Panasonic’s in-house design team has created an eco-friendly show house in Tokyo. The house opened this month and uses its innovative interiors to showcase Panasonic products. Its design aims to protect the wider environment – with solar power generation systems and a Green roof – as well as demonstrate an innovative and futuristic way of life. It is now open to the public and can be visited every weekend and on national holidays.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
