    Villa Kujoyama, residency research

    As a designer engaged in the search of solace more than comfort alone, Johan Brunel has been pursuing the study of « things that feel good ». Resident at the Villa Kujoyama from January to June 2018, he is interested in what happens during communal bathing (sento, onsen) and he wants to transmit its qualities in other contexts. He collaborates especially with the cooper artist Shuji Nakagawa on the creation of new bathroom objects. He seeks to gather the conditions of a great collective and inter-cultural contemporary baths project .

    2018 年の一月から六月まで、京都のヴィラ九 条山でのレジデンス滞在を通して、日本にお ける“元気づけてくれるモノ”のデザインの 探求に取り組んでいるフィンランド系フラン ス人デザイナーです。その手始めとして、入 浴のひと時に欠かせないバス用品の製作を進 めています。彼は、木製のアーティスト、中川修司と共同して、新しいバスルームのオブジェクトの作成に取り組んでいます。彼は、偉大な集団的、異文化的な現代風呂プロジェクトの条件を集めようとしている。
