The exhibition representing japanese local utensils through ”DaiNihon-Ichi” at the Interior Life Style Tokyo 2013

”DaiNihon-Ichi”is a platform which introduces local unknown, household products in to the marketplace. The products are selected as part of a concept to rediscover local utensils, as a way of “Encouraging Japan by power of unseen traditional craftsmanship”. This scheme is similar to the Mingei, the Japanese folk art movement from the late 1920s and 1930s in Japan.

Yusuke was in charge of designing the space for the ”DaiNihon-Ichi” exhibition at the Interior Life Style Tokyo 2013, based in the Tokyo Big Sight Hall. Twenty brands are exhibited by the client Nakagawa -Masakichi-Shoten on a 300m2 scale site.

Yusuke Seki


Yusuke Seki are Japan based Design team.

Their approach to design challenges is to conceptualise and revaluate into irreplaceable design with new interpretations. His designs embrace simplicity and minimalism at first glance and his inspiration comes directly from aspects which already exist within the context: such as materials, location, histories; all gathered and represented through the formal design approach. The function is essential in his design but through his work he focuses on facts and phenomena from the environment, including the essential design methods from the past, passed through to the future.
