Yusuke Seki Designs A Shop With 25,000 Pieces Of Tableware
- Charmaine Li
Tokyo-based designer Yusuke Seki redesigned the flagship store for ceramics brand Maruhiro in Nagasaki, Japan using 25,000 locally sourced white tableware to create new layers in the space. Each of the pottery pieces are imperfect and sourced from factories in the Hasami region, an area steeped with a history of ceramic production. For the design, Seki stacked the pieces of tableware like bricks forming new levels in the renovated store as a way to alter store-goers’ experience and interpretation of the environment.
