One Book Bookstore

Book4

Yoshiyuki Morioka has taken curation to the next level with this bookshop that only carries one title! Every week Morioka selects a single book to offer his clientele, along with special talks and meet-the-author style events intended to enhance readers’ engagement.

Takram, the design studio responsible for the branding of the shop, played a crucial role in Morioka Shoten’s conception. The idea won the support of Masamichi Toyama (CEO of Smiles Co. Ltd.) who gave a “New Business” lecture at an event held by the design company last year. Morioka attended the lecture, fittingly presenting his business plan with a single sheet of paper, which simply said: “Regeneration of Bookseller Atom → A bookstore with a single book.”

Morioka Shoten opened in Tokyo back in May. More images of the execution of this unique concept below!

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
