Urushi Design & Innovation by Taiichi Kirimoto & Kohei Kirimoto
設計與未來 桐本泰一 桐本滉平 漆展
Exhibition period 1.6 - 30.6.2019

 

Kirimoto Family in Wajima, Ishikawa prefecture of Japan, has been engaged in the lacquerware making for over 200 years since the late Edo Period. At the beginning of Showa era, the family started to specialize in carving wood materials of lacquerware.

來自石川縣輪島的桐本家族,傳承木漆工藝兩百年。從江戶時代晚期起,桐本家族已從事輪島漆器的事業,到了昭和時代初期,開始專攻漆器木材。

 

Taiichi Kirimoto succeeded the family business as the seventh generation. Before returning to Wajima, he majored in Industrial Design at the university and practised interior design. He resumed wood craftsmanship as he returned and started designing for lacquerware, furniture and architectural fixtures.

桐本泰一作為第七代家族事業的繼承人,在大學主修工業設計,亦從事過室內設計工作,最終回到了輪島。他從木藝學徒做起,其後為漆器、傢具和建築裝置進行創意設計。

 

The business is currently breaking out from the mould with a new contemporary range of goods that’s got everyone’s attention. Kohei Kirimoto, the son of Taiichi Kirimoto, and eighth-generation heir of the family, is the brand director of the new collection, “Iki“, inspired by human skin. “Iki” in Japanese means “breath“, “stylishness“, and “freshness“.

桐本家族銳意求新, 桐本滉平是桐本泰一的兒子,也是家族的第八代繼承人,他創立的新系列“Iki”,在日語中有「呼吸」、「時尚」、「新鮮」的意思,靈感來自皮膚。

 

This Exhibition Preview x Talk will explore the future of lacquer art (Urushi in Japanese), and its applications in products, interior and architectural designs.

今次導賞講座將會探討漆藝未來的去向,以及在產品丶建築和室內設計應用上的潛質。

About SOIL

Founded in 2012,  SOIL aims to promote crafts through the inspiring history, culture and humanity behind them.

 

We offer a new perspective and experience to traditional crafts. 

In collaborations with designers and craftsmen across different 

disciplines and cultures, we hope to create better craft designs exposed to alternative methods and materials. Collaboration spreads our design sphere of influence and breaks down walls with new approaches.

嘗試從歷史、人文和文化的角度,研究及推廣傳統手作設計,讓手工藝重回現代人的生活中。

我們連結不同領域、喜愛及深懂工藝的創作人和傳統匠人,

一同發想、一同設計,讓傳統工藝與現代設計互相對話和影響。
