MONO JAPAN is a celebration of contemporary Japanese craft and design. It is an event and a platform devoted to sophisticated beauty grounded in tradition, enriched with contemporary thinking, and refined to perfection with uncompromising skills. MONO JAPAN represents design that defies the gravity of the mundane and brings joy to the simplest rituals of every day.
Once a year, MONO JAPAN presents a carefully curated selection of exceptional Japanese products and introduces its makers to the European audience. It initiates and facilitates collaboration between Japanese and European artists and designers. The yearly event created in collaboration with and staged at the Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy Amsterdam, includes presentations, workshops and exhibitions as well as a public and B2B product fair.
Due to the global pandemic of the new coronavirus, we sadly announce that the 5th edition of MONO JAPAN which was to be held from August 28th to 30th 2020 will be postponed, as the health and safety of our community is our top priority.
The next edition of our event will be rescheduled to February 5th to 7th 2021 (Fri-Sun), and for our venue we will be returning once again to the Lloyd Hotel.
