Wings, feathers, and elytrons, Masayuqi Yoshida has chosen to explore a unique symbol that for him expresses singularity, aspiration and respect. He has strengthened his expression through the technique of knitting, working with infinite shapes and materials. Since 1991, he has participated in both collective and individual exhibits in museums and galleries across Japan.
This winter at Playtime Tokyo, his knit work will take the shape of a giant tree, where people will gather and exchange in trust.

Kim Songhe was born in Tokyo in 1982. After graduating from Oda Design College, she started her design activity. In 2005, her chandeliers displayed at the Loveless store in Aoyama caught many people’s eyes. Since then, she has produced many more for shop displays in Japan and exhibitions in San Francisco and Seoul museums (2009). Made by pasting ready-made products and described as “junk collage” her chandeliers look messy at first glance, but are nevertheless assembled in a strange balance, releasing a feeling of innocence. In her latest works she uses traditional lucky charms, such as Daruma, Manekineko and Kumade.
For Playtime she has created a disco/pop chandelier made of ‘bling’ accessories !
