Time & Style Milan new showroom

Time & Style is pleased to announce that its second European showroom will open on 28 April, 2022 in the Brera district of Milan, a city overflowing with sophistication and sensitivity.

In our Milan showroom too, we will continue providing our customers with furniture, lighting fixtures, and tableware designed for contemporary lifestyles, featuring products crafted using Japanese techniques, carefully selected materials, and delicate handcrafting. A series of beautiful arches creates a capacious 500 m2 space, under which our visitors can experience rich lifestyle scenes in living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms featuring interior products, art, and live music. In addition to our original products, we will also exhibit and sell ceramic and woodcraft collections by Japanese artists.

Time & Style Milan will transcend the realm of Japanese craftsmanship to create new value through a fusion of East and West, providing new ways of life for people around the world. We will offer a full range of interior design products and spaces for everyone, from the general public to architects, designers, and other professionals.

We look forward to greeting our customers in Italy and around the world.

Exhibition of the Peter Zumthor collection

At Milan Design Week 2022, we will present a furniture collection created with architect Peter Zumthor.

We will be exhibiting a selection of furniture that Peter Zumthor designed [OM3] for his architectural projects, reconstructed and brought to market in Japan by Time & Style using our proprietary manufacturing techniques and materials. His architecture is the result of extensive time and thought, and the furniture designed and produced for that architecture is an integral part of the space. Over three years[OM4]  of dialogue with Mr. Zumthor while developing these products resulted in updated materials, constructions, and details while carefully preserving the original concepts. His deep empathy for Time & Style’s craftsmanship, which makes use of traditional Japanese techniques and materials, has resulted in the world’s first Peter Zumthor furniture collection.

Time & Style anniversaries

This spring, Time & Style Amsterdam celebrates its fifth anniversary, and Time & Style Midtown its fifteenth.

Searching for retail space in the Netherlands, we happened to come across the beautiful brick building that became Time & Style Amsterdam. This building was an important site for Amsterdam, protecting the city and its citizens as a police station for around 130 years. Our voyage is only a brief flicker amidst the long history of deep friendship between the Netherlands and Japan, but as residents of Amsterdam ourselves, we hope to continue learning and sharing our joy.

Time & Style Midtown was launched alongside Tokyo Midtown, a shopping complex in Tokyo’s Roppongi district. It was a very stimulating time for us to meet with our many customers from around the world every day, conveying Japanese culture and traditions as we proposed spaces to them. In the store we also held exhibitions and performances of live music, which we consider to be important elements of a rich life. We hope that this fifteen-year milestone will provide opportunities for reflecting again on what makes for a fulfilling life, and that our store will become a point of contact with our customers.

With so many events happening in Japan and around the world, bringing both joys and the challenges facing us, we are sincerely grateful for our ability to manufacture our products and to greet our customers in the same place. We hope you will continue to look to us as we take on our own challenges as we earnestly explore new ways to bring you a richer lifestyle.

Katsutoshi Mizuno Porcelain Exhibition

Beloved ceramic dishes made by potters of long ago are given new life in the present through “replication.”

Mr. Mizuno’s porcelain vessels, born of “replication,” are transformed into new works of art through faithful rendering and a spirit of self-effacement; and in their serenity, we can discover strength. Additionally, many beautiful dishes of identical appearance are produced through this artist’s exquisite skills as a craftsman.

These dishes are created through highly refined technique and detailed workmanship. Visitors are encouraged to pick them up and enjoy their beauty to the fullest.
