The "Cutlery Study Group," which appeared in the product design feature in Design Magazine AXIS vol.228, is coming to AXIS Gallery. Product designers YUSUKE HAYASHI and YOKO YASUNISHI (DRILL DESIGN), GEN SUZUKI and buyer Yu Yamada. The study group was founded when the four of us were sitting around a pizza and we spontaneously started a discussion based on design about the forks and knives at hand. The theme is not "which one sells" or "who designed it," but simply "which cutlery is better." Why not listen to a deep and tasteful cutlery talk while holding a pizza in your hand? On the day of the event, you will be able to see the cutlery masterpieces brought by the speakers. If you have any cutlery models that you would recommend, please bring them with you.
