We have started an invitation campaign for the upcoming joint exhibition rooms 40, as a special thanks to all customers who shop online and at our affiliated stores. Please visit our nationwide stores and online shop for more information.
*This campaign will end as soon as the invitation tickets run out.
From Thursday, February 20 to Saturday, February 22, the 40th joint exhibition “rooms” hosted by H.P.FRANCE will be held at the National Yoyogi Stadium First Gymnasium for the first time in three years after completing its renovation for the Tokyo Olympics.
At the venue, an estimated 500 brands from Japan and abroad will gather and will be categorized into 6 genres – Technology, Idea, Soul & Body, Ethical, Design, and Culture. Using creation as a keyword, rooms will provide content through fashion, jewelry, lifestyle, art, ethical, dance and musical performances, meditation, seminars by specialists in various industries, cafe booths, etc. In each area, you may communicate directly with creators and make purchases on the spot.
H.P.FRANCE believes that the creations by creators and the proposal of new ways of living will bring forth the creativity lurking in the hearts of many, giving birth to new cultures, and enriching our lives. Through a common language called “creation”, the 3 days at rooms will be a place where people could feel connected regardless of race, gender, age, etc. Please come visit us at rooms 40.

– ETHICAL AREA –
In 2010, the ethical area was launched with the aim of contributing to society through creation, based on the value of “ALTERNATIVE” set by H.P.FRANCE. We introduce not only sustainable products and brands, but we suggest various ideas, such as the project by the industrial waste disposal company “Nakadai” that aims to supervise garbage discharged during rooms. This time a major presentation will be the Industrial Waste Summit run by Nakadai. The company boasts an amazing recycling rate of 99%, processing 60 tons of waste every day. As a non-waste project, information and hints for new environmental businesses will be published during the exhibition.
– Featured artists –
While incorporating motion graphics as the starting point of the design, Masaru Ozaki incorporates a unique world into his works. He has been selected as one of the “50 Light-Manipulating Artists in the World” and attention has been paid to the work “CHAIR (2008)”. His works has been recognized at the Japan Pavilion at the Expo Shanghai, and also his collaboration with Van Cleef & Arpels. At rooms40, “Just a round the corner” exhibited at Art Miami will be unveiled in Japan for the first time.
The entrance of rooms40 will be decorated by Yu Kato, an artist who has traveled around the world, and creates works based on the theme of nature. Wind, light, sound … all the natural elements that surround us, is constantly changing. Please come see the fantastic world of Yu Kato.
