Maison Louis Carré
* folding cosmos | Maison Louis Carré
* folding cosmos is based on the “One-mat-room”, a small meditation and study room created by Japanese explorer Takeshiro Matsuura at the end of the 19th century. Project designer and director Miwako Kurashima creates a contemporary version of this minimal space within Maison Louis Carré, combined with a Japanese tea set, inviting artists to create site specific or adapted works for this particular context. Alvar Aalto was much inspired by Japanese culture at the start of his career and this can be observed throughout Maison Louis Carré. The small cosmos room relates naturally to the spaces of the villa, with the strong bond between design details and architecture, interior and nature, minimal entity and the universe. The collaborating artists are: Carine Guimbard, Ai Kitahara, Kineta Kunimatsu, Isamu Noguchi, Mireya Samper and Ayumi Tanaka.
