I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


haptic adj. Of or relating to the sense of touch; tactile.


What happens when you ask 21 international architects and designers to create objects that focus on the sense of touch, instead of colour and form? The result is a beautiful and intelligent collection of fascinating items driven by the senses including hair lanterns, soft doorknobs and packaging made of replica fruit skin.
This exhibition features work by Shigeru Ban, Jasper Morrison and Toyo Ito, it is commissioned by Japanese designer Kenya Hara, Chief Executive of the Nippon Design Centre and MUJI.
