Made in Japan: 100 New Products, Hardback Book

Description

'Made in Japan' is a simple phrase, but one full of meaning.

From kettles and cutlery to chairs, Japan creates some of the most innovative, elegant, whimsical and well-made objects in the world.

Combining high aesthetic standards with cutting-edge technology, many of these designs turn everyday items into functional works of art that would look as good in a museum as on a kitchen counter.

Made in Japan surveys 100 of the country's recent design triumphs, among them furnishings, utensils, gadgets, clothing, office equipment and even a silent guitar.

While the book features mainly mass-produced objects, it also includes one-off prototypes and limited-edition items that are immensely popular in Japan.

Created specifically for the Japanese consumer, these products reflect the way people live, work and play in a country that prizes highly both exceptional craftsmanship and industrial perfection.
