Japan, Tradition and innovation.
Japan. The long passage of time has made for a unique history and culture here. Spring, summer, fall, winter, all transition distinctly; a culture of craftsmanship continuing for hundreds of years amongst this rich natural beauty.
Japan. Bleeding-edge technology is born here. Innovation in the industries of electronics, automobiles, and robotics make Japan a world leader.
In the Metropolis of Tokyo, it is unbelievably advanced. Be it from the automated features of the city; the latest fashions, creations, and technologies; or pop culture including manga, one one cannot help but be filled with excitement and surprise.
In the ancient capital of Kyoto, surrounded by an amazing atmosphere that makes palpable tradition and culture, one finds himself moved. Hospitality; the face of the city that changes with the seasons; the beauty of a traditional cityscape centered around temples and shrines; and traditional arts, entertainment, and spirituality are all born of a seemingly eternal history.
The coexistence of tradition and innovation is one of Japan’s unique points. It could be said that it forms Japan’s identity.
The Contemporary Japanese Design Project.
We want to merge Japanese tradition and innovation and make more global and exciting creations. The Contemporary Japanese Design Project (CJD-P) was begun with this concept in mind. We gathered 15 companies; manufacturers and craftsmen with excellent proprietary techniques from various places around Japan. We built a wide network of experienced advisors and distributors from France, Germany, and China. We married producers with six German and French designers, all overflowing with talent. Under the conceptual banner of “tradition is continuing innovation,” the CJD-P started in 2014 as an international project with the support of the Japanese government.
Japanese craftsmen and manufacturers and the international advisors and designers all met in Japan and shared a variety of experiences and emotions. In February of 2015, after a full year of hard effort, the crystallization of this creative work will be unveiled in the worlds largest trade fair, Frankfurt Ambiente. We will introduce beautifully innovative and functional products, the likes of which have never been seen before.
Please have a look at the creativity and sure skill of the CJD-P Team.
