Japanese art director (and kawaii culture evangelist) Sebastian Masuda has created a lot of cool things in his career – from founding the iconic Harajuku brand 6%DOKIDOKI, to art directing many of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s music videos and tours to creating sets for Japanese musical stage productions to numerous projects in a variety of fields. This week, he added a new title to his ever-growing resume – Christmas tree designer!
The “Melty Go-Round” Christmas tree – which will be on display until Christmas day – is part of the Roppongi Hills “Christmas in the Sky 2013 – SKY ILLUMINATION”. The tree is located at Tokyo City View, an observation deck at the top (52nd floor) of Roppongi Hills. Tokyo City View offers a panoramic view of Tokyo from above.
Masuda’s theme for the Melty Go-Round Christmas tree is “Dreams spinning on board a merry-go-round.” The tree features animated merry-go-round horses (see the video below) as well as lots of colorful lights and cute items melted directly into the tree. Sebastian Masuda’s brand, 6%DOKDIOKI, also has a popup shop at Tokyo City View with many kawaii Christmas-themed items.
