Akira Minagawa joined Artek project "FIN-JPN friendship collection" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Finland and Japan's diplomatic establishment.
The book "Pieces of Aalto - A Visual Round Trip - Aalto no Kakera" released at the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2019. Minagawa drew illustrations with motifs of product designs created by Alvar Aalto and Aino Aalto.
He reinterpreted Aalto's design, and developing the story with drawings, poetry, and words seems to express each other's "thought to make things".
We hope that many people will see the collaboration that has been realized over time and space.
