The Artless design agency has opened a new office/gallery/cafe in Nakameguro (a move from the previously smaller space they occupied in Harajuku) and it looks like a stunning space (see photos in this Spoon & Tamago post). The gallery is strangely by appointment only, but the cafe is open to all, and specializes in both coffee and green tea.
The video above, “Urban Abstract,” is a project that was created in Tokyo for a Finnish TV channel, a collaboration between art director Jopsu Ramu and Shun Kawasaki (Artless).
Urban Abstract is a journey across urban space that unfolds in forty, 5 second parts. The journey, in one, two and three dimensions, is a bit like abstract sur?ng in which the original destination is only reached a er a number of seemingly random yet linked detours occur. Points , lines, planes and other abstract elements create a journey through an Urban Abstract.
