Exhibitions > Gathering - Miake

Displayed in the museum's lower gallery, the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE collection is revolutionary in its application of pop-up methodologies and ecological awareness as well as its efforts to sustain Japanese artisanal knowledge. Working closely with the computer scientist Jun Mitani and Miyake's Reality Lab textile engineer Manabu Kikuchi and pattern engineer Sachiko Yamamoto, mathematical algorithms are converted into 3D models before becoming creative dimensional garments. Another of the collection's concepts, IN-EI, applies the same geometric formulas to unfold lamps - produced by Artemide, an example of which will be exhibited in Holon. Made using recycled PET products and fibres, 132 5. embraces the ideas of "regeneration" and "re-creation" which are important to Miyake.

Miyake describes 132 5. as "a work of hope", expressing his environmental concerns for the future: "I've been thinking about the challenges we'll have to deal with in the 21st century. Most of us feel some kind of uncertainty, with the population increasing and resources decreasing... It's important to make clothes for long-term use now, not just one season. We can't keep throwing things away... We have to face these issues. Many people repeat the past. I'm not interested. I prefer evolution."

Issey Miyake, 132 5., Autumn Winter 2013:
