POP UP Lab & Shop
of Kyoto traditional products
in Amsterdam

As the old capital where Japanese emperors resided for more than a thousand years, Kyoto is one of the ultimate cultural centers of Japan and still a home to many companies making diverse traditional products with amazing techniques. From 15 September 2016 to 31 March 2017, high quality products made by nine of such companies from Kyoto will be exhibited and sold at MAKER KAMER in Amsterdam.

MAKER KAMER is a place where the traditional products from Kyoto and Dutch creativity meet. Creators from Japan and Holland are encouraged to exchange their thoughts to learn from each other and be inspired. During the exhibition period, many workshops and events will be organized to create new opportunities for people, things, techniques and ideas to interact!

With the aim to create something new with Japanese high standard techniques, the project provides opportunities for Japanese creators to interact with MAKER KAMER visitors to understand and be inspired by the Dutch and European lifestyles and tastes. The short-term goal of the project is to present all the feedback at MONO JAPAN, a trade fair and a cultural event for Japanese products, which will be held in February 2017 in Amsterdam. The feedback will then be used as a reference to create new products in the future.

The opening reception will be held on Thursday, 15th September 2016, from 18:00. Please see details from HERE.
