The Japanese creator Kohei Nawa conducted a cultural seminar with European Design Labs 09 students on. Entitled Higher is Beautiful, he proposed the investigation of material and conceptual design at the same time. The cultural seminar directed by the young plastics artist Kohei Nawa involved a challenge: to achieve the highest structure possible with limited material resources consisting only of two letter-sized pieces of cardboard.
This was intended to focus on ingenuity, reconceive the notion of beauty and familiarize oneself with the physical properties of a material in order to achieve an extreme but simple object.[vimeo]http://www.vimeo.com/5077660[/vimeo]
