Artless Craft Tea & Coffee

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.

Urban Abstract

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.
