An exhibition held at the AXIS Building in Roppongi, with a difference: Woodcraft by Honda’s designers and modelers.
The theme - woodcraft - is not completely alien to car design.
Learning universal beauty and making new discoveries through traditional craftwork. The joy of conceiving, making a work of art.
Every work of art on display is the result of the hand moving, thinking, and making something new.
Having fun, seriously. Exploring the power of products.
A modeling study project - “using the natural flexibility of wood in modeling.” Through constructing a canoe, the team learns the difficulties, limits and possibilities of bentwood processes, and finds forms that most emphasize the wooden material, forms that were meant to be. The team also learns how functional modeling should be, and the meaning and beauty of form through their experiences.
A collaboration between the Hello Woods nature experience center at Twin Ring Motegi, and Honda Design. Honda’s designers learn how birds feel, through building birdhouses from timber offcuts at Hello Woods.
