Good Design Exhibition 2009 at Tokyo Midtown Design Hub

This year, the Good Design Award has conducted user-conscious screenings "from the viewpoint of near-future citizens," for users are not only the recipients of products and services, but also the ones who have the potential to enhance their values. In addition, Frontier Design Award has been newly established this year, with the purpose of promoting designs that are pregnant with ideas for future lifestyles.

On view at the Good Design Exhibition 2009 are about 80 works, centering on special award-winning pieces honored with the Good Design Gold Prize. This exhibition aims to share with the audience the fascination and possibilities of creative future-oriented design by disseminating each designer's message and important design points that have the power to appeal to our society at large.
