21_21 DESIGN SIGHT is a venue to redirect our eyes to everyday things and events, and create various proposals and communicate numerous discoveries from the design point of view. Our aim is to promote understanding and interest in design by involving designers, company people, engineers, craftsmen, and the general public. 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT holds exhibitions devoted to the theme of “everyday life” with multidirectional programs such as talks and workshops.

When I think of design, I embrace images alive in freedom and energy. With “21_21 DESIGN SIGHT,” the goal is to reach across boundaries in bringing together craftsmen from all genres, conceiving new plans and moving to the creative process.
I believe that “21_21 DESIGN SIGHT” will emerge as a base for the designs that connect us to daily life, and in doing so, serve as a venue for discovering an endless stream of vital new patterns. Ultimately, the most important aspect of design is for the designers to continue to scope out promising new frontiers in their work.
“21_21 DESIGN SIGHT” is unlikely to exhibit creations that have already come to be recognized as design. Rather, it is positioned as a venue for reviewing and retooling “objects and ideas” from around the world, proceeding from the perspective of design.
*Please be advised that business hours may vary from shop to shop.
