a talk in Tokyo

Tuesday 23 October 2012 Seminar & Workshop




詳細はTide Tableにアップされています。


Tomoko is giving a talk in Tokyo at DesignTide Table - one of a series of talks and discussions.

Makoto Orisaki is a designer and inventor of Or-ita, a cutting tool to make three-dimensional creations in corrugated cardboard.

The title of this talk+discussion is 'Reinstatement of Hands' - we are trying to seek out the designers role in this post mass-production society.  We are talking in Japanese unfortunately - you'd better to bring your friend to whisper you translation - but if you ask a question in English, I am able to answer in English!

date & time: 4 November 2012, 6pm
venue: Tide Table, a corner of Tide Exhibition
address: Tokyo Midtown Hall A&B,  9-7-2 Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tokyo

Monmaya+ launch

Monday 22 October 2012 Launch & Exhibition

At Tokyo Design Week, starting from 31 October 2012, we are taking part in a brand and furniture launch of Monmaya+.

デザインタイドのメイン会場「Tide Exhibition」で発表になる仙台簞笥の老舗、門間屋さんの新ブランド『Monmaya+』に参加します。

'Monmaya+' is a new brand of Monmaya, a traditional family run cabinet maker from Sendai - where the Tohoku earthquake and Tsunami hit in March 2011.  Their specialty has been traditional Urushi lacquered chests of drawers with metal fittings.  Our mission is to update their products for contemporary life style and introduce them to a wider audience who would appreciate the quality of their Urushi ( japan ) lacquer finish.

Together with Hiroko Takahashi, who is a textile & graphic designer and artist, we designed a console table for a hallway and a low table for a living room.  The drawers are lined with traditional paulownia wood, to protect your precious garments from moth and damp.

The brand and products launch is held at DesignTide Tokyo - heart of the Tokyo Design Week exhibitions.
