21_21 DESIGN SIGHT has received the generous support of the many corporations and individuals who work with us to operate the venue. At present, we have two types of Partners: Corporate Partners for corporations and organizations, and Personal Partners for individuals. We hope to achieve making even more high-quality exhibitions with those who support our activities.

Corporate Partner

Corporate Partner is a program that enables us to collaborate with corporations that constitute a large basis of Japan's making things. Exhibitions and a variety of programs create interactions between corporations and creators; and also provide a platform through which to display the process of their collaborations.

(As of January 2019)

Personal Partner

Personal Partner is a program for individuals who wish to support the future of design with us. This program will make you feel and enjoy design in a much closer way through the special programs and privileges we only offer to our personal partners. We hope that you will join us as a personal partner to support, together, the development of a design culture.
