2009年2月の原宿店のオープンの際には、佐野研二郎やファンタジスタ歌磨呂など24名の日本を代表するデザイナーが「ジャパンカルチャー」をテーマにTシャツデザインを作製し日本から世界に向けて発信。Tシャツのリリースと同時にギャラリースペースではキャンバスにプリントした作品を展示する「Japanese Designers Project」が企画された。

The graniph flagship store is located on Meiji street in Harajuku. The large shop of about 200m2 also has a gallery. Although the gallery itself is not very big, the glass-walled space looks very unique.

graniph has a wide variety of unique T-shirt designs with illustration-, typography-, photograph-, and graphic-prints designed by illustrators and designers from all over the world.

“The concept of the gallery is to symbolize what is going to be fashionable in the next generation, which is also the concept of the store itself. We are always conscious of what is new and needed in this age” says Mr. Takizawa, a graniph publicist.

The gallery shows works of the artists who has offered their artworks for T-shirts. Also there are collaboration exhibitions of T-shirts and artworks.

For its opening in Feb 2009, 24 leading designers in Japan such as Kenjiro Sano and Fantasista Utamaro got together and created artworks for T-shirts under the theme of “Japan Culture”. At the same time, the gallery held an exhibition titled “Japanese Designers Project” showing the printed works on canvases.

At this gallery, there are always works of various artists regardless of whether they are famous or not. You might encounter a very special T-shirt while you go to see your favorite artist’s work, or you might get interested in the exhibition while you randomly come to buy some clothes. There is such a mutual interaction, you never know what you get. That little curiosity towards design can lead you to new unexpected meetings and experiences in this place.
