Japanese Design Today 100

June 8 - June 30

Japanese Design Today 100 (Chiang Mai)

What makes Japanese Design a World Class? Since 1950, Japan has been at the forefront of one of the leading nations promoting innovation and creativities as tools for business development and quality of life improvement. Today, Japanese “cultural capital,” or traditions and local wisdom are effectively utilized and applied to various design works. Thus, Japanese design products become popular as a result of their deep understanding of people’s life perspectives.

Initiated by the Japan Foundation, Bangkok and Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC) under the Creative Economy Agency (Public Organization), the exhibition “Japanese Design Today 100” is proposing contemporary Japanese culture in 100 designs, from the 1950s through the 1990s, the prime period that Japan significantly influences the design today. The products are developed from traditions in parallel with the innovations which have been intertwined with Japanese life today.

Through 100 products, the vivid pictures of conceptual ideas, social issues, personal lifestyles of not only individuals but also designers and corporations, as well as hopes and dreams of Japan are reflected.
