Mikiya Kobayashi's 'Playscape' Has an Ageless Concept

A visual art exhibition in Tokyo embraces the inner child in both young and old. Dubbed 'Playscape,' the event features five works by Japanese designer Mikiya Kobayashi that are available to be interacted with. The sculptural installations are covered in fabric, giving the pieces a sense of modernism. For the skeletal framework of her work, Mikiya Kobayashi uses locally sourced hardwood. The sustainable structures are then covered in Kvadrat textiles. Needless to say, the exhibit is arranged so that it simulates a design-forward playground. The event is also accompanied by a custom soundtrack mixed by Masato Hatanaka.

Ideally, the whimsical visual art exhibition in Tokyo is "intended to be welcoming and to encourage playfulness in visitors of all age groups" — from the orange A-line slope to the wave-like seesaw.
