In its 25th edition, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo saw over 30,000 visitors pass through its doors last month

Held from 10-12 June in Tokyo’s Big Sight West Halls and the Atrium, the show welcomed 769 exhibitors from 25 countries. On display, for buyers from around the world, was a range of high-quality design products, all forecasting lifestyle trends for the coming seasons. Arranged by leading trade fair organisers, Messe Frankfurt, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo 2015 also saw a selection of fringe programmes which included talking events and award sessions.

At this year’s exhibition, a selection of special zone highlights received much attention. This included the Curation zone which took place in the Atrium and showcased products that inspired museum shops. It was contributed to by Takashi Kobayashi and Mana Kobayashi, directors from the design office IMA. A selection of buyers from museum shops were impressed with this new concept. Rosey Blackmore and Hannah Oxley of Tate Enterprises Ltd. commented: “The fair was extremely well organised and curated to such a high standard with many interesting companies that we will be able to work with in the future. The Curation zone in the Atrium was fantastic; we found lots of interesting companies and products that we are definitely interested in stocking at Tate.” Another edition to the 2015 exhibition was the Foodist zone. Here, visitors could view and purchase a diverse range of well-designed kitchen items and beautifully-packaged foodstuffs. The area was extremely popular with interior and home ware store buyers.
