総務省が主催した「公共施設オープン・リノベーション マッチングコンペティション」で採択され、実現したプロジェクト。自治体がリノベーションを希望する公共施設の情報を登録、クリエイターが自治体と共同でコンペに応募するというものだった。リノベーションの内容だけでなく、事業内容や運営体制、地域に対してどのように貢献できるか、などについても提案することが求められた。

Public Facility Open Renovation KIITO

our idea was selected by “Public Facility Open Renovation Matching Competition” which was hosted by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the project was put into practice.

Local authorities registered information of public facilities which they’d like to renovate, and the creators and the local authorities in pairs applied for the competition together.

The competition required the proposition of not only the content of renovation, but the company activities, management structure, how the company contribute the community.

The white oval-line shape combinations of display furniture were inspired by “cocoon”.

“KIITO” was originally founded for inspection center of export raw silk in Kobe in 1927, and the design was based on it. The scenery of “cocoons” which were set in the air randomly on purpose reflects the image of Japanese garden, or dry landscape. ”KIITO” has its strong wild sense atmosphere of floor and wall, so the delicate thin lines of cocoon frames produces a sense of floating on air, and clarity, the more vividly focusing on the work. As the design is neutral, therefore in the shop, reasonable products, avant-garde ones, and one of a kind works by well-experienced designers, various kinds of products are beautifully naturally lined up. Also in the gallery, from young designers to experienced ones, a wide range of art works are exhibited, contrasting its greatness each other.

Simultaneously, lightning that the design concept is also cocoon, illuminates the place with soft light.

Cocoon is a symbol of nurturing life. As threads spun from cocoon turns into raw silk, and silk goods, this facility will keep sending Japanese design beauty through Kobe harbor to Japan, even to the world.
