Designed by the French architect Emmanualle Moureaux, 100 colors was exhibited in Shinkjuki Creator’s Festa 2013, Japan last month. The installation created a floating volume of continuous spectrum of 100 shades.

Composed of 840 colored papers from Takeo attached to the ceiling in perfectly aligned rows, the art piece displayed a product line from the Japenese paper manufacturer. Bean Bags were placed underneath the art work to invite visitors to immerse themselves into different angles and perspectives of the space created above. On the rear wall, hundred circles in the colors used in the istallation were placed where visitors can indicate their favorite color.

Inspired from Tokyo’s ‘flood’ of colors, Moureaux’s design concept ‘shikiri’ is using three-dimensional color elements to create and redefine space.
