Emmanuelle Moureaux – Over the Rainbow

A French architect and artist Emmanuelle Moureaux used over 100,000 paper number cutouts to create this multihued installation designed to visualize the passing of time. Emanuelle fell in love with Tokyo and moved to live there, where she also established “emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design”. She worked also with Issey Miyake, Uniqlo, and Furla among many other notable brands.

Miss Blanche, the chair below, can be found at the end of the tunnel designed by twentieth-century Japanese designer, Shiro Kuramata. So marvelous!

Emmanuelle has created the concept of shikiri, which literally means “dividing (creating) space with colors”. She composes spaces through color as the main medium.

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.
