Psychic VR Lab, in collaboration with PARCO, Loftwork Pioneer the design of new expression and experiences of 3D space utilizing STYLY

Started experiment project / community "NEW VIEW"

Psychic VR Lab (Head office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Yamaguchi) which provides VR creative platform "STYLY (http://styly.cc)", in collaboration with PARCO (Tokyo Toshima), and Loftwork (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), started an experiment project / community "NEW VIEW" to exploit the design of new expression and experiences in3D space. On January 22, they published the web site (https://newview.design/).

Tag line of NEW VIEW is, “DESIGN YOUR ULTRA EXPERIENCE” (= Design super experience!). With the development of technology, the world of expression will head to the rich area of 3D leading from two dimensional to the real world. For near future, this attempt aims to pursue new expressions and discover and to nurture the next generation creators.

NEWVIEW is designing spaces and experiences by expanding the field of expression to 3D by creators who embody culture in various fields such as fashion, music, video, graphics, and illustrations. They’re setting up experiments to create the next generation culture experience (super experience) that freely moves between real space and creative space.
