A Sony designer recently exhibited a piece at the INSPIRATION: AGITATION exhibit, a showcase that ran from November 1 to November 5, 2017,
at AXIS Gallery in Roppongi (Tokyo). Featuring in-house designers with extensive experience in the field of industrial design, each of whom created a new work for the exhibit, INSPIRATION: AGITATION strove to confront the contemporary design world with new questions and new inspirations.
The exhibit framed designers’ current thoughts and visions as "questions" —and the objects on display as the "answers."
Hosoda exhibited the "Full Stick Wrap-Body," a high-functionality body suit concept model that wraps and sticks to the human body with a bevy of near-future technologies.
Yasuhide Hosoda works on projects across a wide variety of fields, ranging from wearable devices and AI-driven applications to designs for film props and new business development.
