インテリア展示会「Differences unite us 個性は我々を結び合う」 2022年11月30日(水)―12月2日(金) 11:00―19:00 駐日スペイン大使館B1階展示室 入場無料 東京都港区六本木1-3-29

In all good design, the form will not only be the result of the function, but it will also be the result of the historical moment, culture and tradition. The context is unique, changing and sometimes really complicated.

Japan and Spain, two apparently opposite countries with very different cultures and unique ways of understanding life whose design and architecture is a true reflection of two exceptional societies. But what if these differences are in fact the ones generating ideas? What if what really gives meaning to life is curiosity and diversity?

This exhibition tries to show what is behind Spanish design, guiding the viewers on a past, present and future journey through the customs, the habitual practices and the dreams to come. A tour that exposes how differences sometimes unite us.

There are those who feel comfortable in what is known, in what is similar, but those who reject what is established and open themselves to learning, will discover a new world of shapes and colours.

The Embassy of Spain and ICEX, under the brand Interiors from Spain, host one more year an exhibition on Spanish design, this time curated and designed by the Spanish architect Alberto García based in Tokyo and working for DE-SIGN INC.

Seminar: “Differences unite us”:

On December 2nd at 3 PM, at the Spanish Embassy, an interesting seminar will be held, in which designers and architects who are active both in Spain and Japan will talk about their experiences and collaborations with different cultures. Speakers: Alberto García, exhibition curator and architect (DE-SIGN INC); Natalia Sanz y Takeshi Yamamura, architects (YSLA Architects); Jin Kuramoto, designer (Jin Kuramoto Studio), Yuichiro Yamanaka , architect and designer (S.O.Y. Labo) and David Minton Albero & Gorka Beitia-Zarandona (Kengo Kuma & Associates). Previous registration is needed.
