textile designer yuri himuro showcases her solo suspended ‘flower’ exhibition at the case gallery in tokyo. the exhibition focuses on a handkerchief/bouquet motif which she designed for the japanese handkerchief brand ‘swimmie’. hundreds of hanging handkerchief bouquets fill the interior space and create a dreamy special experience.

to fully express the concept of yuri himuro‘s exhibition to passing pedestrians, the time-controlled mechanism in the window display moves the handkerchiefs up and down at varying times. from a distance, the suspending handkerchiefs create a colorful and gradient color scheme, however upon closer inspection, the printed bouquet of flowers reveal an intricate design.
