J+I collection in Fuori Salone

We are showing new prototypes at a group exhibition named J+I - 6 Japanese female designers collaborate with Italian artisans.  Tomoko is in charge of J+I blog, to report factory visits and design developments.

“J+I” is a project between Italian traditional craftsman and 6 Japanese designers.

We... Kaori Shiina, Kazuyo Komoda, Kuniko Maeda, Sakura Adachi, Shinobu Ito and Tomoko Azumi, have been learning about the materials and characteristics of their techniques through conversation with skilled crafts people, in order to find our unique view points for this project.  We wish our Japanese approaches can result in a group of objects which are extending the market of the traditional crafts.

Our first collection, a result of collaboration with 13 Italian companies, will be launched at Sarpi Bridge, within the Oriental Design Week in FuoriSalone 2013.  Tomoko has been working with Riva1920 for their stool collection, as well as with Nason Moretti, a glass factory in Murano, for a set of drinking vessels.
