Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum has published their very first Symbol Mark and Logo designed by Tokujin Yoshioka on November 15th.

The cubic architecture of the current museum building, designed by Kunio Maekawa in 1975.

Tokujin has designed the symbol mark based on the concept of cube, which connotes “the origin of creation.”

The color is born from the harmonious combination of the reddish-brown color of the museum exterior, and red, which is a hint of Japanese inspiration.

The Symbol mark is consisted of two kinds; the cubic solid version, and the liner design with the feel of transparency.

This design is simple, yet has a strong, clear identity which everyone, from children to grown-ups, all over the wold will feel the familiarity. It is the image of the unification of the history and the future of the museum.

Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is now under its renovative construction, remaining its existing building frame, and will be opening next April.

  1. Love it! Simplicity is king in logo creation, but it’d be nice to see at least a touch of more color :)
