ON SEPTEMBER 29, 2017, the Ishinomaki–Detroit Collaborative, in partnership with The Carr Center and the Detroit Design Festival, hosted the U.S. debut exhibition of Ishinomaki Laboratory in the heart of downtown Detroit. Rather than import pieces from Japan, all Ishinomaki Laboratory furniture on display was built using locally-sourced wood by artisans at the Brightmoor Maker Space.
