Hibiki
There is a beautiful expression in Japanese: “kokoro ni hibiku” meaning “resounding in the heart”.
“Hibiki” was the concept behind the concert hall built by Suntory. The aim was to build a concert hall for classical music with the best acoustics, or “hibiki”.
I decided to design the symbol based on the Kanji-character of the word. Moreover, I designed several three-dimensional variations of the two-dimensional logo as sculptures to be placed inside and outside the hall.

Located at Karajan Place, this combination of half-circles sculpture expresses the sound of echo. Of course, HIBIKI means the echo in Japanese.
