We are honored to have the opportunity to host this special exhibition. The event will coincide with Nalata Nalata’s pop-up shop opening in Manhattan, which will run up until Christmas with several design related events throughout the duration.
On November 15th, the pop-up shop will kickstart with an opening party for our first exhibition – entitled, YUKARI – organized in collaboration with Japanese design studios, Oji and Design and Asahikawa Woodworking. We will be exhibiting their new works at our temporary location and Oji Masanori himself will be our guest of honor for the event. This exhibition is focused around the idea of a product seen as a form of connection, or Yukari (a word used in Japan since ancient times). Yukari can be revealed through the relationships that exist between maker and designer, designer and user, and it can even create links between generations: past, present and future. On display will be a selection of contemporary housewares manufactured with traditional techniques.
The opening reception for Yukari is on Nov 15th at 7:30PM. There will also be a selection of sake from Sakaya NYC originating from the Hokkaido area in honor of the prefecture in which Asahikawa Woodworking is located. If you can’t make it on this night, the show will stay up through till Nov 17th. We hope to see you out for a wonderful evening of great design and sake! Come discover Yukari.
