Annual Atrium Special Project complimented by various themed showcases
One of the highlights of Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is the annual Atrium Special Project, aptly titled 'New Local.' This unique showcase brings together regionally rooted products born from the fusion of innovative design with technology, culture, and materials from Japan and beyond. Promising ‘an enriching experience for all attendees’, renowned architect and designer Mr Keiji Ashizawa is once again spearheading the project.

Among the themed showcases, 'Ishinomaki Kobo's Challenge: Designs that Create New Value' will present new designs for the future, with the seminar underscoring Ishinomaki Kobo’s 10-year anniversary, and the company’s embarking on a new partnership with Karimoku Furniture. With inspiration found further from home, 'Italian Design Day 2024' pays homage to the pioneering work of designer and architect Gio Ponti, offering insights into the foundations of Italian design.

Complementing these showcases are a series of engaging fringe events, including 'Meet Design,' aimed at fostering business-friendly collaboration across various industries, and 'GATHE:RING,' featuring interactive workshops on manufacturing backgrounds, paired with networking and tasting opportunities. GATHE:RING promises to be a vibrant addition to the event, providing a unique, social opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to connect.

Both at the fringe programme and across the show floor, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is poised to be an important platform for anyone passionate professional who is interested in interior design and the future of the lifestyle market. Further updates will be announced as the event draws near.
