This blog was originally started with the intention to feature our 'green' initiative in creating awesome and fascinating lighting sculptures using all parts of the plastic mineral water bottles. We hope to inspire people from all walks of life to view and re-think about using plastics in a different manner instead of just treating it as waste.
Selected artists of interest will also be featured on this blog to provide a wider range of artistic ideas from different fields.

DESIS NETWORK | Design for social innovation and sustainability

DESIS is a network of schools of design and other schools, institutions, companies and non-profit organizations interested in promoting and supporting design for social innovation and sustainability. It is a light, no-profit organization, conceived as a network of partners collaborating in a peer-to-peer spirit.It is articulated in several DESIS-Local (that are sub-networks within a specified local area). DESIS-International is therefore the framework where the different DESIS-Local coordinate themselves and where some global initiatives are taken.
DESIS-China aims to actively support design initiatives and projects in the field of design for social innovation and sustainability in China. That is, in the fields of the ecological reconversion of production and consumption systems, the social construction of services, and the balanced development of local areas. (more)

DESIGN HUB: About Tokyomidtown Design Hub

Taking their opening of offices in the Tokyo Midtown complex as an opportunity, the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, the Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc., and Kyushu University Faculty of Design are embarking on a new activity that underscores their respective features, yet is collaborative at the same time. The conceptual image associated with this collaboration overlaps with that of a wheel that moves Japanese design, ways of life and industry, as well as society as a whole, forward. We therefore named the locus of this activity the Design Hub.

We intend to use this hub as a means of linking Japan and the world, as we go forward in developing the future of design.

TAB Venue – Tokyo Midtown Design Hub

Taking their opening of offices in the Tokyo Midtown complex as an opportunity, the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, the Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc., and Kyushu University Faculty of Design are embarking on a new activity that underscores their respective features, yet is collaborative at the same time. The conceptual image associated with this collaboration overlaps with that of a wheel that moves Japanese design, ways of life and industry, as well as society as a whole, forward. The locus of this activity was named the Design Hub.

Society in the 21st century demands the latent potential of design to be further exerted. Linkages between various spheres of human activity in a cross-disciplinary manner are anticipated, together with proposals that will benefit society.

The Design Hub is the world's first attempt to fulfill these expectations. It is intended as a means of linking Japan and the world, as we go forward in developing the future of design.
