(Video link here.)  We love this installation at one of Issy Miyake’s stores: computer-controlled electric fans sending little gusts and sculpting an ethereal fabric. We wish we could translate the idea to home but think it’s beyond our reach. BUT we could take the idea of the etched-looking floor that we saw early on in the video, painting one color as a first coat and a different color on top so that when the paint scratched (as inevitably it would) it would create an “intentional” design.
