LECTURED IN DESIGNPLEX

In one of the special classes of the Tokyo Designplex Institute located in Shibuya, Mr. Ishiguro from OUWN gave a lecture.

It became a unique lecture with an interesting twist to it,
beginning with the title “The connecting meals that restaurant OUWN produces,” its content being strongly influenced by Mr. Ishiguro’s personal experience as he often gets his inspiration from cooking and food.

In the workshop,
he let the participants share the experience of finding out how to expand their ideas by exchanging them and by combining everyday techniques with some special methods.

We want to thank the many students that participated for their willing attendance.

BOOK BOX / DOT TRIP EXHIBITION

On the 1st book floor of the 2nd building of the Daikanyama Tsutaya Store, there is a BOOK BOX, a box shaped bookshelf that introduces readers to current prominent creators.

It is currently exhibiting the exhibit “Book jackets you can feel” in collaboration with the magazine Brain, published by Senden Kaigi.
The title is “Dot Trip Exhibition”.
Through the designer Atsushi Ishiguro’s “book jackets that can be felt”, the feelings of going on a journey of thought with the expressions of a book are linked with the actual journey of experiencing a new sensation.
These book jackets invite readers into the world of books.

Mr. Ishiguro has designed and will be exhibiting and selling numerous kinds of book jackets that emphasize both design and content,
so that readers may go on many different kinds of trips.

Exhibition Opening September 1, 2019 at the Daikanyama Tsutaya Bookstore, Building 2, Floor 1

About

OUWN was founded as a corporation in 2013 by Atsushi Ishiguro and Munechika Fujita. The name stems from our hope to foster interaction, dialogue, and feelings between our owns and yours ( "own" + "u" ) through designing.
In addition to art direction, OUWN’s activities extend into many different fields such as graphics, web, fashion, visual, logo, and other types of design.

With a variety of nice dialogue with you as a "dot", OUWN wishes that dots will connect down the road.
