NIPPON Kichi - 日本吉

Jp En

In 2005, at a department-store event sponsored by Dunhill, an established English brand, urushi (Japanese lacquer) was adopted as the wall material.
Urushi lacquer gives a temporary space  a very luxurious finish, but the Dunhill creative team wanted to create a mysterious space like a black hole; the smooth and elegant appearance, which only urushi can express, drew the attention of passers-by.  This was the most important reason why they decided to use urushi.
The surface of the urushi wall is also decorated with lines of silver foil. The contrast between ebony and silver produces a modern touch.
Ubushima produced the urushi area of the event space.  It took them about half a year  considering the project from many angles, to inspect and solve the task of using urushi in a public space.  This event makes us understand and learn about some of the special qualities of urushi and take new steps with the material.
