How are contemporary artists and designers drawing inspiration from traditional practices?
Wagashi Asobi (“playful Japanese sweets”) in Tokyo innovates on traditional candy design to create beautiful and modern sweets.
Their work is responsive to both cultural and seasonal changes.
They also take great care with their choice of materials (ingredients) and offer their tasty designs as gestures of hospitality.
Our guest on June 3rd was Motohiro Inaba from Wagashi Asobi.
