We at IFJ HOLDINGS LTD. are pleased to announce that, together with our marketing partner in Taiwan, funfuntown, we are going to hold an exhibition of Two Handicrafts Designers - OJI Masanori & ONO Rina starting from August 26, 2017 in Taipei.

The title of this exhibition, "NIJYUMARU," means a double circle in Japanese, which comes from the first letter of the designers' family names, "OJI" and "ONO." In Japanese, NIJYUMARU means very good and is also used to indicate important locations on a map.

We would like to put "NIJYUMARUs" in the world map, starting from Taipei to spread the good to like-minded people in the world!

At the exhibition, representing products of the makers and brands produced by the two designers such as FUTAGAMI, JICON, TAKAHASHI KOUGEI, conte, etc. are displayed with detailed information and visuals to showcase and communicate the philosophy, scenes, methodology, history, and cultural background of their works.

A talk-show by OJI Masanori, ONO Rina, and participating makers, IMAMURA Hajime of JICON and EGUCHI Hiroaki of conte will also be hosted by funfuntown on August 26, 2017 after the reception party.
