Dress Code

May 25, 2011

A playful and versatile furniture piece, created by furniture designer Fukutoshi Ueno and fashion designer Akira Isogawa.

Dress Code is a playful and versatile furniture object, designed by furniture designer Fukutoshi Ueno in collaboration with fashion designer Akira Isogawa.

Dress Code is an adaptation of Ueno’s furniture piece Code, inspired by the series of symbols assigned to the mistresses of the 11th century Japanese nobleman, Hikaru Genji. The silver ash surfaces of Code have now been embellished with a series of bright, kimono-inspired prints designed by Akira Isogawa to create Dress Code.

Dress Code can function as a table, stool or art object in its own right, with flashes of contrasting prints inspired by the geisha, the tattoo, and even manga comic images. The quartet of Dress Code pieces were recently purchased for the permanent collection of The National Gallery of Australia, where they will be on display in late 2011.
