Park Tower Building in Shinjuku
For the first time, the Hidden Art E-shop http://www.hiddenartshop.com exhibited at ‘First hand 03’, as part of Tokyo Design Week in Japan, from 30 October – 5 November 2006.
The UKTI supported showcase opportunity, organised by the British Jewellery & Giftware Exports and the British Embassy in Tokyo, took place in Gallery 3, on the ground floor of Park Tower Building in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Exhibiting at ‘First Hand 03’ provided Hidden Art, and the seven UK based designer-makers whose products were on display, an opportunity to test the Japanese market and ‘meet-the-buyer’. The range of products on display included lighting, interior products, wallpapers and soft furnishings.
The seven designer-makers who showed their products included:
Caroline Raffan Glass – Fused glass
Charles Trevelyan – Titanic Lamp
Susan Bradley Design – Ivy Creep Shelf
