POP UP Lab & Shop
of traditional Kyoto products
in Amsterdam

 As the old capital where Japanese emperors resided for more than a thousand years, Kyoto is one of the ultimate cultural centers of Japan and still a home to many companies making diverse traditional products with amazing techniques. From 15 September 2016 to 31 March 2017, high quality products made by nine of such companies from Kyoto will be exhibited and sold at MAKER KAMER in Amsterdam.
 
MAKER KAMER is a place where the traditional products from Kyoto and Dutch creativity meet. Creators from Japan and Holland are encouraged to exchange their thoughts to learn from each other and be inspired. During the exhibition period, many workshops and events will be organized to create new opportunities for people, things, techniques and ideas to interact!
 
With the aim to create something new with Japanese high standard techniques, the project provides opportunities for Japanese creators to interact with MAKER KAMER visitors to understand and be inspired by the Dutch and European lifestyles and tastes. The short-term goal of the project is to present all the feedback at MONO JAPAN, a trade fair and a cultural event for Japanese products, which will be held in February 2017 in Amsterdam. The feedback will then be used as a reference to create new products in the future.

文化と芸術の中心地として大いに栄えた京都。そこでは今もなお、多様な伝統工芸やモノづくりを愛する企業(メーカー)が数多く存在しています。
そんな京都のメーカー9社のプロダクトが、この秋、アムステルダムにやってきます。
 
京都の伝統的なプロダクトとオランダ人の創造力が出会う場所。モノづくりを愛する人々が語らい、学び合い、刺激を与え合う場所。「MAKER KAMER(作り手の部屋)」は9月15日から来年3月末までの期間中、たくさんのワークショップやイベントの開催を通して、人、モノ、技術、そしてアイデアが交差する新しい機会を生み出していきます!
 
オランダのクリエーターたちと出会い、ヨーロッパの人々のライフスタイルやテイストを知りたい!そこから生まれた新しいひらめきを確かな技術力で形にしたい!そんな熱い想いを胸に、プロジェクト「MAKER KAMER」は動き始めます。
