CET05 Alternative : Yasushi CHO Exhibition
New products of household appliances are released thick and fast. Therefore, the products which we want become old models, while we hold household appliance catalogues in hands and choose favorites and think about our purses and the occasion of the purchase. Then, in many cases, new products bring the new sense for everyday life. Although new products gradually melt into daily life and commonplace, the catalogues which we looked at for a long time remind us of happy feeling of product purchase.
