Practically Invisible

October 2012

A hearty chat with Eisuke Tachikawa

NOSIGNER is the name given by Eisuke Tachikawa to his design practice. Believing strongly in something he calls ‘invisible design’, attention is focused on the human aspect through attention to natural methods, handmade qualities, and the desire to improve upon current conditions in society; in other words, addressing matters within the creations that go beyond the practicality of the product itself. In recent projects, he has taken on the subject of ‘edible design’, lending a new twist to such things as noodles.
