Zakka – Goods and Things

There isn’t an exact translation for the Japanese word “zakka”, but according to the exhibition’s organisers, it refers to “things that accompany our everyday lifestyle spaces and provide a subtle element of decoration”. Directed by the Japan’s own master of understated design Naoto Fukasawa – who probably has more than a few zakka designs in his portfolio – the exhibition will try to give an overview of Japan’s material culture and the possibilities of rediscovering the often overlooked and taken-for-granted stuff of everyday life.
