REAL JAPAN / Lacquerware crafts

REAL JAPAN
REAL JAPAN

Urushi (=Japanese lacquerware) is an excellent craft with the highest degree of precision, beauty, materials and technique.
Our ultimate Urushi Design Collection is designed by the best designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Dieter Rams, Fritz Frenkler, Enzo Mari and made by the best craftsmen with the highest traditional techniques and using the highest materials.
The REAL JAPAN Collection has been highly praised and respected at international exhibitions in Pinakothek der Moderne, Museum Angewandte Kunst and other well-known art museums in EU.
The best lacquerware does not do our life usefully, however, it makes our life spiritually rich.
