|Institute of Technologists
of Sengoku era,
|From the beginning of the design process,
we thought about how to create a solid and forceful atmosphere. We
also thought long and hard how to make our work closer to the original.
Because we anticipated that it would be difficult to manufacture only
using student level skill, we utilized a laser machine, which is installed
at the institute, to make the numerous parts of the body armor and
hawk. We thought to create a texture closer to the original by stacking
It was difficult to polish thousands of small parts by hand but the
numerous parts created the impression of mass and power. We think
that this is the point for which we were awarded the prize.
Our comments on prizewinning? We feel relief more than pleasure, because
we had been worried about the outcome since the beginning of the exhibition.
Future Goals (Message from Professor Shigeki Ichikawa)
I want many students to experience the pleasure and pain of manufacturing
and the feeling of accomplishment. I would like to continue providing
more practical education by studying methods and technologies that
enable the realization of flexible ideas without fear even when the
skill level may be still immature.
