PIGMENT is a comprehensive facility for creativity that includes aspects
of a laboratory, workshop, museum and retail store, with a lineup of
high-quality, rare art materials including pigments in 4,500 hues,
glues, and brushes for calligraphy and painting.
Renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma designed the interior of the facility, and the space, featuring a striking ceiling outlined by curving bamboo blinds and pigment shelves that cover an entire wall with gradations of color was highly acclaimed, leading to the award.
Bolstered by this international acclaim, PIGMENT will continue to play the role of a hub for transmitting cultural value by handing down traditions in art materials and painting techniques.

With pigments in 4500 hues, 200 varieties of aged ink sticks, 50 different vehicles for paint blending, it offers materials of rare and surpassing quality created with techniques from all times and places. Also, PIGMENT is taking unique approaches to research, educate and popularize “art materials,” their “usage,” and furthermore “expression” produced by this harmony.
