Business Brand

Every item discovered through the sound aesthetic sense of Metropolitan Gallery’s METROCS business, or planned, developed, and sold independently, is packed with its creators’ ingenuity and sensitivity, as well as an inherited “chic” stylishness of materials and techniques. By incorporating these items into their everyday living as tools or personal fashion statements, users are able to resolve problems, discover new value, and experience creative lifestyles. It is precisely for this reason that METROCS is committed to being a business that evolves people’s everyday living through use of our products.

None of the items discovered through METROCS’ sound aesthetic sense, or planned, developed, and sold independently, is a “fad” item that will soon become obsolescent as fashion trends change;rather, a mandatory condition for each of our products is that users be able to continuously savor the value over the course of an item’s utilization. Needless to say, each item is a “truly high-quality product” in every respect, from materials and parts through construction method, but ideally, each item also imparts a sense of the thinking and philosophy of its designer. Accordingly, METROCS is committed to not only selecting and selling truly high-quality products but also reviving lost items or designs that are essential to our times, or to the future, and to passing these on to future generations. Furthermore, if there is any item or design that could be essential to our times or to the future but does not currently exist, we will collaborate with contemporary designers to create it and pass it down in perpetuity.
