Wind

Japan is a mountainous country with a rugged coastline. This terrain is an important factor in the country's wide range of seasonal winds, which have had a strong impact on Japanese designers. Carp streamers, wind chimes and the architecture of traditional homes all make use of the flowing wind. On this episode of DESIGN TALKS, we look at the presence of wind in Japanese design with guest Susumu Shingu, who is famous for his "wind sculptures".
