Using design as a way to reflect on the experiences and situations happening in their everyday lives, the designers featured in this exhibition capture the little moments in life: daydreams, fond farewells, mundane routine; feelings of uncertainty, curiosity, and boredom; times of transition, struggle, and joy. These day-to-day makings give insight into the life, personality, and experiences of each individual designer and tells the story of everyday life in Japan. Exhibition Image: Momoe Narazaki, 2014.
