Taiwanese crafts set off for Tokyo interior design fair
Ten outstanding Taiwan brands will present 33 sets of exquisite crafts at Japan’s high-end design fair Interior Lifestyle Tokyo from June 14 through 16.
Organized by the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute (NTCRI), the Taiwan Pavilion will create a warm and cozy ambience to showcase the latest designs and interior products for home.
This year, Taiwan will be represented by such brands as HEE Porcelain (二喜設計有限公司), Evergreen Bamboo (竹采藝品有限公司), A.M IDEAS (凌晨工作室), Gridesign Studio (格子設計有限公司), Watersource Cultural and Educational Foundation (水源地文教基金會), Danzo Studio (蛋造設計有限公司), Hey Sheng Chi Si (黑生起司), and Motor Design Group (穆德設計團隊有限公司).
The 33 Taiwan-made sets, which deftly integrate lifestyle concepts with modern aesthetics and traditional Taiwan culture, include indigo-dyed placemats, ceramic tea sets, vessels inspired by traditional iron window embellishments, a lamp woven with rush and clay, and bamboo homeware products.
In addition, NTCRI will invite Tokyo-based industrial designer Kazushige Miyake (三宅一成) to share how he incorporates art and design with everyday life and exchange ideas with audiences at the Taiwan Pavilion.
Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is an annual trade fair held every summer at Tokyo Big Sight. As a leading trade fair for the high-end interior design market, it reflects the latest market trends and lifestyle concepts through its selection of crafts, accessories, arts, apparel, home electronics, and food.
To help Taiwan brands enter overseas markets, NTCRI has annually led delegations to participate in the Tokyo-based trade fair for eight consecutive years.
