Held in conjunction with the Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto exhibition, Takumi Next is a popup
showcase by Supermama, it’s first museum-specific curated offering that spotlights the next generation of traditional craftsmen from Japan.
The term “Takumi”(匠), refers to an “artisan” or “craftsman” in Japanese. As social norms and lifestyles evolve, we ponder the future of traditional crafts and the existential role of the craftsmen through a fine selection of everyday goods. Through the lens of these craftsmen, you can get a glimpse into the inner workings of a nation, Japan’s history and the industries that drive its economy.
Curated by SUPERMAMA in collaboration with JETRO (the Japan External Trade Organisation) and METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry), Takumi Next aims to support Japanese craftsmen to expand their presence in Singapore.
Opening Hours: 10am to 7pm daily (Friday closes at 9pm)
Supermama is a Singapore design and lifestyle goods brand.
Founded in 2010, we seek to provide museum-like respite to the busyness of urban life.
What started off as a couple’s decision to steal time away from work for their young children has evolved into Singapore’s go-to source for locally designed homeware and souvenirs.
The concept of giving is central in Supermama. We believe that good stories, good design and good crafts make good gifts.
From our classic “Made in Arita Japan” blue white porcelain, to contemporary tableware, every piece Supermama produces is made by some of the finest craftsmen in Asia, whilst exhibiting a distinctly Singaporean design sensibility.
In 2013, Supermama’s signature cobalt blue and white porcelain collection titled “Singapore Icons” was awarded the President’s Design Award – the foremost design accolade in Singapore.
