Since its establishment in 1953, JAPAN DESIGN COMMITEE based in Matsuya Ginza has been active in supporting Japanese design communities through recognizing excellent products and hosting various design showcases. The Exhibition brings together inspiring works of sketches, drawings and models born from the process of creation by the active member designers belonging to a wide range of generations. We hope this exhibition will serve as catalyst for connecting people from different generations and genres, and trigger to benefit our future with a rich collection of Japanese design aesthetics.

Translation is a process that supports communication between two parties that are otherwise unable to understand each other. This exhibition presents the possibilities for acceptance and embrace of this mutual incomprehension. Taking the role of translation as a kind of "communication design," a space is created that allows the visitor to experience the mysterious nature of language that we are unaware in our lives and the excitement of new discoveries of meaning or misunderstandings that emerge from this insight.
