Tema Hima: The Art of Living in Tohoku

Last summer, 21_21 Design Sight co-director Issey Miyake responded to the March 11 disaster with a week-long exhibition titled The Spirit of Tohoku, celebrating the craftsmanship of the afflicted region. Now Miyake's fellow 21_21 directors, product designer Naoto Fukasawa and graphic designer Taku Satoh, are curating a Tohoku-themed exhibition of their own – and this time, it's going to run for longer than a mere week. 'Tema Hima' showcases some of the Tohoku region's distinctive crafts and traditions, supplementing the objects themselves with specially commissioned video, photographs and graphics.
