This event has ended.

Wonderwall’s Masamichi Katayama is one of the hottest interior designers on the global scene. His strength is in sharing the vision for each project and constructing a concept for the space at an early stage in the planning process, creating an environment that speaks directly to the mind of the consumer or occupant. His many projects include Uniqlo’s global flagship stores in New York, Paris and London, and United Arrows Roppongi Hills in Tokyo.
Katayama also has a reputation as a collector. A visit to his studio, Wonderwall, reveals an office crammed with his massive collection of books and CDs, together with antiques that he has picked up on his travels, furniture by designers such as Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand, and works by international contemporary artists such as Ryan Gander, Simon Fujiwara and Takashi Murakami. Coinciding with the 25th year of Masamichi Katayama’s design career, this exhibition presents his collection to the public. Katayama has himself considered how the collection can best be displayed in the context of an art museum to explore where his interests lie and the essence of creation that the collection embodies.
