*Atelier Muji Ginza will be open from June 1.

This show highlights “white” and “plain” in porcelain, as well as the images and poetry the white porcelain has inspired. With this show, Atelier Muji Ginza Gallery 1 tries to rediscover white, as interpreted by modern designers, and now seen through contemporary eyes. It features over 50 pieces, mostly white tableware, from the Keiji Nagai Collection. Complementing the porcelain is a selection of 10 books with words musing on “white.”

Featured in the collection will be a vintage copy of poetry by 20th century avant-garde poet Kazue Kitasono, whose work provides the title of this show. The exhibition includes the white tea set designed by Russian Suprematism artist Kazimir Malevich, painter of the influential “White on White” (1918). Also featured is the Urbino series of Bauhaus-influenced simple forms created by Trude Petri, as well as the modern white ceramic tableware for daily use made by Japanese product design masters, such as Sori Yanagi and Masahiro Mori.
