Japan Dento Corporation has played an important role as the curators of future-oriented premium materials rooted in Japanese traditional craft culture. All projects aim to connect the world's luxury spaces with artisans and artists involved in traditional crafts.
To this end, we have built a track record of providing interior materials for five-star hotels, high-class restaurants, offices, and cruise trains, and other spaces through the world’s leading design offices, developers, and architectural firms.
Now, with the accumulated experience, unique idea and network, we launch “wabizo" The Luxury Gift Collection of Contemporary Japanese Craftwork to provide premium gift products for the world's luxury market.
Further advancing Japanese traditional craft culture
At the time of 10th Anniversary, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all stakeholders who have supported our company's business to date.
So far, our company has focused on B2B markets, making full use of the traditional techniques of artisans and artisans, providing clients with high-level works and services by designing materials suitable for hospitality and retail interiors as “Contemporary Japanese Style.”
However, the architectural space market does not devote much attention to Japan's traditional craft industry, and many skilled artisans and artists are still unable to thrive in this light. We need to improve this situation as soon as possible, making a leap forward so the traditional Japanese craft culture created by our predecessors will not die out.
In 2020, in order to further advance the traditional Japanese craft industry, we are launching a luxury gift collection under the brand name “wabizo" The Luxury Gift Collection of Contemporary Japanese Craft Works”—through which we are working to create new value for the consumer market.
I believe that inherited traditions, diversity and creativity are critical elements of the future and sustainable development of humanity.
CEO, Japan Dento Corporation
We will revitalize and restructure the skills and sensibilities of Japanese traditional crafts and culture to preserve and expand its value in the present, and create markets around the world so that they can be adopted and rapidly developed.
1) Convinced of the potential of the architecture and interior market, we will focus mainly on the interior design of five-star hotels and brand shops to strengthen B2B business.
2) We will enter the luxury gift market with artwork rooted in traditional Japanese crafts. Develop the D2C market with a focus on online sales.
