Following the success of the WONDER LAB exhibition in Japan, HEART & crafts is honoured to participate in the JAPON-JAPONISMES exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.


The exhibition celebrates two centuries of interconnections and mutual enrichment between France and Japan, retracing the highlights of this shared history of cultural exchanges, where artistic influences blend with creativity and boldness to reveal a field of contemporary creation that engages with art and design.


It is the continuation of the intercultural and human dialogue initiated with WONDER LAB at the Tokyo National Museum, through fifteen artists who, by constantly experimenting and pushing the boundaries of their craft, are questioning and enchanting the world.


With works inspired by Japan in a formal, technical or ornamental manner, seven of them have been invited to participate in the JAPON-JAPONISMES exhibition.
