Time & Style Amsterdam

The brick-made building facing Marnixstraat is Politiebureau Raampoort, designed by architect Willem Springer and built in 1888. This police station originated in an area around the Jordaan district and was moved in 2015, after more than 120 years of operation.

This historic building was designated as a protected historic building of the Netherlands in 2001. The building with a clock tower – a mixture of the neoclassical and medieval styles – is a symbol of Marnixstraat.

The beautifully renovated interior of the building has about 900m2 area, consisting of four aboveground levels and one underground level. We mainly exhibit our unique products, including Japanese hand made furniture, lights, tableware, towels, as well as daily commodities, bonsai, and contemporary arts. We basically provide Japanese-style services by our staff, just like in shops in Japan. Through conversations with each customer, we carefully explain the characteristics and functionality of the products, background of manufacturing, and maintenance services.

We provide products for any kind of interior projects (including for general houses, hotels, restaurants, and shops), and propose comprehensive space designs. We comprehensively express Japanese aesthetics of today and realistic lifestyles rooted in tradition, by exhibiting Japanese designs, traditional crafts, and contemporary arts throughout the year.

Katsutoshi Mizuno
porcelain exhibition

18 November – 18 December 2022

Time & Style Amsterdam is pleased to present an exhibition by Japanese ceramic artist Katsutoshi Mizuno.

His way of creating involves careful research of the excellent works made by the artisans, imagining their intentions and historical background, and then reproduces them in modern-day utensils. This way, the shape and design of classic pieces from Japan is incorporated. This is the concept of “Utsushi”.

Mizuno has been making white porcelain vessels for the biggest part of his life, using a technique whereby porcelain vessels are pressed into a handcrafted mould. 

His first solo exhibition in Europe will feature a large number of beautiful vessels.
