【Ryukobo】 “MUSUBI” Lighting with Tightly Braided “Kumihimo” – Exhibition Information
A new product that fuses tradition and modernity is now on display.
For more than 130 years, Ryukobo has been handing downkumihimo(braided cord) by craftsmen from generation to generation. It has not only been producing small ornamental items for kimonos such as obijime (decorative string used to hold a kimono sash in place), but has also been looking into new possibilities ofkumihimoby attempting to decorate stores for overseas maisons using kumihimo.
And now, a new product, kumihimo lighting, has been completed, and it will be exhibited from October 22 (Fri.) to 29 (Fri.).
In collaboration with STUDIO ROW, a design studio based in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo, “MUSUBI” is a bold and luxurious lighting using tightly braidedkumihimo, brass, and custom-made frosted glass, combining the studio’s philosophy of “discovering new values of materials by combining different things” and the meaning of “connecting fate” and “connecting people” contained in a piece of kumihimo.
We hope you will take this opportunity to come and see it.
