“WINDOWOLOGY: Estudo de janelas no Japão” at Japan House São Paulo


Index of Window Sounds and Movements 

For this project, we sought to extract and observe the sounds and movements associated with the opening and closing of windows, in order to shed more light on how we perceive a “window” through our ears and eyes. A Glossary of Window Sounds and Movements is the first research project of “Windows Products Inside,” carried out as a collaboration between the Window Research Institute and product designer Yoh Komiyama, with video imagery created by Tomohiro Okazaki.
