Hope Tree At Tokyo Designers Week (Video)

An installation made only of paper and light attempts to reunite us with our environment.

One of the most intriguing and interesting displays at Tokyo Designers Week 2010 was the Hope Tree designed by 24° Studio. The installation, made from paper panels and LED lights, is housed inside a shipping container. When illuminated, the light is diffused through the thin paper and bounces off the sides of the container, creating a stunning display. This installation won the Environmental Container Design award during the festival because it attempts to reunite us with our environment and address the current obsession with products to “cure” climate change that end up denying access to a deeper understanding of our environment and prevent us from developing more efficient solutions to our current environmental dilemmas.
