Presentation by Ian Lynam
Ian Lynam’s presentation addresses the career of legendary designer Sugiura Hisui (1876-1965) and examines the relationship between business and design from an economics and cultural perspective. Through his research about Sugiura Hisui, Lynam will analyse the rise of consumerism in Japan, how kimono fabrics were marketed to the masses and the veritable interplay between Japanese and Western aesthetics. Lynam will also include previously unpublished images of some of Sugiura’s projects, some of them extremely rare—all delivered in formats accessible to experts and the general public alike.
