As a part of Tokyo Design Week, we were invited by The British Council and Tokyo-based design studio E&Y to be a part of the Mark-ing exhibition.
The exhibition was designed as a conceptual idea to compare and contrast British and Japanese design and designers, looking into the inspirations these designers use as well as the products they produce. Curated by Max Fraser and Tsuyoshi Matsuzawa and supported by The British Council, the results were fascinating.
Hannah was in Tokyo throughout the exhibition and participated in a number of talks and discussions around the exhibition, alongside British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert.
