Hirata Gen Collection
During 3daysofdesign – Hirata Gen Collection will present their first collection and with this also be represented in Denmark. The exhibition takes place in the very heart of Copenhagen and will unveil a total of 18 new products distributed on chairs, sofas and tables.
Danish/Japanese design traditionally handcrafted in Japan using natural and pure materials. The word ”gen” is in Danish singular for “gene” and in Japanese the word for “origin”. It is as such and in one word emphasizing the essence of the new brand; The Hirata Gen Collection.
The HGC collection is realised through a dedicated collaboration between the craftsmen of Japanese furniture maker Hirata, Danish architect Lars Vejen and Japanese designer Taijiro Ishiko.
Together the designers are named studioA27 and work across borders using their individual backgrounds and mutual fascination of each other’s cultural and design heritage.
