I’m so very excited about the 2nd prototype EXHIBITION that is scheduled to take place at Gotanda Sonic in Tokyo. Last year’s was great and I’m sure this year will be even better! Thirty (mostly) Japanese designeres & architects will be showcasing prototypes of new work in an attempt to deconstruct the final product and focus on the process. Here is a sneak peak of some of the work that will be on display from October 30th.

And it looks like Jean Snow, a respected blogger/writer in the Japanese design community, has joined the exhibition committee!

Peeler; a set of greeting cards designed by Akihiro Kumagaya. Love these! Can’t wait for them to be commercialized.

ASO / TANE by Naoya Misawa. This is an awesome concept, born from a will to escape from the hegemony of center-based tea cup saucers!
