Roland DG Exhibition Space Opens Showcasing Personalized Printing and Milled Objects

Roland DG's new head office in Hamamatsu, Japan, features an exciting exhibition space, showcasing works created using its products by clients and designers from around the world.

Inspiring imagination in an exhibition space

Developed as “a space that embodies the enjoyment of creation and moves people’s hearts,” the exhibition space introduces creative solutions from Roland DG worldwide.

As you enter, the digitally restored reproduction of Katsushika Hokusai’s "Phoenix Glaring in All Directions" at Gansho-in Temple, printed with a Roland DG UV printer, particularly catches the eye. Roland DG collaborated in creating the original-size digital reproduction, a key exhibit from the “Digital x Hokusai” Special Exhibition in 2022 (related article here). With the assistance of Ars Techne and NTT ArtTechnology, Roland DG faithfully reproduced the colors and delicate brushwork pursued by Hokusai in a reduced-size version (3,540×2,950 mm) for our lobby space.

Drawing inspiration from graphic decoration in the world of motorsports, Roland DG has included a strikingly wrapped go-kart in the selection of products on display. Musical instruments enhanced with graphics, such as a Fender electric guitar customized by ArtGuitar, are also shown.

Digital printing allows customization of non-traditional materials such as eco-friendly ethical leather.

Near the entrance, you'll find sofas and chairs printed with UV printers on eco-friendly ethical leather from Kyowa Leather Cloth Co., Ltd., a customer Roland DG featured in interviews last year. These items were crafted in collaboration with Public Co., Ltd., a manufacturer and seller of commercial furniture. The furniture is available for visitors to experience the smooth leather texture and see the vibrant prints firsthand.

Experience the diverse potential of UV printing

The exhibition space also features a simulated retail display showcasing customized items such as headphones from V-MODA (USA) and gin bottles from Wild Distillery (Denmark).

As part of Roland DG's exhibition plan, it conducted an in-house design competition, and the winning designs were printed on suitcases using UV printers by Multicopy Diemen (Netherlands), a company that specializes in personalized printing of custom suitcases. The suitcases were not only displayed but also presented to the winners.

Customization and personalization of various types of sports items has become extremely popular within the sporting goods industry. The exhibition space includes various examples of such products, all customized using Roland DG digital technology.

SColors (Spain), featured earlier this year, customizes bicycles using Roland DG's desktop-sized digital tools. They provided a special bicycle and matching helmet showcasing their comprehensive customization techniques. Additionally, the display features original skateboards designed by a professional female skateboarder which were presented at the TrueVIS Range Premiere (Barcelona) in January.

Shooter Padel (Spain) provided customized paddles for pickleball, a popular sport that combines elements of tennis and squash. Stylish snowboard wear from Burton Snowboards (USA) is also exhibited.
