The term “mingei” (folk craft) celebrates the charm to be found in everyday hand-made objects. Coined by designer-philosopher Soetsu Yanagi in 1926, mingei believes that a beautiful life can begin with the objects we use day-to-day. Craft meets philosophy in this visual feast of interior inspiration which brings together over 100 items of clothing, furniture and homewares, including a “future mingei style” room presented by “Mogi” duo Terry Ellis and Keiko Kitamura, owners of Mogi Folk Art in Koenji.
