Dutch design duo Scholten & Baijings, 2016/Arita, Japanese architect Fumihiko Sano and kimono designer Hiroko Takahashi teamed up to present the 2016/ Edition of Arita porcelain at the Design Miami / Basel Curio programme.

The presentation is part of the larger 2016/ project, which celebrates the four-hundredth anniversary of Japanese Arita porcelain in the year 2016.

In twenty-seven dishes, Scholten & Baijings celebrate the beauty of four hundred years of Arita porcelain and demonstrate what a rich source of inspiration traditional Arita ware can offer. Almost every item is carefully hand painted with a high level of sensitivity in collaboration with the Hataman Touen pottery.

For Design Miami / Basel 2017, Scholten & Baijings organised a series of Tea Performances. These 45-minute Tea Performances were conducted by Japanese Tea Master Soyu Mukai and held twice a day for up to three persons each.
