Arts & Science was founded by Sonya Park in Tokyo's in 2003. She first started to sell antique objects she had found in Europe and filled the shelves with everyday goods from abroad. Everything she sells is something she personally adore. The goal of each Arts&Science store is to make that search, whether it’s for clothing, shoes, jewelry, food or other daily items, much easier and far more pleasant. Her work is based on "genuine quality" that gains in value and beauty with age and time. The shapes are inspired by men's, vintage, work and ethnic wear. High-quality, beautifully aging materials combined with highly skilled crafts work of Japanese artisans produce this line that is truly modern luxury.
