The AkihiroWoodworks in Hong Kong

1 April - 7 April

EVENT DESCRIPTION

In addition to the meticulous craft and care it puts into each cup, renowned speciality coffee brand Blue Bottle Coffee is also known for finding new ways to connect people to exceptional coffee experiences. In April 2020, Blue Bottle Coffee opened its first cafe in Hong Kong, so this year marks its fourth anniversary.

Blue Bottle Coffee Wan Chai Cafe will host a fascinating event from 1 to 7 April. The AkihiroWoodworks in Hong Kong exhibition will showcase several pieces from the internationally renowned AkihiroWoodworks studio, known for its production of beautiful handmade wooden cups, which it refers to as jincups. It offers the public an opportunity to appreciate the exquisite craftsmanship of Japanese artisans and their skilful woodworking creations up close.

Japanese woodworking brand AkihiroWoodworks has collaborated with Blue Bottle Coffee on several occasions, most notably on the highly acclaimed jincup. Its craftsmanship has attracted attention both in Japan and internationally, with the jincup becoming a coveted collector’s item. Each release of its products generates enthusiastic demand from coffee enthusiasts, making them highly sought after. Designed to preserve the aroma of coffee, the jincup represents Jin Akihiro’s connection with nature as he enjoys coffee outdoors.

In addition to numerous exhibitions throughout Japan, AkihiroWoodworks’ creations have been exhibited in Paris and New York, earning admiration from the art community. They were recently shown in a solo exhibition in Tokyo’s Isetan Shinjuku in mid-March. Now, the Tour of Asia Exhibition – AkihiroWoodworks in Hong Kong comes to the Blue Bottle Coffee store in Wan Chai. This exhibition is the first time that the brand’s works, including the famous jincup and other handicrafts, will be shown to the Hong Kong public.

For the Hong Kong exhibition, AkihiroWoodworks has released a limited edition of 50 Hong Kong-themed Jincups. They feature the Blue Bottle logo on the base, along with the words “Hong Kong”, making them highly collectible. Jin Akihiro himself will be in the shop on the 1st and 2nd of April.
