While I was browsing the news section of Yahoo Japan,Â I spotted whatÂ I thought was a really huge billboard hanging off the side of a building. On closer inspection I realized the building wasÂ the Sony Ginza head office inÂ Tokyo.
A bit more research revealed that SonyÂ hiredÂ top graphic artists, Hajime Yoshio, ZanPon and Ryuji Otani, to designÂ three unique skins for laptops, cell phones, media players and headphones. The items are limited edition, so consider yourself lucky if you get hold of one.
Personally, I’m just amazed by the building and surprised it doesn’t cause traffic accidents as drivers crane their necks to look at it. Sony calls it the “Art Wall” and says it measures approximately six meters across and is 38 meters high. I think it looks fantastic and really brightens up an otherwise drab cityscape. IÂ wonder what they will replace it with when the exhibition is finished?If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I'd love to hear from you!
