French designer Emmanuelle Moureaux has created a massive installation of branches for both the Paris and Tokyo events called Wood Furniture Japan Award 2016. With over 20,000 individual pieces in over 100 color, the cumulative mass of the installation is a web-like form that defies the stark industrialization of many craft show. This piece, and others that the artist has made, explore the intensity of color that she experienced during her first visit to Tokyo.

The artist says, “Each module is a metaphoric expression of the phenomenon of ramification, which symbolizes the encounters between designers and artisans as their paths intersect and diverge with valuable experiences, leading them to a new path.” She calls the piece “bunshi” which means “ramification”.
