Ribbon Wall


Japanese architects Ryuji Nakamura & associates recently installed their latest creation for  'CoSTUME NATIONAL' at the CNAC LAB in Tokyo, Japan. Within a bare white walled room, hung ribbons bow to the floor creating an optical illusion of a textured wall if you move from one side of the space to the other.  As you adjust to a chosen vantage point the clothed mannequins are revealed in threes, leaving only a selection of the work visible at one time.

Measuring 18 mm wide, the thin strips of polyester ribbons create a dynamic curtain that seemingly changes its opacity depending on how far one is away from it. Simple and airy, the design allows for an interactive space that 'breathes' in and out of transparency according to each point in the room. - DEZEEN
