Flux Fields

Flux fields are being developed by Trudy, Olesja and Iro as their design strategy to create a spatial order in the arrival hall at Tokyo Station. The intricate 2D patterns became a foundation for 3D surface ceiling systems including lighting, signage and visual navigational logic.

Final Project - Tokyo Station's Arrival Hall

We have started to work on our final studio project -- design of ceiling systems at Tokyo Station's arrival hall. The ambition of our project is to design a 3D surface that integrates structural, lighting, navigational and acoustic systems into a coherent form, reducing visual noises and confusions.
