The central atrium of GINZA SIX has already become the mall’s popular feature as it exhibits works of world-renowned artists such as
Yayoi KusamaDaniel Buren, Nicolas Buffe, Chiharu Shiota, and Klaus Haapaniemi. For their current feature, they have the world-famous Japanese designer, Tokujin Yoshioka. Some of his famous works are the glass bench, Water Block which was permanently installed at the Musee d’Orsay museum in Paris, France, and the relay torch for the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.

Glass Tea House KOU-AN, at the National Art Center, Tokyo.

The Prismatic Cloud is a masterpiece that shows a shapeless light. Inspired by the law of nature, the layering of ten thousand prism rods made the 10-meter long sculpture of light. When natural light passes through coming from the approximately 400-square meter wide atrium, it produces an innumerable transparent light that is an illusion of light in the clouds. The piece changes depending on the angle, height, or position from wherever you are looking so it’s definitely something to watch for.

It looks different whenever you change your angle or viewpoint.
