~ DESIGN 50/50 Designs so far and in the future ~

What is a design that will last for the past 50 years and the next 50 years?

Let's sit down on the world's design vintage chair, which has been loved for 50 years! Let's sit in the world's classic vintage chair! And we will hold a contemporary craft design exhibition that will be the vintage of the future. Except for some, the chairs on display can be purchased. Photo books, art books, books on crafts, etc. are also on display, so please spend a relaxing time all day long by sitting on a chair. You can talk slowly with the artist himself. May the flowers bloom in the discussion of manufacturing.

On the day of the event, a "lively festival" will be held, with street live performances, various exhibitions, flea markets, and food sales.

You can visit famous designers in the world and hear directly from Mr. Nagai, who has collected chairs by seeing and hearing about the design and his personality. The collection ranges from those in the Museum of Modern Art in New York to unnamed chairs. In 1997, he was the first Japanese to receive the Danish "Furniture Award" in recognition of his achievements in popularizing design.
