MAISON is organised by the design studio, Teruhiro Yanagihara / Studio based in Osaka. It acts as a stage upon which global artists, designers and craftsmen will be drawn together in a creative environment. This project will be hosted in the Dobuike-seni-kaikan building, a structure of modern architectural design hailing from the Taisho Era (1912-1926) and located in downtown Osaka. Rather than merely existing as an exhibition and sales space alone, the venue will also be used for a range of new initiatives centred around the concept of ‘POST CRAFTS’, allowing for a wider exploration of creatives, crafts and industries from all over the globe.
