LIXIL Publishing's activities started in 1982, after the opening of the LIXIL Gallery (formerly Ina Gallery) in 1981, and began with catalogs for gallery exhibitions. Since then, LIXIL Publishing produced books and web media with the aim of raising progressive issues and encouraging new discoveries while keeping an eye on the ever-changing urban landscape, until our activities ended on November 25, 2021.
Over the past 40 years, many architects, designers, critics, researchers, and editors have supported our activities. We have been able to publish more than 400 books, including the LIXIL Booklet series, the 10+1 series, and the Contemporary Architect Concept series, thanks to the generosity of everyone who has contributed their valuable knowledge and passion. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude, including to all the readers for their patronage of LIXIL Publishing.
The distribution and sale of our books will be continued by Two Virgins, Inc. from November 26, 2021. We thank you for your continued patronage towards LIXIL's cultural activities.
