designboom’s editorial team is comprised of architects and designers with a passion for well-resolved details. during , the exhibit has featured a new experimental project called ‘equilibrium’, created in collaboration with ARAKAWA. murakoshi generated irregularly-formed lines using connected units, and balanced out the tensile strength of ARAKAWA grips and wires with the compressive strength of units in a perpendicular direction.

‘there is a captivating and subtle beauty in the extension of an elongated fine line that withstands gravity,’ the designer says. ‘traditionally, japanese aesthetics has always revolved around lines, as can be displayed in the approach of japanese style flower arrangement which has set them apart from the western style sensibilities. this project is an experimental attempt to establish a line as an individual product.’


jun murakoshi created irregularly formed random lines using connected units and balanced out the tensile strength achieved by ARAKAWA grips and wires with the compressive strength of units in a perpendicular direction. through this process, a delicate appearance of enduring gravity emerges.
