Keisuke Iwata Michiko Iwata Kouichi Uchida Mitsugu Sato

Furniture exhibition by artists


We asked four artists who usually do interesting work to make furniture.


Keisuke Iwata and Kouichi Uchida are ceramic artists, Michiko Iwata is a sculptor, and Mitsugu Sato is a contemporary artist.I usually work on works with different stances.

Furniture that we see and touch as something tangible in our daily lives.


If it were them, what kind of sensibility, what kind of perspective, what kind of things would they produce?

This is an exhibition that was completed with such excitement.


The world is on summer vacation. I still can't go against my childhood memories. At this time of year, a strange playfulness appears on the face.

And just as I thought... No, more unique works than I imagined lined up in this "house"!


Above all, you can tell that the artists who are creating it are having fun.

Everyone who attended this precious opportunity, a great accomplice of the times, too.


Please love, touch, and sometimes sit.
