A Room for 4,000 Hats

Hats off, indeed. Japanese design firm Nendo recently created a design exhibition celebrating 70 years of hat-making skills for internationally-acclaimed milliner Hirata Akio. The result? 4,000 ghost-like hats enveloping a massive room – a cloud of headwear, if you will. Take a look at these photos and tell us you’re not blown away, yes?:

Simply breathtaking. Although I do pity the person who had to set up such an extravagant installation! Well done indeed. (If you’re craving more design inspiration from Nendo, why not take a peek at The Bird Apartment? Equally mesmerizing!)
