Showcased in Milan today, Frottage: Natural Story is a show that is inspired by unspoilt nature. Curated by Setsu and Shinobu Ito, Frottage combines techniques to create a sense of touch and smell from natural environments.
Inspired by their Japanese roots, the curators believe that each natural material has a God and a soul and are inspired by a natural revival in our hectic, man-made lives; nature is taken as it is, without adding or removing anything.
Subscribers can track this trend further here, with an exclusive installation by Japanese designers Nendo.
