Tokyo Weekly: 100% Design and Design Tide

Written by Keiji Ashizawa
Translated by Hannah Hernandez

Tokyo design week turned out to be a successful and very prosperous event.  The two big events were 100% design Tokyo and Design Tide.  Tokyo design week on 0ct 30th thru Nov. 3rd turned out to be a very successful week.  Both events were blessed with many participants as usual.  We are proud to say that the prototype exhibitions which we hosted were also a great success.

I’d like to introduce a few designers out of the 29 pairs.

CH-BED-AIR can be considered a prototype that encourages one to think about what it could possibly evolve into. This can be seen by his sketching as well. By exhibiting a piece like this at the show, it allows people who see it to imagine more possibilities. There were many participants who created products for the show with the hope of possibly expanding these ideas into greater products for the future.
