      Kenichi Takanaka “End Speed Limit”

      A special exhibition for painter, calligrapher and potter, Kenichi Takanaka, will be held at three A&S locations in Kyoto, Tokyo, and Fukuoka.

      Takanaka’s even is now an annual occasion special to Arts & Science. Kenichi Takanaka lives a semi-self-sufficient life with his beloved animals including as dogs, cats, pigs, and goats in the mountains. Based on his classical technique, his motifs drawn are free and expresses various themes such as scenes from every day life to his charismatic imaginary world of monsters on his ceramics and painting. This time, we also offer a special series of pouches and bags made in collaboration with Arts & Science. A special technique called inlay* is used for the illustration printing. We look forward your visit and sharing the pieces with you in person.

      *Inlay: A technique in which grooves are dug in the material and a plate-like insert is placed to create a pattern.


      “Last year, I heard from word of mouth that Mr. Shigeyuki Miyahara, owner of Rihaku, had passed away. Rihaku is a coffee shop in Jimbocho that was founded in 1952, and its appearance leaved a presence that was hard to forget. A few years ago, editor Kikuko Miyake passed away as well. A few days after her death, her body was found in a low-rent apartment for those on life insurance. In my thoughts, Miyake’s passing away was not a surprise and very much showed her character. What these two incidents have in common is that both of my beloved friends were known to have a keen eye for everything, but at the same time socially awkward and somewhat selfish. The personal impression my children, wife and I felt about them was their gentle and loveable personalities.
      "The number of older mentors and people who took care of me is getting smaller and smaller." I feel a kind of majestic flow in this. Now, in our family we have entered a rush of new births of our animals, and many little lives such as chickens and river fish are born. My wife is smiling every day while taking care of them. The other day, her young friend, violinist Atsuko Sahara, announced that she was pregnant. My wife and I were so gleeful to hear this positive news. I took an opportunity to speak to my wife about life and death. She said these words to me, “Because the birth of life is ever so moving, when it comes time for us to die, we should die in the same, proper way.”

      Masao Kozumi “Danjyu

      A solo exhibition featuring glass artist Masao Kozumi will be held at OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo from Friday, July 29th. We will introduce his new works including “Danjyu,” a traditional stacking box used for serving food, in glass. We will also showcase new works colored in "Kame-nozokiiro*,” a tone that belongs to the Japanese indigo color story. Kozumi’s classic transparent green pieces will also be available. The exhibition pieces will travel to Kyoto, HIN / Arts & Science, and A&S Fukuoka as well. We welcome you to come and visit the exhibition.

      The object “Danjyu
      This story begins with a 17th-century Japanese Biidoro* glass fragment excavated from the site of a magistrate's office in Nagasaki. The fragment was originally part of the side of a green-tinged danjyu. People who lived an affluent life in the Edo period likely enjoyed summer delicacies in biidoro danjyu as a way to cool down during the hot and humid summer months.
      This glass Danjyu, designed and produced by Masao Kozumi using the same mold-blown* technique of the era, expresses the Japanese people’s unchanged view of nature and the sentiment of coolness they still feel when they see glass that resembles the transparent elements of water and ice. The delicate and precise finish of the Danjyu, in which the lid and body are perfectly aligned, offers a glimpse of the artist’s high level of skill and years of experience.


      * Kame-nozokiiro (Japanese word for a pale aqua indigo) : The color of a cloth seen through an indigo-colored glass bottle. Also known to be the color of the sky reflected in the water inside a bottle, representing a very pale blue color of indigo dye.
      * Biidoro: The name of a mainstream type of glass in 17th-century Japan. Derived from Vido, which means glass in Portuguese.
      * Mold blowing: A technique of blowing glass into a mold made of metal or clay.

      Yumi Nakamura “Objects to boil water”

      HIN / Arts & Science is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by metalsmith Yumi Nakamura starting Friday, July 15. This is her first presentation at Arts & Science and features the kettle, the item that inspired her creative activities, as well as other pieces from Nakamura’s personal archive selection that have aged over time and through use.
      A tea ceremony by “Tsuki no on (Sound of the Moon),” Notsuki Watanabe will also be held during the event. We welcome you to come and enjoy two precious Taiwanese native teas carefully hand-picked using tools produced by Nakamura. The loose tea leaves will also be available for purchase. We look forward to your visit.

      【Reservation Updates】
      The first two days of this event and tea ceremony are now fully booked as of June 11th. From the 17th forward reservations appointments will be prioritized but not mandatory. In case of overcrowding there may be entry restrictions, or we may ask customers without reservations to wait in line.


      “Objects to boil water”
      I believe that the act of boiling water is a primitive activity.
      It also requires tools, but these go beyond simply being tools; they are symbols that represent the burning fire. They are objects to boil water in, something primitive, something simple, something that brings a sense of richness to life.
      For this presentation, I imagined the relationship between the kettle and the furnace, and how the act of boiling water can be done in various places: on the table, in the studio, in the kitchen, in the tea ceremony room, or even outdoors.
      I hope you enjoy the exhibition.

      PROFILE
      Yumi Nakamura / Metalsmith. Born in Saitama in 1981 and majored in interior design at Musashino Art University. She lived for three years in Tokoname, Aichi Prefecture, where she encountered and drew inspiration from the diverse regional craftwork. She returned to Tokyo in 2008, where she first began exploring metalwork while also working at a design studio. In 2012, she moved to Nara and set up her workshop, devoting herself full-time to the craft of metalwork. The beautiful shapes that she forms by heating, beating, and hammering a single sheet of metal belie their function as simple tools. Her pieces become more attractive with use, and, over time, will show the influence of the user’s hand.

      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.

      La sedia leggera di Chiavari | Pre-order event

      Chiavari is a small town on the coast of the Ligurian Sea in Italy. Since 2015, Arts & Science has introduced the La sedia leggera di Chiavari chairs, which have been produced in this area using almost exactly the same manufacturing method since the beginning of the 19th century. We will hold a pre-order event from Friday, May 27th starting in Tokyo and touring to Kyoto then Fukuoka. New arrivals will be presented, and this will be an opportunity to custom order from 5 styles and 7 variations of chairs.

      La sedia leggera di Chiavari chairs are made in a workshop with a small number of expert craftsmen. 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. These perfectly-crafted chairs are functional for everyday use, while the aesthetics enrich any interior space. You can also enjoy how the chairs age beautifully over time.

      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.

      The beginning of Spring is the perfect time to introduce Peter Ivy’s colorful new work, and we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy this rare opportunity to view works that are not included in our usual selection at the shops.

      Exhibition and sales event for IFUJI

      An exhibition and sales event for furniture brand IFUJI will be held at OVER THE COUNTER in Tokyo and HIN / Arts & Science in Kyoto.

      At this event, Arts & Science will introduce oval boxes and tableware such as the statement “Delmer” series and rim boxes, that were exclusively sold at our previous exhibitions. In addition, we plan to present new items including the launch of the new toilet paper box and the Italian round tray for the first time.

      “IFUJI” carpentry is individually carved from large pieces of wood and carefully hand-finished. Their ideology lies in the idea of proposals of functional items that are necessary in an everyday lifestyle. We wish you to take this opportunity to see IFUJI’s masterpiece oval boxes and feel the essence of their quality handiwork in person.
