Meanwhile, the character of the space is emphatically marked by the upper part of the ellipse. Wada Sports has acquired a significant collection of valuable rackets from all over the country. This collection includes wooden vintage rackets, rackets used by famous players, and some rackets miraculously rescued from the Great Tohoko Disaster in 2011. All of these are featured in a permanent exhibition taking place on the upper part of the elliptical shape. The rackets are displayed along the ellipse line, transforming the heart of this retail space into a museum of rackets.
The Racketectonics Archifixture is not only a way of celebrating Wada Sports 30th anniversary, but is a new conceptual metamorphosis of a commercial space into a hybrid museum transmitting the culture of racket sports to the next generations.
