'Designing Japan' presents renowned designer Kenya Hara's vision of how his industry can support Japan in crafting a future founded on a unique philosophy of beauty as well as crowd-sourced wisdom from around the world. A master collaborator, meticulous organiser, and globally conscious innovator, Hara draws on more than three decades of participations in design work and exhibition curating, as well as deep professional interaction with creators from many fields.

In 'Designing Japan' Hara reveals methods that make publicly accessible aesthetic inquiries of how this island nation will proceed as its population ages, other nations take over manufacturing, and technology develops. Illustrations and examples recognise successful problem-solving through design, proving that it is a living, changing industry that remains relevant not in spite of, but as a partner to, advancing technology.

About Kenya Hara

Hara, Kenya
Kenya Hara, geboren 1958, ist ein japanischer Gestalter und Professor an der Musashino Art Universität in Tokio. Seit 2002 ist er künstlerischer Leiter von MUJI. Sein Interesse galt seit jeher den Umständen und Gegebenheiten von Design, und nicht den «Dingen» selbst. Diese Prinzipien zeigen sich in den vielen, internationalen Ausstellungen, die sich seinen Werken widmen. Er wurde mit vielen Preisen ausgezeichnet, darunter den Japanese Cultural Design Award.
