The power of design connects cultures and people, now more than ever.
Japan has fostered a variety of incredible designs amid its culture of everyday life that has continued for 10,000 years since the Jomon period. All over the country, there are many slumbering treasures that sparkle when viewed through the lens of design. From the 10,000-year-old way of life to musical instruments born in the twenty-first century, discover various objects and ideas created by Japanese people and researched by some of the world’s leading creators. The “boxes” designed by architect Tsuyoshi Tane are packed tightly with brilliance that emerges when viewed through the lens of design.
