Using the same criteria as the competition, the principle idea was to incorporate the human form and origami as elements to form a secondary form with a mix of facial features and the animal kingdom. Without wanting to be so specific to eliminate the imagination of the viewer, one might see a face, a crab, spider, mask as well as the duet of two human forms in athletic dance.
Key concepts to incorporate into
the creation of the design were :
"The power of sport"
"Japonese-ness and Tokyo-ness"
"Personal Best and Utmost Efforts"
"Sense of Unity and Inclusion"
the Power to Rise Up"
