We launched upscale lifestyle brand
called “NAGAE+” (pronounced “Nagae ploos”) in 2015.
Since then we have been spreading our wings around the world
with metallic home accessories
that crystallise aesthetics evolved for generations in Japan.
Our parent company, NAGAE Ltd., has been engaged
in a multifaceted metalworking business for 60 years in Takaoka, Toyama, Japan.
Starting with four craftsmen and limited working machines,
the company went through tough times after the World War Two,
and spurred technological innovations
during the rapid economic growth years (1954-1973).
While having a high degree of adaptability to changing times,
NAGAE Ltd. has manufactured a variety of metallic products
and supported Japanese lifestyle.
We brighten up the world by the essence of Japanese aesthetics
grows substantially, positively adding many essences,
such as people, culture, and techniques to craftsmanship in NAGAE Ltd.
NAGAE+ is created by Shoko Tsurumoto who is well known for
introducing Japanese cool home accessories to the world.
We propose beauty of metals and a new shape of life,
mixing rich design and high skilled techniques
which have been handed onto craftspeople in Takaoka for 400 years.
