Tadao Ando does it Again! Kyoto Design House opens on Tominokoji Street

Recently opened on Kyoto’s beautiful Tominokoji Street, just below Oike, is an elegant, 4-story multi-purpose building designed by Pritzker-award winning architect, Tadao Ando.  Ando’s creation is the new location of one of my favorite stores: Kyoto Design House. This unique shop features contemporary crafts designed by 20 different designers and all made in Japan. Their collection of very unusual items, produced in small quantities,  include stationary products, household accessories, costume jewelry, fashion accessories and so much more. This is a great place to see what some of Kyoto’s brightest and most creative people are dreaming up behind paper doors.”

    Count us as fans of Kyoto Design House too. Their items are always exquisite and well worth the time to linger and look carefully and deeply at the craftsmanship. And as wonderful as the items is the way they are displayed. The Japanese long ago cornered the market on the best way to exhibit and display all works of art, not to mention their lighting skills too. Just one more stop to add to our list for the next Kyoto trip. Thanks, Steve!
