unveiled at an exhibition for the first time.
