Japan is comprised of 47 prefectures, each with their own unique tradition of food and craft. And thanks to a new exhibition at the d47 Museum you can now get a flavor for design from across Japan under a single roof. Lined throughout the Design Bussan 2014 exhibition space are 47 tables that – you guessed it – represent each prefecture. And on display are carefully selected prime examples of both traditional craft but also craft that’s been merged with contemporary design. The result is an all-encompassing view of how Japanese design sensibilities are evolving.
The exhibition, curated by D&DEPARTMENT Inc.’s president Kenmei Nagaoka, runs through October 19, 2014. It’s located on the 8th floor of the Hikarie department store in Shibuya.
