TIAM WORKSHOP & PHOTOBOOTH
'If I could ever transform myself...'
TIAM Magazine is back at Playtime Tokyo with a new workshop and photobooth!
On the workshop side, they're teaming up with Clairefontaine Fine arts to enable children to give substance to the wildest metamorphoses they can think of.
These dreams will then be immortalized in pictures, thanks to the great support of Polaroid Originals.
invited on the 'Pathfinders' trend space
TOHU-BOHU is a graphic and textile creation duo formed by Lysandre Graebling and Lucile Bonnaud.
Their universe is expressed through the creation of fashion and interior design prints, but also through embroidery, scenography, and even the conception and running of graphic workshops for children (Musee de Poche, Centre Pompidou...) Together, they have created a poetic and naive art-like world combining delicacy and dreams.
For the Pathfinders trend, they have imagined an extraordinary herbarium mixing dried, embroidered and drawn vegetation, in the manner of a botanical chart.
It is a tribute to slowness, to those moments in childhood dedicated to the observation of nature, to the pleasure of collecting things and to the slow learning of ancestral techniques. A way to illustrate children's instinctive capacity to contemplate the world and to live at a rhythm which, increasingly, inspires their elders.
invited on the 'Fantasia' trend space
For more than 10 years ELSA DRAY-FARGES has developed a protean body of work made of colorful and joyful drawings and volumes tinged with a certain melancholy. She creates papier mache sculptures and bespoke installations for window displays and events in a lively way that is always profoundly connected to the art of storytelling.
Imaginary landscapes, floating villages, extraordinary animal masks, her sculptures and drawings burst with colors and fantasy and communicate an instantaneous joy.
Her clients are from diverse and varied backgrounds that include fashion (Hermès, Bonpoint, Tommy Hilfiger, Aesics), interior design (Anne-Claire Petit), the press (Télérama, Kid’s Wear, Grazia Casa, Psychologie Mag), and theatre (Les Possédés, l’Avantage du doute).
On the Fantasia trend space, Elsa's papier mache and painted masks will project strange and extraordinary shadows.
invited on the 'Press start' trend space
MOLISTUDIO is a 3D art direction and design boutique based in Buenos Aires, founded by passionate storytellers with a whimsical take on the everyday life. The team is, insistently, on the lookout for a deep color sense and a strong use of the metaphor; always aiming to find new excuses to celebrate the translation of ordinary life into the surreal while exploring the mesmerizing nature of this process.
An image from their Tennis series will illustrate the Press Start theme. Here, there are no rules other than to adhere to one principal: tennis was born to be graphical!
Photo exhibition by Milk Magazine
MilK magazine, guided as ever by its sensitive and hedonistic take on life, has had some inspiring encounters. Years of singular and enriching experiences have allowed MilK to turn from children’s fashion pioneer into documenter of a certain kind of family art de vivre. A family lifestyle of which fashion and design are integral parts, equals alongside the arts of cooking or travelling. Next stop: Berlin, where Marian Schönhofer, yoga teacher, does a little practice every morning with her daughter.
