KUMU in Japan means connecting one place with another while embracing each other’s culture and community.
Kumu is an idea that stems from our desire to integrate Japanese crafts and design into our lifestyles. Good designs should be practical, honest, beautiful and improve our everyday lives. On display will be a selection of items for the home that do just that, integrates into a contemporary lifestyle and makes it better.
We’re thrilled to be welcoming Oji Masonori and friends to NYC for the second time and can’t wait to showcase their beautiful designs at Nalata Nalata. We are also excited to be launching Oji and Design’s latest sake wares designed for the time honored porcelain studio, Jicon, from Arita. In addition, designers Daisuke Tsumanuma and Kenichi Yamada from 10¹² Terra will be in attendance to introduce their full line of vases and terrariums including the launch of their new ‘Showcase Long’ series for dried flowers.
The three-day exhibition will begin with an opening reception and sake tasting event on January 23rd. Meet the designers behind some of our favorite products while trying a selection of sake from Oji Masanori’s new designs.
