【MODERN TIMES × CLAUSTRUM "FASTER THAN LIGHT" EXHIBITION 期間限定展
LAST 2 DAYS 最後兩天】
Modern Times於五年前創立，一直致力於發掘世界各地高水準手工品牌。來自東京銀座的精鋼生活配件工房CLAUSTRUM就是當中極具代表性的單位。設計師遠藤健史 (Takeshi Endo) 老師大學時代於英國修讀建築，獨特的美學觀集合工業元素及未來感於一体，選用日本工業級不鏽鋼作為他的創作素材，憑著精細手工，創製出一系列前所未見的生活配件，環顧全球，只此一家。
經過多年合作，Modern Times與Claustrum培養出極深厚的互信關係，除了每年恆例的特別刻印活動，2016年3月，遠藤老師更於Modern Times舉行「Live Metal Making」特別活動，與香港支持者見面交流。
為紀念Modern Times成立五周年，我們與遠藤老師再度合作，舉行期間限定展「Faster Than Light」，展出從未曝光的Claustrum機密資料，包括製作工具、遠藤老師在構思期間製作的模型，以及從未正式投產的實驗商品等，置身展覽中就好像深入不對外開放的Claustrum銀座工房一樣。
Claustrum is a brand under Tokyo Ginza based Steel Inc. committed towards making products that are both simple and innovative. The physical address of Steel Inc. is located in a post-war glass blowing studio, founded by third generation owner Mr. Takeshi Endo, who studied architecture in the UK. All products crafted under the brand are made in the studio right in the heart of Ginza. Known for products that blend both creativity and functionality, like their card case that can be accessed with one hand, Claustrum is truly in a class of its own. During the product development phase, Mr. Endo spends a lot of time in his Ginza studio experimenting to find the most efficient manner of production. This is reason why Claustrum’s mechanical process, structural planning, and material selection are largely unique.
After years of cooperation, Modern Times and Claustrum have developed a deep mutual trust relationship. In addition to the annual free stamping service, in March 2016, Mr. Endo held a special "Live Metal Making" activity at Modern Times. Local fans were excited to meet Mr. Endo for the very first time in Hong Kong and the event was a huge success.
To celebrate the 5th anniversary, Modern Times has partnered with Mr. Endo to hold the exhibition "Faster Than Light" to showcase the undisclosed Claustrum “confidential information” — including production tools, old models, as well as experimental products that have not been officially put into production. Being in the exhibition will make one feel like visiting the Claustrum Ginza workshop — which is not open to the public.
