We started out at the Bastille Design Center in the 11th arrondissment. Our curiosity had been peaked by an exhibition called: Made in Japan - 365 days of Charming Everyday Things
This concept on the move had set up temporarily in a former hardware warehouse which in itself was worth visiting.
On three levels, 365 objects were presented and offered thanks to an exceptional scenography. We discovered the charms of Japan. Learned about objects, that convey the practical sense, the know-how and good Japanese taste. From the book mark to the bike, from a cup to a stool, from a sock to a plaid, from toothpicks to a cast iron pot… these objects are practical, simple, charming and unusual.
365 objects like 365 days in the year, so 365 possibilities of finding exactly what you want! From 2,5 € to 2000 €.
