DESIGN Two Eras [60s vs 00s]: Japan Design Museum Project
The Council of the Design Association of Japan (D-8), a collective entity of 8 design associations under supervisory of METI, held an exhibition titled “DESIGN Two Eras [60s vs 00s]: Japan Design Museum Project” and related events to promote its goal of establishing Japan’s first comprehensive design museum. To coinside with the exhibition, D-8 published an unprecedented book edited by unique perspectives. It offers insightful suggestions to examine the history and future design by introducing selected works from 8 disciplines in two eras – 1960s and 2000s.
