Old news, but I thought it was worth mentioning. During the first 2 weeks of the opening of the first physical Beyes shop at the recently finished Omotesando Hills in Tokyo, we held a small exhibition together with nanika, wowlab+wildcard,Takashi Kamada and semitransparent design. Produced and curated by Koichiro Tanaka. I had a great time creating one of the pieces that was cycled among the others every day. Although the exhibition is officially over now, the installations are still being rotated every day in the store, so if you happen to be in the area, be sure to check it out.

IDII no more. Last february, on an unprecedented and incomprehensible move, Telecom Italia, the biggest sponsor to Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, quit his sponsorship to the school. In the midst of the cloud of the debacle that generated, all teachers quit, and the school, as we know it, closed it's doors. Most of my classmates decided to embark themselves on a new project, a project that merged the remainings of IDII and Domus Academy. Hence, IDI was born. I decided to come back to Tokyo, and continue here working with my old workmates, Basement Factory Productions. Together, we are in the process of bringing alive a new company that will focus on producing the most outstanding work on communication design, interaction design and information visualization as well as seriously creative technological research and development. wooha! tough times ahead, but I'm definitively super excited.
