Description

What does design mean to you? Join the conversation at Japan House London, where Japan’s leading creators share inspirational design that spans disciplines, regions and eras.

While Japan is synonymous with exemplary design it doesn’t yet have a dedicated national museum. This exhibition brings together seven major designers, from filmmakers to architects, to consider what they would put into a permanent collection of design treasures. Their personal responses capture Japan’s regional diversity and 10,000 years of history.

With displays ranging from Jōmon pottery to sportswear, from musical instruments to festivals, Design Discoveries presents the story of each chosen design and its origin. It asks you to make connections between different design worlds and discover design in the least expected places.

This interactive exhibition also invites you as a visitor to contribute your own treasures to a world design map and to share your own ideas about design.
