Since its launch in April 2007, Tokyo Midtown Design Hub has played the central role in design network, bringing together design institutions in three different fields; promotion, profession and research / education. It connects "people," "business" and "knowledge" through design and conveys information by exhibitions, seminars and publications.
The HUB, originating from "axle of the wheel," is where many routes meet. Tokyo Midtown Design Hub takes on challenges as the dynamic design center of connecting people and creating new movements.
