Ocean of Dots

by Matsuya Art Works Co. Ltd.


In Okayama, Japan, a private school’s office may have a dizzying effect on visitors.

Designer Tetsuya Matsumoto created the space using thousands of white dots, which appear to be hovering in the air. The dots cover translucent screen walls – which divide the area into separate meeting rooms – plus floor, ceiling and other walls.

Furthermore, the dots extend onto a mirror wall, which visually expands the space while adding the illusion of another million dots.

‘Walking in the office feels like swimming in an ocean of dots,’ Matsumoto says.
