Tetsu to Kinu Scarf


Tetsu to kinu scarf (鉄と絹スカーフ), literally “iron and silk” scarf is an ethereal silk scarf and is a reproduction of one of artist Miya Ando’s steel paintings.

While vastly contrastive compared to Ando’s massive iron and steel sculptures, the airy scarf maintains an ambiguous balance between light and heavy. And whether it’s wrapped around your neck, used as a vessel or simply hung on a wall, it’s appearance seems to morph, much in the same way the reflective qualities of her sculptures change the way you view the artwork depending on where you’re standing.
