Under the directorship of Reiko Sudo since 1987, the Nuno Corporation has been responsible for making some of the most innovative textiles the world has ever seen. Rethinking both high- and low-tech approaches to cloth, Nuno took apart the very idea of fabric. When it was reassembled, Nuno had created unheard of textures, patterns, and forms.
The Sudo Salon is an opportunity to spend an intimate day with Reiko Sudo as she explains the conditions that enabled the Nuno Corporation to come into being and the philosophy that inspired them to master a range of experimental approaches.
Reiko Sudo will speak about the range of disciplines that come together in fabric design and some of the strategies that have been successful. In addition Reiko Sudo will have samples from her textile collection on hand.
