This Exhibition gathers designs that have exerted a deep influence on daily life.
These we define as The Original. Some 150 products designated as The Original are exhibited, selected by three forefront figures in today’s design world, Takahiro Tsuchida, Naoto Fukasawa and Kaoru Tashiro. The items range from furniture, tableware, and textiles to toys.
Accompanying the objects they have chosen are images and texts, explicating the works. The exhibition philosophy is laid comprehensibly and enjoyably.
