From the Warring States Period to the Edo Period, armor developed uniquely as a symbol of a warrior's pride and strength on the battlefield.
The aesthetics of armor, which made full use of craftsmanship and innovative design, as well as its functionality as protective gear and the development of engineering, can be seen in the development of armor. In "Kacchu Anatomy: The aesthetics of design and engineering," these fascinating aspects were exhibited together with sneakers designed by HATRA x MAGARIMONO and sneaker armor by Shinichi Mita. In addition, through the video by Rhizomatiks, which digitally analyzed the details and structure of the armor, and the spatial design by Nyle Ketting, which connects the armor to the reality of the modern human body, the armor begins to speak to us today.
