‘Arita / A Table of Content’
For the wonderful book ‘Arita / Table of Contents’ published by Phaidon in April 2016, I went to the small town of Arita in Japan to photograph behind the scenes of a beautiful design project.
Arita is famous for its specific porcelain and craftsmen. I joined a group of renowned international designers who worked together with Arita’s experts to produce contemporary porcelain and set up a new brand. The book tells the story of Arita’s history of trading with the Netherlands and how tradition, craftsmanship and contemporary design are brought together.
