Japan / USA – Tiffany & Co. Celebrates Opening of Tiffany Wonder Exhibition at Tokyo Node Gallery

3 mins read


Tiffany & Co., the LVMH owned American luxury jewelry and specialty design house headquartered in New York, recently opened the ‘Tiffany Wonder’ exhibition in the prestigious Tokyo Node Gallery, located on the 45th floor of the tallest building in Tokyo, the Toranomon Hills Station Tower. The exhibition opened on the 12 April, 2024, with much fanfare and a bevy of celebrities in attendance; and will be on until 23 June, 2024.

Tiffany’s fascination with  Japan and its arts began in the 1870s, when its designers were inspired by the beauty and craftsmanship for their designs. Today, Japan is the House’s second-largest market globally, home to 59 Tiffany & Co. stores, with two of the newest ones opening this year in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza and Omotesando. The Tiffany Wonder exhibition builds on this momentum as it brings the remarkable story of the brand to the Tokyo Node Gallery.

Tiffany Wonder exhibition takes the visitors on a visual journey through hundreds of design masterworks, legendary diamonds and breathtaking wonders. Archival creations, contemporary high jewelry and more tell a story of craft and creativity, heritage and modernity at Tiffany & Co. over a span of 187 years. A celebration of respect and creativity, various aspects of the exhibition are dedicated to the ways in which Tiffany & Co. is inspired by Japan. The immersive show is Tiffany & Co.’s largest exhibition to date, featuring 10 rooms and nearly 500 objects that explore themes that are central to the House’s identity and uplift Tiffany’s longstanding connection to Japan.

More than an MVP in the sports world, Tiffany has also played a leading role in film and popular culture throughout its 187 years. Major motion pictures such as Rosemary’s Baby, Sleepless in Seattle, Sweet Home Alabama and The Great Gatsby, among others, featured Tiffany & Co. creations or were filmed at the House’s famed Fifth Avenue flagship store, The Landmark. Moreover, Tiffany has been incorporated into song lyrics as early as 1869 across a variety of musical genres, referenced by artists including Irving Berlin and Ella Fitzgerald, Lil Nas X, Drake, The Eagles, Queen and Ariana Grande. Wonder of Celebration is a tribute to this important and enduring Tiffany legacy.

Beginning with an installation that draws from the brand’s archive to form a digital catalogue, it is followed by displays of objects organized thematically. Highlights include Tiffany & Co.’s origins in New York in the 1830s, the introduction of the Blue Book mail-order catalogue, founder Charles Lewis Tiffany’s inspirations taken from Japanese goods, and celebrated designs by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Jean Schlumberger, and Elsa Peretti. The exhibition design takes advantage of the flexible conditions of TOKYO NODE and defines each room as a self-contained environment with a distinct atmosphere. An intimate scale throughout responds to the small, precious objects on display, which include jewelry, lamps, and other designs, inviting visitors to pay close attention. A tapestry, custom made for the exhibition, presents a timeline of the brand. The exhibition foregrounds sources of inspiration such as the natural world and Japanese craft traditions, as well as the appearance of Tiffany designs in popular culture – most famously in the 1961 film ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s ‘ – which signals Tiffany & Co.’s status as a cultural touchstone in its own right.
