Sharp-pointed thorns. It is a manifestation of its aggressiveness that it will not let others come near, And a manifestation of its own weakness. Aggressiveness and Weakness When wrapped around in the two conflicting senses, I feel like reaching out and touch the pain in spite of myself. Toge (Japanese for thorn) is a modular product. Each "thorn" gives the viewer the impression of a sharp and stiff object, but these modules can in fact be freely combined to create a soft, pliable and standalone space. At DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2011, Emmanuelle arranged five hundred of these Toge modules in 15 different colors to form a wedding dress. This conceptual piece was an exercise in contradictory impressions and sensations - solid and stiff but soft and pliable, menacing yet gentle.
