The Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam, in cooperation with Koto Co., Ltd, will display cute and charming toys created by twelvetone and designed by Takashi Tsunoda at design exhibition ‘The World of Interior Toy’ from August 12 to September 9 at the center.
The name twelvetone is inspired by music which is composed with only twelve tones but the combination of the tones is almost infinite - and it implies that there are a lot of complicated things in the world and at the same time simple.
This company is a design philosophy of Tsunoda who has won the Good Design Awards of Japan twice for his interior toys. His products are all simple but cute and adorable with a variety of characters.
Piperoid (which won the Good Design Award in 2007) is a paper robot craft kit for both kids and adults. To create a copy of the character all you need is a pair of scissors and you just cut, fold and connect the pipes to build your own robot with movable joints in less than 30 minutes. Each character has a unique background story, and after assembly it can be used as an accent for home or office decor and even as a memo holder.
Play-deco (which won Good Design Award 2011) is a unique craft for home decor that combines wooden ‘bone’ with paper ‘skin’. Each package includes paper texture sheet and wooden bone sheet that is perforated and precut so there are no tools required – not even scissors.
Apart from the award-winning toys, Monster Cube which Tsunoda created inspired by traditional Japanese handicrafts, will also be displayed.
The exhibition starts at 2 p.m. on August 11 with a talk from the designer “How to design kawaii (cute) characters” at the Japan Foundation Exhibition Hall, 27 Quang Trung, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi. Workshops to make interior toys will be held from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
