In the quiet hilltop area of Duxton hill, tucked in a cozy pedestrian street lined with traditional Straits style shophouses, a peacefully elegant gallery sits beside a heart-shaped tree.
HULS Gallery Singapore was founded in September, 2017 as a global creative company with the mission to introduce the fine Japanese crafts called “Kogei” to the world. Based on the concept of “Roots & Touch”, HULS aims to enhance the rich culture of this cosmopolitan city by sharing this unique beauty of fine Japanese craftsmanship. “Roots” describes how these ceramics, lacquerware, textile, wood and bamboo crafts are deeply native to and nurtured by the various regions of Japan, while our “Touch” philosophy encourages customers to pick up each item, to hold it up close and experience not only its appearance but its unique feel as well.
HULS Gallery represents a new style of craft gallery that serves professionals in the culinary and design industry as well as the general public. The gallery’s sophisticated interior design – elegantly modern, but infused with a deep sense of nature – reflects the best of both Singapore and Japan, making it the perfect showcase for these modern-yet-traditional works.
Over the years HULS has built up a strong rapport with a network of rising, innovative Japanese craft manufacturers and artists, which it showcases through the HULS Gallery and through KOGEI STANDARD, a bilingual online showcase for Japanese crafts. Through this network, we are also able to support our customers with various types of planning.
