Starting Point
Gion, the heart of Kyoto, is known as a historic district. Located in a quiet street at the northern end of Gion, where antique art galleries are lined up, Art Mon Zen Kyoto offers comfort and tranquility. Fifteen rooms of different tastes are adorned at every turn with the beauty of Sukiya-zukuri architecture, all created by art dealer Nakanishi Shohoken.

The balance between sealing and diffusing sunlight at the window is stylishly achieved with the SOPRANO curtain fabric, while maintaining transparency. The subtle colouring  harmonises with any artwork and gives the room a calm and elegant character.
