It’s no se­cret that Ja­pan has a proud her­itage of highly skilled crafts­man­ship. Now, Ja­pan Cre­ative is help­ing long-stand­ing lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ers part­ner with con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers to bring these crafts to the in­ter­na­tional stage. High­lights in­clude the ‘Store’ ( be­low) con­tainer col­lec­tion. A stun­ning ex­am­ple of Ja­panese min­i­mal­ism, Store is a re­sult of col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Sek­isaka Shikki and the Lon­don-based In­dus­trial Fa­cil­ity, and pays trib­ute to Echizen lac­quer­ware, a tra­di­tion that has its ori­gins 1,500 years ago in the Kawada district of Sabae city.
