Emmanuelle Moureaux – Eda

DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2010

For the first exhibition of “eda”, Emmanuelle Moureaux designed an installation using 2000 pieces (eda). 900 colorful “eda” (suspended type) and 1100 white “eda” (standing alone type) composed and structured the space.

Called eda, which means ‘branch’ in Japanese, the space has been filled with clusters of 200 overlapping coloured branching sticks. The coloured branches are suspended from the ceiling, whilst the white ones stand on the floor.

Beauty shown by plants in the natural world. Spreads of trees, colors of flowers, flows of leaf veins, linkages of cells. Everything is in a systematic harmony. In eda, forms are determined according to the natural system.

eda is assemblages of fine lines. Each line exists straight, and large complexities contain small simplicities. Biological forms overlap rhythmically, link air with another and create new space orders (“eda” meaning “ branch” in Japanese, is a product which creates spaces).

Design | October 13, 2021

In its previous life, this home was a spatially challenged '80s specimen known as a "contemporary." But, while outdated, the house - an arrangement of three barn-like structures - had great bones and flow. So, instead of razing it, we entirely re-imagined and re-created it to appear as though it was built and designed from scratch. Read more
