2016/ Arita Porcelain
The Dutch design duo Scholten & Baijings, 2016/ Arita, Japanese architect Fumihiko Sano and kimono designer Hiroko Takahashi teamed up to present the 2016/ Edition of Arita porcelain. The presentation is part of the larger 2016/ project, which celebrates the four hundredth anniversary of Japanese Arita porcelain in the year 2016.
In 27 dishes Scholten & Baijings celebrate the beauty of four hundred years of Arita porcelain and demonstrate what a rich source of inspiration traditional Aritaware can offer. Almost every item is carefully handpainted with a high level of sensitivity in collaboration with Hataman Touen pottery.
Scholten & Baijings organized a series of ‘Tea Performances’. These 45-minute performances were conducted by Japanese Tea Master Soyu Mukai and held twice a day for up to three persons each.
