Designtide Tokyo 2012

Designtide Tokyo 2012

Formed from the ashes of Tokyo Designers Block, the annual Designtide Tokyo offers hardcore creative types a chance to show off their latest work, with a particular emphasis on interior design and commercial products. Though it overlaps with the larger Tokyo Designers Week, Designtide distinguishes itself by putting less emphasis on the trade show component: a panel discussion mulls over current issues in contemporary design, while a specially curated exhibition showcases work that 'portrays our views and aims of the year.' Designers are able to flog their wares in the attached Tide Market, and there'll be ancillary events scattered at venues throughout central Tokyo. See the offical DesignTide Tokyo website for details.
