Planning and development of “MYCLO” the digital mirror

Tanseisha has developed a new digital mirror called “MYCLO” that allows shoppers to take photos of themselves trying out clothes, compare them, and save the photos to their smartphones for later viewing. We developed the mirror in order to solve the problems of users (shoppers), stores and manufacturers, by incorporating digital content technology into our unique approach and experience in the creation of many commercial facilities including apparel, retail stores, and specialty stores.

New Business Development and Promotion

Providing “B-OWND” – A new platform for artwork utilizing blockchain technology.

Using blockchain technology, we provide the services of B-OWND, a platform that enables the sale and distribution of traditional Japanese art and craftwork to the world. With the introduction of digital registration forms authenticating artwork via blockchain, we have made it possible to create value through the mutual influence of first and secondary distribution, buying and selling works on an E-commerce platform while guaranteeing both their authenticity and added-value in an art market where ownership history is crucial. By forming a new distribution network for collectors in Japan and overseas, we will increase both the awareness and distribution of art works created by traditional Japanese techniques, expand the market, and at the same time contribute to the succession of technology, the development of cultural leaders, the promotion of Japanese culture and art, and last but not least, the revitalizing of local regions.

Participation in demonstrative experiments with CRESNECT, a spatial data co-creation platform, and their project “point 0 marunouchi,” pondering the office space of the future.

We are participating in a demonstrative experiment initiated by “point 0 marunouchi,” a member-type co-working space aimed at realizing the “future of office space,” which is the first project of CRESNECT*, a spatial data co-creation platform. We aim to create richer office spaces that are tailored to every type of working environment, from entire offices to open spaces and conference rooms. We do this by taking our ability to bring ideas to life and know-how regarding design, production, and construction, and combining them with the latest technologies, data, and know-how of current partner companies. In addition, we are able to promote a new kind of spatial design that makes use of the data of each of our partner companies representing a variety of fields and sectors.
We also offer solutions for the sattelite office projects run by point0 Co., Ltd., who also operates the point 0 committe, of which we are also a member.

Industry-Academia Collaboration Project
“Mobile Museum”, spreading information on academia and culture through “museums that can be brought out anywhere.”

We have established the Mobile Museum, an industry-academia collaboration project with The University Museum, The University of Tokyo, in the reception area of our head office. This exhibition was unitized in a completely new way, connecting the university’s academic resources with our corporate office. Through practical research of compactly displaying specimens from the University of Tokyo, we provide visitors with the chance to take in the academic and cultural samples at our office. The exhibition content is selected and updated regularly regardless of the field, be it natural or cultural history.

What is the “Mobile Museum”

It is an experimental project on next-generation museums. The name was coined by its purpose: “a museum that can be brought out anywhere.” By compactly displaying the contents of the exhibition at schools, houses, businesses, and public facilities, the surrounding space is transformed into a temporary museum space. The Mobile Museum is a tool that provides cultural assets to a wide range of social audiences by mobilizing existing museum collections.
