Super Normal

The “Super Normal” event at the AXIS Gallery should be listed in my TAB selections, but here’s more from REALTOKYO:

Fukasawa Naoto and Jasper Morrison, who are lucidly capturing voids of the daily routine in their products, have collected a number of different things they classify as “more normal than normal”. In the words of Morrison, the forms accumulated in the everyday are examples where “things simply fell into their places”. Big hints related to products and their designs can obviously be found especially where there’s nothing special at all. Fukasawa and Morrison carefully scoop up things one usually sees but not really notices, and this exhibition is an occasion to find your own answer on the question, “What do these products reveal to us?”
