VIA BUS STOP MUSEUM

2012. September

To commemorate the 1st anniversary of its opening, and to celebrate its core concept “ART x RELAX x GIFT”,
VIA BUS STOP MUSEUM collaborated with international artist RORY DOBNER, to open his first ever shop-in-shop here in Tokyo, Japan.

The Rory Dobner shop-in-shop located inside VIA BUS STOP MUSEUM in the Daikanyama district of Tokyo, was designed based on the interior of Dobner's studio and home in Hampstead, London.

The space was decorated with a wide range of home ware such as “Intricate Ink Tiles”, “Marvellous Mugs” and “Fine Bone Perfect Plates”, as well as interior products, like the “Cuddly Cushions” and “Cosy Candles”.

The collection at VIA BUS STOP MUSEUM also includes a variety of steel paintings and printed canvases, also numerous original intricate ink drawings, which are framed in vintage wooden frames found in antique markets throughout Europe.

In addition, Dobner has worked with a number of established home furnishings companies in the UK like the historical furniture brand GEORGE SMITH, and luxury rug manufacturer THE RUG COMPANY, to put together this special installation.

Please come by and take a look at the unique world of Rory Dobner!

* This shop-in-shop is open for limited time. The end date will be informed at a later time.*
