The Japan Foundation will present the exhibition “Japanese Design Today 100,” open June 27 to July 19 at UCLA’s Department of Architecture & Urban Design at Perloff Hall.
This exhibition showcases the designscape of contemporary Japan through 100 objects of Japanese design: 89 objects created since 2010 that are well known in Japan, as well as 11 objects that represent the origin of Japanese post-war modern product design.
Since 2004, the previous version of this exhibition has traveled around the world fascinating viewers in many countries, including Egypt, India, and Russia. The Japan Foundation has updated and reorganized the entire exhibition to reflect the most innovative and well-made objects in the world created by Japanese designers over the past 10 years.
