Keita Takahashi’s groundbreaking video game Katamari Damacy is on show until November 5th at the New York Museum of Modern Art as part of the Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000 exhibition.

Keita Takahashi, a trained sculptor and designer, got international renown when he created the unique videogame Katamari Damacy for PlayStation 2. The game revolves around a diminutive prince on a mission to rebuild the stars, constellations and Moon, which were accidentally destroyed by his abusive father, the King of All Cosmos. This is achieved by rolling a magical, highly adhesive ball called a katamari around various locations, collecting increasingly larger objects, ranging from thumbtacks to people to mountains, until the ball has grown great enough to become a star. The game was praised by critics upon its release and was the first game that received a Good Design Award in Japan.

Cook & Becker currently sells unique limited-edition baby bodysuits designed by Keita Takahashi, which can be bought here.
