  • teamLab Borderless Digital Art Museum Unveil Springtime Display

    09.February.2019 | SPOT

    teamLab Borderless is a digital art museum co-managed by MORI Building and teamLab that seeks to create a “borderless world” made possible by digital art. For this spring only the museum has announced a limited time display that will run from early March to late May.

     

    The digital art pieces will take guests through a world of spring. Springtime flowers like Daphne odora and Astragalus sinicus will bloom in Spirits of the Flowers while plum blossoms and tree peonies will decorate Flowers – Layered Ultrasubjective Space. A spring scene will also unfold over in Memory of Topography, and Cherry blossom coloured lights will illuminate Forest of Illuminating Lamps.

     

     

    Forest of Resonating Lamps – One Stroke (Running: Early March – Late April)

    Two new displays will be exhibited inside Forest of Resonating Lamps – One Stroke for spring only. This includes the Cherry Blossom display with lamps lit up in that distinct pink colour and the Spring Hills & Fields display where the colours of five different flowers will radiate including four types of Japanese kerria and peach tree plants. When a person stands next to a lamp the light resonates to the next two lamps and this continues, spreading the lights across the room. This happens until all of the lamps have shone once brightly before returning to the first lamp.

     

    Spirits of the Flowers (Running: Early March – Late April)

    Flowers bloom and change throughout the year, and this rings true with this art installation. March will see the arrival of Daphne odora and in April Astragalus sinicus.

     

     

    Flowers – Layered Ultrasubjective Space (Running: February 9 – Late May)

    Plum blossoms will be rendered through February and March while April and May will give rise to tree peony displays. teamLab explains how “flowers are born, they grow, bud, blossom and in time the petals scatter and they die and fade away. The flowers repeat the process of birth and death endlessly.” This process is recreated at Layered Ultrasubjective Space.

     

    Memory of Topography (Running: Early March – Late May)

    This installation depicts a rural mountain landscape of different elevations, and from March onward will give rise to elements of spring. teamLab explains that as the seasons change so does the appearance of flowers and insects. They highlight how even if you don’t see scenery changing, including the landscapes, it always is and will never be the same twice, meaning a single moment in nature will never be repeated and can never be seen again.

     

    Experience nature and the latest technology come together this spring at teamLab Borderless.

  • Girls’ Sweets Coffret Christmas Buffet to be Held at Hilton Tokyo Odaiba

    17.October.2018 | FOOD

    Christmas is loved particularly by girls in Japan as it’s the season when all the sparkly items begin to fall and flicker. Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is bringing a Christmas buffet this year which it is calling the Girls’ Sweets Coffret. It’s inspired by the “Christmas Coffret” cosmetic sets that are sold during the Christmas season only and tickle the hearts of girls across the country.

     

    Coffret is a French word that refers to a small jewel box. Searches for the term “Christmas Coffret” have been on the increase in Japan since 2015 and in 2016 and 2017 ranked in the top 10 most searched Christmas related terms by women. Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is responding to this by packing everything a girl could want into their Christmas buffet.

    The buffet is overlooked by a bright pink Christmas tree under which are all presents a girl could hope for including a dress, jewel box, flowers and more―all edible. A cute Santa Claus, reindeer and snowmen also decorate the table in all their delicious dessert glory. The colour palette is girly but stylish, with pink as the main colour and blacks and whites everywhere else.

     

    There will also be a photo spot decked out with a pink Christmas tree, huge life-sized presents and other Christmas motifs. What’s more is that guests who attend during the event dressed in something pink or wearing ribbons will receive a special drink.


    The line-up of desserts all have some very enticing names. Translated from Japanese, some to look forward include the “Going Out With Your in My Best Dress – Princess Tart,” “Like a Romantic Bride – Pink Dress Strawberry Chiffon Cake,” “What I Want the Most: Jewellery – Yogurt Panna Cotta Jelly,” “Drag Me Away – Pink Pearl Cupcakes,” and more.

    Also on the list is a cake made to look like Santa’s belly called “I’ll Start My Diet Tomorrow – Cranberry Mascarpone Santa Cake.” There’s also the the “Santa’s Happy Helpers – Reindeer Chocolate Cake.”

    There’s a range of Christmas classics too like the yule log and stollen as well as a tree-shaped mohn plunder. If you’re looking for Christmas treats this year then look no further!
