Yokohama Makers Village is back with Reflection/Shadow to explore the material’s characteristics in a game of reflections and shadows.

Japan Design Week, Japanese design festival supported by the Design Association npo transfers to Milan. On the spotlight are the winners of the competition held in Hirosaki City under the “apple” theme, that became a lamp, then a table, chair, sandals, kimono. And a series of films that recount the Design Week in various cities of Japan.

Budbrand, the company dedicated to support the future generation of Japanese designers, presents a project inspired by the “Celebrations” theme, with gift-objects to give joy to whoever receives them.

Yoy, extremely young and award-winning design studio from Tokyo, exhibits three new accessories, two lamps and one wall clock, and introduces for the first time ever the updated and renovated edition of an innovative speaker that combines sound and visual elements.

The itinerary ends with a tribute to one of the most important Japanese designers of the 20th century, “Homage to Kuramata”, a poetic installation curated by Antonio Facco, admirer of Shiro Kuramata’s work (1934 – 1991).
