This event has ended.

Tokyo Midtown Hall has been chosen as the main venue for the 4th edition of DesignTide Tokyo. DesignTide Tokyo is a trade show where designers from a variety of fields – from interior and product design, architecture, graphic design, to textiles, fashion and art - congregate and exhibit works created out of their serious design practices that make up the unique mix in Tokyo.

This edition will serve as an opportunity to reconsider design as a concept and way of thinking that anyone can share and participate in. DesignTide Tokyo will be a design-oriented event that gathers creators and artists with a sincere passion for design, linking creative talents, manufacturers, journalists and buyers from all over the world, connecting them to people and their everyday lives and spreading the word about their design activities. This is the kind of design hub that Design Tide Tokyo aims to become.
