Montblanc, founded in Switzerland in 1906, has been producing traditional items that are improved by new functionality and innovative designs such as its signature fountain pen. Until now, its product lines have spread to watches, leather goods, accessories, fragrances, eyewear, and more, and Montblanc continues to polish its flawless craftsmanship. The company, with its deeply rooted tradition in writing culture, has been supporting art and cultural activities since its foundation.

[Reasons why Warehouse TERRADA was selected for the award]
Warehouse TERRADA’s dynamism as a new type of art patronage including Tennoz area revitalization
In Japanese modern art scene, a number of dynamic activities by Warehouse TERRADA have been signaling a new form of the role of art patrons. Its CEO, Mr. Yoshihisa Nakano is not only an art collector himself but also a savior for artists and art patrons. The event spaces of Warehouse TERRADA take advantage of their warehouse characteristics and have developed a reputation as the hottest spots for art related events and exhibitions, and in 2017 the “DAVID BOWIE is…” retrospective exhibition was held in one of these event spaces. The Tennoz area was reborn as a key art site under the leadership of Mr. Nakano, whose many activities include organizing art awards to support young artists, operating rental art studios and an art materials lab that offers a panoply of rare and superior quality materials, and offering one-stop art-related services such as transportation, exhibition, storage, restoration and others. In addition, last October, Warehouse TERRADA released GVIDO, the digital music score device which will revolutionize the lifestyles of musicians all over the world. It is the first time in Japan that this award has been given to a company. The passion, exquisite taste, and foresight of one person have been significantly enhanced through the activities of this company and brought to fruition with great effect, which is now deserving of praise.
