HAPPENINGText: Naoko Wowsugi

Hisami Omori, a curator of SCVF, offered a big box only the frame to six designers Hideyuki Tanaka, Seiichi Hishikawa, Hideki Inaba, so+ba, Samira Boon and Masao Kurosumi to create new forms of communication and design in the Communication Design Exhibit.


One of the designers, Samira Boon, makes two dimensional into three dimensional works like a card case and Sandals with simple technique such as cutting and folding. Her works give us a flexible idea. She believes her design produce communications between user and product.


This brilliant festival is still second time to happen. There may have been few participants. Though Hisami hopes that SCVF would become bigger events to give the opportunity to communicate with design for participants and people in Shizuoka.

I believe this festival become the biggest event among any design events in the near future. If you have any opportunity to join in this festival next time, you must do it!
