    r a s a i 2022 Summer Collection Pop-up

    Based in India, asiam studio, which designs, dyes and sews fabrics and is renowned for their quality and consideration of the local people and the environment, presents ‘r a s a i ‘. Arts & Science is one of the few stores in the world that has presented ‘r a s a i ‘ from their first collection.
    From July 1st, we will be launching the new collection at A&S Aoyama, Marunouchi, and Kyoto. As a preview, A&S Fukuoka, our newest brick-and-mortar shop, will be the first to hold a pop-up event from Friday, June 24th. During the event, the entire collection on offer from Arts & Science this season will be on display at the Fukuoka location.


    Founded in India in 1996 by two partners, asiam studio is a company that handles the entire production process of creating soft furnishings and clothing, from design and dyeing to sewing, and has collaborated mainly with established European brands. From 2018, the founder-designer started the process of renewing and developing the ‘r a s a i ‘ label, which was the starting point of the company, and since 2021, the founder-designer has proceeded with plans to create a new company, asiam studio living, to focus on various activities such as creating limited edition products and developing concepts. asiam studio’s goals include producing items with a universal appeal that enrich the lives of users. The conscious use of the back side of the fabric as a reversible factor is always calculated in their design, and the possibilities of design are never bound by age, gender, or size.

    For the 2022 Spring/Summer r a s a i collection, we will introduce new items from the main collection along with special items made specifically for Arts & Science and reflecting A&S’s requests. These items for A&S are the result of detailed adjustments in fabric selection, stitch positions, and dye tones. The colorful items include jackets and coats made of Woven Checks, a colorful checked fabric, and reversible jackets, blouses, and dresses made of Mulmul, a classic lightweight fabric.

    Woven Checks
    This fabric was one of the designer’s custom-woven projects that had been kept carefully aside until the right opportunity appeared to develop items for a limited-edition series. Currently, it is not easy to manufacture high-quality, hand-woven fabrics in a multicolor check due to the increasing demand for khadi, a traditional cloth of the region. The unique texture of hand weaving and the expression of r a s a i’s standard sewing machine stitching are characteristic of this product, which is finished entirely by hand sewing. To develop this limited-edition collection, Arts & Science has selected four types of fabrics and styles from r a s a i ’s sample collection.

    Mulmul
    The Indian bed quilt “Razai” is the origin of the brand name, ‘r a s a i.’ The cotton wadding is gently wrapped in a cotton fabric called Mulmul and hand-sewn. Mulmul has historically been woven by the most highly skilled weavers in India. Also called, “woven wind,” this is an ultra-thin, soft and translucent cotton fabric with excellent breathability. Nowadays, the technique is close to becoming lost as power looms have taken over the majority of production in India, and this special attention and skill are not required when sewing in the modern way. In this r a s a i collection, in addition to the standard double-layered pants and underdresses, special items made only for A&S were created through fine adjustments including customized stitch placements, patterns, color dye selection and color combinations.

    PROFILE
    ‘r a s a i’ is a line of clothing & home items. The brand name and concept is inspired by soft hand-stitched bed quilts treasured in India during winter months. ‘r a s a i’ embraces an adaptable style for all ages, body types, genders and cultures characterized by the reversible nature of the quilts, and their items often utilize both sides of the fabric in the collection’s design. Their items age gracefully over time. Arts & Science continues to present various categories of items from the ‘r a s a i’ collection in a seasonless cycle.

New arrivals will be presented, and this will be an opportunity to custom order from 5 styles and 7 variations of chairs.

Craftsmanship is seen in every step of the process from carving, assembling, weaving the seat, and painting, and the frame is made of high-quality wood sourced locally in Italy. The main features of the chairs are their beautiful form and surprisingly light weight, with the lightest model weighing about 2.9 kg, easy for anyone to move.

    At this event, we will introduce a total of 5 styles and 7 variations of chairs. The newest feature is the one-seated armchair. Amongst the styles, you will be able to customize the material, paint, finish, and seat specifications for the model of your choice.

    TENTHOUSANDTHINGS Trunk Show 2022

    Jewelry brand, TENTHOUSANDTHINGS has been chosen as one of 21 designers for Brilliant & Black: A jewelry Renaissance exhibition by Sotheby’s. The brand has also actively collaborated on presentations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. We are honored to present new pieces from TENTHOUSANDTHINGS especially selected for Arts & Science at A&S Marunouchi, Aoyama and Fukuoka from Friday, May 20th until the end of August.

    Arts & Science has presented various events in collaboration with TENTHOUSANDTHINGS by Ron Anderson and David Rees. At this trunk show, a number of unique jewelry shapes, including a customized variation of chandelier earring from the Sotheby's exhibition and rings using rare stones will be shared. The trunk show will tour 3 A&S stores with various pieces to fit the aesthetic of each location.

    David Rees remarks the sources and inspirations of creating “beautiful things” at TENTHOUSANDTHINGS are the combinations of “raw materials” and “manufacturing techniques.” The philosophy is to express the beauty in jewelry without suppressing the natural features of the stones and metals - their original beauty. "With exciting and quality materials, we feel the value will not diminish, and we hope that translates to the end-user. Our jewelry adds “value” to the wearer. The designers share, “our creations are unique beautiful pieces always with a distinct statement, an originality, the concept being true to the material yet always unusual and special.”

    Judy Geib Plus Alpha Trunk Show “Stardust Constellation”

    We are pleased to announce our annual trunk show by New York jewelry brand, Judy Geib Plus Alpha, starting May 20th at A&S Aoyama.

