Kyo Project

A partnership between Maison&Objet and a consortium of Singaporean design firms, the Kyo (meaning ‘today’ in Japanese) project takes on the endangered craft traditions of Japan. Working with artisans who carry the skills of the generations before them, the project hopes to enable the continued narrative of  heritage through the sustained craft traditions of the communities. Here, we we offer the full photo essay of the enlightening and heartwarming week-long trip.
