HBL Events: Jaime Hayon X Kamide Choemon-gama

Tuesday, 16 November 2010

In the first in a series WGSN takes a closer look at some of our favourite designers seen at Design Tide Tokyo and Tokyo design week this year.

Jaime Hayon teamed up with Kamide Choemon-gama to combine traditional Japanese craftsmanship with Hayon’s creative vision to create beautiful Japanese ceramics with a Spanish twist. Hayons journey in Japan began by exploring Japanese traditions and culture through, many tea ceremonies, Kabuki theatre and visiting fish markets. They then worked closely together to create a collection they could both be proud of.