    Geib focuses most on her free handmade expressions. She combines different techniques intricating her high skills as a jeweler. She explains the concept of her work which is "commercial but still handmade. It’s not gallery jewelry". She wishes for many people to have access to her jewelry and the pieces to be worn in every day scenes. <Stardust constellation> is a selection of one-of-a-kind new pieces exclusively shown in Japan at Arts & Science. We invite you to see this array of new jewelry at this special occasion.


    Stardust Constellation
    “Ancient civilizations built their entire worlds around trying to understand the mysteries of the universe. For me, living in a city where I can only rarely see the stars, there is still an allure to finding where is my place, even if it is just calling to mind the idea of infinity every now and then. So, using materials from outer space (everything is from outer space!) and evoking the sparkle of the night sky, I’m searching too.”
     
    ― Judy Geib

    An exhibition by glass artist Peter Ivy will be held at three Arts & Science locations in Tokyo, Kyoto and Fukuoka. “Positive Space” will be unveiled for the first time at this exhibition. We invite you to come and see Ivy’s new series of works, which represent a new and very distinct take on glassware compared to the artist’s existing style.

    In preparation for our special presentation, Ivy said that he made many new and different attempts. “Positive Space” is one result of his great efforts and presents a series of vases born out of his intense research on material and repeated experimentation. Together with “Positive Space,” there will be a lineup of his traditional grey glassware. Please enjoy the contrast of colors. In addition, a new item Ojyu (a Japanese-style stackable bento box) will also be presented.

We introduce various styles of works from “ms.garden,” newly presented at her shop factory zoomer last year. Other series will also be available. We welcome you to come and see a full lineup of Tsuji’s expertise.

    “ms. garden” was born from the artist's desire to create items which lift your heart and mood, while we go through the difficulties of the pandemic. She wanted to portray the closer organic relationship we have to nature now, spending more time at home. This series of glassware depicts plants and butterflies with cuts and enamel on the glass surface with a new milky white glass.
    We wish you to please come and visit our first exhibition held in 2022. We look forward to seeing you there.


    Sunny & Cloudy
    “‘Life has its sunshine and its rain, its days and its nights its peaks and its valleys.’ - This are words from a Snoopy comic strip that I loved to ready in bed when I was little. The saying means, if you are alive, there will be the fun days and hard days. I mean, I've been told this kind of thing many times, and I know it, but in the pandemic I've kind of come back to this very common saying.
    A sudden shift was how the pandemic affected me. I was always looking toward the outer world. At the beginning for a while, I was at a lost in it all, but in the second year I found various discoveries and enjoyments in my days of walking around my home, the workshop, and the fields and paths around my neighborhood. I realized that weeds will grow quickly when left alone, hydrangeas grow taller and taller day to day, and white butterflies that dance amongst the cabbage fields show me a familiar scene every same time of the year. These two years have completely reestablished how human society and I believe has created some change in some good ways. I wrote on the glass the very personal feelings I found and felt in my daily life, through the weather, the plants in the garden and the animals I meet. It was an unfamiliar form of my own production, and will be kept as good record for myself and the life we are living right now. If I know many people can empathize with my current creations, that is more happiness than I imagine for these results of my new series of works.
    It will be sunny, partly cloudy and later on a little rainy today.

    Fukuoka arrival: Pots from Steve Harrison

    *Reservations are required for this event. Please see below on how to make your reservation.

    New 2021 pots by Steve Harrison have arrived from England. These works will be introduced at Arts & Science Fukuoka from January 7th (Friday) to January 16th (Sunday), 2022. Harrison’s work, which has been introduced in Japan by Arts & Science with great care since its opening in 2003, will be available in the Fukuoka area to see in person for the very first time.

    Steve Harrison's often uses the traditional method of pottery - Salt Glazing. As the salt is sprayed onto the pots while they are firing in the kiln, the chemical reaction between the salt and glaze creates organic patterns on the surfaces. The interesting part of this process is not knowing the final outcome of the pots until the kiln is opened. Steve Harrison has fascinated many people with this technique. While the pots are a classical western style, Steve Harrison’s original characteristics show strongly in this handmade process. Arts & Science has been working with Harrison for 18 years. We continue to receive his very best works several times a year in Japan, and we have always shared a special exhibition of his works every two years. Sometimes, like〈BIG IN JAPAN〉, creative director Sonya Park proposes a unique theme together with Harrison. Please also see our history of publishments we have produced and explore our history of working together. (Steve Harrison’s series of books are available on our A&S ONLINE SELLER

    The new arrival of pots at Fukuoka are mainly works Harrison has created in 2021. All of his pots are marked with the year of production, which represents his identity along with his other hallmark stamps. He has chosen himself his best work available including items such as cups, teapots, and bowls made in salt glaze of various colors and sizes. Although at times Harrison will make special items with a certain theme or concept for Japan, his basic concept is defined by pots that can be enjoyed in your daily lifestyle which do not always cause for a special occasion. We welcome you to take a look at this new collection of pots created especially for Arts & Science. We look forward to your visit.


    Arts & Science collection
    “Familiar forms, like teapots, lidded jars, jugs, bowls and cups stand to remind me of who I am as a potter. I often have adventures where I explore different artistic ideas however, I always return to these utilitarian pots. They remind me that ceremony and special occasions don’t need to be reserved for this kind of work. I feel that they imbue everyday living and enrich the moment. This is more poignant in pandemic times where we need to recognize and celebrate the ordinary because it is difficult to search out the extraordinary.
    This small collection of work for A&S is a true reflection of this idea.

    — Steve Harrison
