JAPAN CREATIVE EXHIBITION
Kyukyodo + GamFratesi, TAKEYARI + Faye Toogood and SUWADA+ BIG-GAME
THE LITTA VARIATIONS / 4th Movement – Palazzo Litta, Corso Magenta 24, Milano
In collaboration with: Japan Creative
Japan Creative is a nonprofit organization that aims to make known to the world the new value of Japanese craftsmanship.
“We believe that the Japanese sense of beauty has been nurtured by a long-cherished tradition of craftsmanship. Our core activity is organizing collaborative projects that connect local Japanese manufactures with internationally established designers. These manufacturers each hold unique technologies, original ideas or work with materials rooted in tradition or locality. By reviewing from a multiple perspective the technologies and materials that are important assets for the future, we aim to rediscover and create new values in tune with the modern day lifestyle.”
This year, they present their latest projects: JC20 Kyukyodo (incense/Kyoto) with GamFratesi (Denmark), JC21 TAKEYARI (canvas/Okayama) with Faye Toogood (UK) and JC22 SUWADA (blacksmith/Niigata).
