“Sense of Nature” exhibition at Milan Design Week 2019
HULS held the first exhibition of KORAI in Europe titled “Sense of Nature” from 8th-14th April 2019 in Milan, Italy.
The exhibition was held at “Galleria Seno” in the center of the iconic Brera district in Milan during Milan Design Week. “Ren” which is a new art piece of the brand was revealed at the exhibition. It was produced through the collaboration between Hiroaki Usui, a woodworker from Kuroda Kobo Co., Ltd. and product designer Shizuka Tatsuno. The entire range of products from the brand were showcased in a special installation by space designer, Kazunori Matsumura to express the harmony of “nature and home” which prevails in the Japanese culture and is also based on “ryo” which means “coolness” in Japanese which is the concept of KORAI.
During the exhibition period we received more than 1,500 visitors, including locals and design industry professionals. The visitors were interested not only in the art pieces “Hydrangea- Water Vessel” and “Ren” but also in all the products that were showcased. It shows the high level of interest in Japanese crafts and product design in Milan.
