"1% for Art " Exhibition Curated by Design Pier at the Designart Tokyo 2019

About the exhibition of "1% for Art"

Design Pier proudly partners with DESIGNART TOKYO to curate and organize the Design Week’s main event joining the "1% for Art" program and presenting a divers array of highly creative design objects by design studios from the Asian continent.

The exhibition proposes a dialogue that reflects on the changes in international design, provoked by an alternative design thinking originating in Asia.

While design in Asia used to be conservative and risk averse, the new generation has a hunger for reinventing, rediscovering and imposing its own unique design thinking.

New Asian designers proudly embrace their traditions and boldly transform it into objects. Their works show strong marks of their respective cultures.

At the same time Western designers go beyond simple imitation and they genuinely integrate the philosophy and the attitude of different design trends in Asia or influence a new design thinking while collaborating with Asian designers.
