ABOUT US


Launched in October 2016, Sway Gallery presents a variety of premium products, artisanal goods and artworks with Japan as the primary theme. With the headquarter in London, situated in creative Old Street, and two sister branches – in vibrant Marais, Paris, and in Sweden, in the heart of Stockholm’s Södermalm on Hornsgatan, our aim is to actively advocate Japanese art and introduce Japanese hidden gems to Europe.
Sway Gallery has two key areas: an exhibition area and a concept store. In the gallery, we take our pride in introducing both acknowledged as well as up-and-coming artists, who either have roots in Japan or are inspired by Japanese tradition and arts. The concept store gathers high quality products, showcasing the brilliance of Japanese craftsmanship and design, often not available anywhere else outside of Japan.
We wish to inspire and encourage appreciation and passion for Japanese art and craftsmanship in Europe and around the globe.

近年の日本文化は古典的な文化や哲学はもとより、食文化に代表されるライフスタイルそのものが大きな関心を集めていますが、スウェイギャラリーはそんな日本文化をアート&クラフトの形で紹介すべく、2016年にオープンしました。ロンドンでもクリエイティブな界隈として名高い東部に位置するオールドストリート、パリでは世界を代表するアートの一角マレ地区にて高い評価を得た後、2019年にはスウェーデンのストックホルムに3つ目のロケーションを立ち上げました。
一般的なアートギャラリーとは一線を画し、ワークショップや日本関連書籍の新刊発表、日本酒や食品関係のイベント、その他多岐に渡るポップアップを開催しています。作品展に関しても、絵画や写真、陶器などクラシックなアート分野の他にも、“食品”や”靴“をアートとして紹介する、つまりアートの既成概念を取り払った試みも行っています。
ギャラリーに併設するコンセプトストアでは、日本文化に造詣の深い方へも最適な伝統工芸品、あるいはちょっとしたプレゼントにも喜ばれる日本のアイディア商品まで数多く取り揃えています。
ロンドンの喧騒から離れ、心落ち着く空間で懐かしい日本の空気をお楽しみください。
また、同じ志をお持ちの方々からのコラボレーションアイディアもお待ちしております。
