DECO BOKO Online
August 1st, 2021 – November 15th, 2021
Both timeless and new, DECO BOKO is pleased to introduce various brands from Japan to showcase their latest collections of gifts, furniture, and home goods.
Based in New York, DECO BOKO is the first wholesale tradeshow in the US that focuses on Japanese products in the design / gift industry.
The organizers of DECO BOKO are native to Japan, and have been supporting Japanese brands and manufacturers to give them opportunities to succeed in the US market.
Although we have been seeing high potential in well made / designed Japanese products, there are often gaps between the Japanese brands and the American buyers that makes it hard to do business.
DECO BOKO is a phrase commonly used in Japan which means “uneven”, and could also mean “filling in the gaps”.
The logo of DECO BOKO was created with New York based design studio, Studio Newwork, inspired by this concept and the Japanese “Kanji” characters “凸凹”, which represents the word DECO BOKO.
We hope this show helps fill in the gaps between the Japanese brands and US buyers, for better transparency and fewer steps to achieve a business relationship for both parties.
DECO BOKO Online is live between August 1st, 2021 through November 15th, 2021.
