Next project Capsule Eyewear Collection Previous project BBJ Private Aircraft Interior

The Tohoku region, devastated by the March 11th disaster, has always been known for its rich history of craftsmanship. This project is an effort to shine a light on the Tohoku region and its art of traditional craftsmanship, which is now in danger of disappearing.

The project brings together many award-winning craftsmen and their work, culminating in one fine piece of artwork known as ‘katana’, a traditional Japanese sword, reviving the extravagance and luxury of this ancient craft whilst giving the local craftsmen and manufacturers of Tohoku an opportunity to present their skills and technologies to the global market.
