This week, we are excited to share with you an unparalleled exhibition event coming up at the end of January. Felissimo Design House in Midtown Manhattan will be transformed into a rich showcase of Japanese craft traditions. From textiles to the culinary arts, Japan’s artisans have always demanded perfection and from this tradition now emerges the modern innovation of the Japan Brand: Unfolding exhibition, showing from January 25th through February 7th.

This two-week event will highlight contemporary products from 30 Japanese regions represented by their respected chamber of commerce. Each region’s artisanship reflects the practice of century-old craft combined with a new approach of contemporary expression. This showcase details the success of the evolution of Japanese design through laquerware, sideboards, hand woven textiles and more. Japan Brand: Unfolding will reveal how Japan is creating new traditions through the artistic mastery and expertise of old ones.

If you can’t wait til the 25th, we’ve got a sneak preview to tempt your cultural palette.
