Emmanuelle Moureaux uses candy colors in her Japanese exhibit ‘100 Colors.’ Based out of Tokyo, this architect runs her own design firm with her buildings bursting with colorful flair. ‘100 Colors’ is currently on display at the Shinjuku Mitsui building in Tokyo, participating in the ‘Shinjuku Creators Festa 2013.’

Moureaux experiments with traditional Japanese paper screens and categorizes them by color. The overall theme of the exhibit uses color as a divider of space, expressing hospitality in public spaces. The dividers are suspended from the ceiling by cables and sit low to the ground. White abstract seating is arranged underneath them so visitors can gaze and contemplate the exhibit at their leisure. The paper dividers are interesting ways to categorize space and demonstrate how light is processed through them as well.
