Based on the first sugary sweets introduced to the Japanese city of Hirado in the 16th century, Chitose Ohchi has curated an utterly unique jewellery collection for MONO JAPAN. Calling on nine different Japanese jewellery designers, Chitose presents their work as part of a multi-layered exhibition that also references the age-old maritime relationship between the Dutch and Japanese. Chitose as a long-standing relationship with the Netherlands in particular working with design alumni from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The exhibition will be accompanied by intermittent live piano performances and a tea-making ceremony in Room 221.
