Explorers on the Moon‘ by Hergé, 1954

I like this interior colour – Hergé must have been influenced by his contemporary designers, such as Jean Prouvé.  Design details for light weight structures and round corners of drawers, dots on the floor… they all are reflecting the atmosphere of that time.

Why do I categorise this in ‘kawaii/cute’? – the back view of Snowy… his skinny neck is so cute!

月世界探検』に出てくる宇宙船のインテリアの色合いが好きです。作者のエルジェは、間違いなくジャン・プルーヴェなどの同世代を生きたデザイナー達の仕事に影響を受けていたと思います。軽量化のための穴、角の丸い引き出し、床の丸い模様など、どれも時代の空気を感じさせてくれます。

そして、スノーウィーのほっそりした首の後ろ姿がかわいいので「kawaii」カテゴリーに。
