Space Suit of the Week

Photographs of this “mysterious man wearing a space suit” were taken by Natsumi Hayashi. Maybe it’s appropriate that a photographer best known for her levitating self-portraits would have an interest in zero gravity couture, but I can’t find any information on the suit, itself. Who made this delightful helmet-turned-terrarium? The suit reminds me of small planters from designer Matteo Cibic:

Big thanks to Johnny from from Spoon & Tamago for sending in pictures of the mystery suit.

    Nice! I love this post. Reminds me of a project I saw at MassMOCA a year or so ago. It was these hanging terrariums that you could stick your head in.

    I dug up a bit more info on the suit. It was part of Tokyo Designers Week 2009 and people were allowed to enter it. The unknown designer writes, “even in space you can enjoy fresh oxygen…it’s a piece that perceives the human ego in a most cynical fashion.”
