M+ Gallery has recently opened its doors in trendy Aoyama. This minimalist showroom, with wood and iron furniture, white airy curtains and an uncluttered look showcases a careful edited collection of Japanese and European designers.
One of the items that caught my attention are the leather products of AMBEREBMA by Noriko Yoshii, which are designed in Netherlands and manufactured in Italy. These designs are classic but with a modern flair, paying careful attention to details and craftsmanship. おしゃれ!!!
Nature is celebrated in the organic accessories created by Dutch jewelry designer Jacomijn van der Donk. Every item is hand-made, therefore creating a unique piece of art. The designer says “I try to bring nature into the city and the everyday life, as a reminder of where we come from and what we need.” (Images below courtesy of M+).
The iron table exhibits beautiful jewelry… Materia Aspera is the brainchild of Italian silver craftsman Ettore Nizzotti. The literal translation is “rough material” and that’s the core of these designs: raw silver with organic shapes. The designer has found his inspiration roots in Japanese Raku pottery.
In a corner of M+, I found these beautiful clothes. Bulgarian fashion designer Dessislava Iavanova is behind “di+/diplus”. Using different materials, cut and production techniques, this label offers elegant and wearable designs.
You can also get “MOTHER” in M+, an Anglo-Japanese magazine with vanguard aesthetics featuring fashion, photography, art and architecture.
M+ is worth a browse.
