In terms of the configuration and installation of the venue, the familiar ideas and things create the interesting space. Each booth demonstrates the exhibitors own ideas and reflects a variety of presentations. The theme of the event revolves around the idea of “Make Shift” or impromptu. Five constructions at the site reflect this theme of building on the spot and appear rough and incomplete.
As a tribute to the closing of Platform21, a design museum in Amsterdam, Kimura and SuzukiYuuri created the project, “Breakfast Machine” and showcased it for the first time at BA to MA Exhibition vol 2. The project involved the collaboration of Kimura, Masamichi Tosa, and SuzukiYuuri. The machine automatically makes breakfast and was in operation every day of the exhibition, causing endless laughs and becoming a popular piece in the exhibition.
After working as an assistant at Meiwa Electric, Kimura quits his work and establishes Kimura Factory. He began building daft machines or machines others wouldn’t know how to make or order.
A writer and designer based in London and Stockholm designs contents for events and holds design workshops.
In 1993, Masamichi formed Meiwa Electric his younger brother Tosa Nobumichi and currently serves as the president of Meiwa Electric.
