Owned by Masaki Nashino, NOW and TORi are two concept stores based in UNESCO Creative City of Crafts and Folk Art, Kanazawa, in Japan.
Masaki opened TORi first, creating a place where customers can find a wide variety of products, ranging from mid-century furniture imported mainly from Scandinavia to traditional crafts from the city, plants and photo books from Europe and Japan. TORi also houses a café serving delicious coffee and local specialities.
Masaki’s second store, NOW, is located just a few metres away from TORi and serves as a showroom, atelier and warehouse for 20th century modern design.
Our contributing photographer Pauline Miko visited TORi on her recent trip to Japan and shared her photos of the space with us.
