pop-up bar

Japanese designer Naoya Matsumoto collaborated with the students of Seian University of Art and Design to create a pop-up bar using Yoshi, a type of reed grass that grows freely around Lake Biwa. Reeds used to be so ubiquitous along the edges of rivers and lakes that the name of Japan in the most ancient texts that refer to it is Ashihara no Nakatsukuni–“Central Land of the Reed Plains.”

Matsumoto and the students took two days to construct the University and pop-bar where people could actually come and hang out. According to Matsumoto, “The most important point was how to create a simple yet attractive space for the user.”
