VERTU Signature Auspicious: Inheritance of Traditional Culture

Urushi (lacquer) art is unique to Japan, China, Korea, and the countries of Southeast Asia, each country preserving to the present day its particular traditions. Japanese urushi art is especially rich in terms both of variety and sophistication of technique. Today, urushi art can be applied to many objects in Japan, including the daily utensils, decorative crafts, and architecture, exuding the unique charm of urushi.

 

Combined with the technical characteristics of urushi, the theme of expression tends to depict natural scenery, mountains, rivers, plants, flowers, birds and other things, and the luxurious and gorgeous patterns are natural, deep, and implicit, all of which reflect the unique aesthetic taste of Japan.

 

 

In 2008, the Japanese government recognized Murose Kazumi as a holder of the title of an important intangible culture. In addition to his creating activities, Murose has been involved in a wide range of activities such as preserving intangibly important Japanese culture and heritage through the preservation of national treasures and fostering capable successors and he has been at the forefront at home and overseas as one of the most esteemed urushi artists.

 

In 2010, to honor the first anniversary of our flagship 20-million yen store in Tokyo, VERTU collaborated with Kazumi on a new phone series. The limited-edition VERTU Signature Auspicious offers four seasonal designs in the artist’s intricate lacquer art. Each expresses the essence of spring, summer, autumn, or winter.

 

 

This unique blend is not only noticeable in appearance but also in the user experience. The feeling is as smooth as silk, and every touch is a perception of art. The nobility of lacquer and the exquisite craftsmanship of VERTU Signature Auspicious complement each other to create a feast of luxury and art.
