of Yaguchinowatashi Station.

Stool, a piece by contemporary artist Nawa Kohei is now on display on the southbound platform at Yaguchinowatashi Station on the Tokyu Tamagawa train line. The piece was created under the auspices of the Tamagawa Art Line Project, and plans are to keep it on permanent exhibition. Nawa created the work by placing a stool inside a clear acrylic box, then filling the box with transparent liquid silicone rubber. Silicone was chosen for its high transparency, excellent weathering properties and durability.

Amid the familiar scene of the station, the work exudes presence and is quite an attention grabber among riders on the platform. Be sure to check it out next time you are at Yaguchinowatashi Station.
