When we visited one of the islands in Hawaii, we came across a "general store". It was very local and community-based, which we rarely saw in Los Angeles. Nowadays with big chain stores spread in the cities, you can get decent variety of products with decent service anywhere you go. But when we walked into the small "general store" we felt a very friendly, established presence in its local community. In the "general store", their products were what was minimum required in daily life. Less variety of what big chain stores carried. But we felt that was just enough.

PingMag - The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things” » Archive » Masaru Tatsuki’s Decotora Photo Op

by sbrothier
On a dark and rainy night, bright and blinding lights approach a vacant lot, off a Japanese highway - just if Shibuya’s blinking neon signs decided to move themselves past you… However, it’s some proud and lonely trucker halting for a rest! Welcome to the world of Decotora, short for decorated trucks!

Studio and Garden: Serizawa Keisuke and Textile Design

by sbrothier
Another of the exciting shows I saw while on my recent trip to NYC was a survey of the textile works of Serizawa Keisuke (1895-1984) at Japan Society, a Japanese designer who took his inspiration from the traditional techniques of stencil dyeing. This kimono was stunning in its color harmonies and surprising shapes. There were others just as dramatically beautiful. Some of the most startling designs were on Noren, or entrance curtains, their shapes strong and simple.

Serizawa at the Japan Society Museum- artnet Magazine

by sbrothier
I had the good fortune to tour the comprehensive survey of works by textile master Serizawa Keisuke at the Japan Society, curated with admirable rigor by the society's gallery director Joe Earle, with two formidable blondes, Alexandra Peers of the Wall Street Journal and Alice Judelson of I-20 Gallery. As Peers commented, using an old journalistic term, "They buried the lede," by putting the jewels of the exhibition, Serizawa's incomparable kimonos from the 1960s, in a back room of the gallery, where you might miss them.

Architecture éternelle du Japon | Architecture éternelle du Japon - Librairie FATON

by sbrothier
L’architecture japonaise est enchanteresse : harmonie entre jardins et bâtisses, élégance des styles, raffinement des déco­rations, perfection des détails… L’envoûtement s’opère à son apparente fragilité qui fait naître un sentiment d’impermanence. Le message délivré est saisissant : racontant l’éphémère, cette architecture nargue les siècles d’un éternel éclat.

Les routes mythiques d'échappées belles Japon la route des cerisiers en fleurs Gratuit jusqu'au 16/10 Prendre la route au Japon, pour un étranger, est une chose assez rare. Ce fut impossible durant des siècles où le pays, s'étant refermé sur lui-même, se préservait de tout contact, de toute influence du reste du monde. La route mythique empruntée ici pour traverser le Japon du sud au nord, est une pure découverte. Le plus grand mythe de cette route est peut-être celui du mariage de la tradition et de la modernité. C'est un grand écart que permettent les mythes de la création polythéiste du Japon. Ici, on peut tout imaginer : la poésie du vol d'un pétale de cerisier, comme l'ultra-réalisme du moment où l'homo japonicus aura créé un robot à son image.
