Carré MOJI

To Fly high in the sky

Carré MOJI is an interior artwork that combines the traditional Japanese culture of calligraphy with a modern sensibility.

Carré MOJI is a coined word combining the French word "Carré" (a comfortable courtyard) and the Japanese word “Moji (character)". It was born in 2002 with the desire to create a "comfortable space with characters" and to introduce it to the world as a new Japanese culture.

Beautiful calligraphy by 13 calligraphers selected from all over Japan who have both calligraphy ability and design sensitivity. The original framing design complements their works.

The works, created without compromising on any aspect of the artwork, will expand beautiful landscapes and scenes in the hearts of those who see them.
