Tokyo Design Week, 30.10.-3.11.
Design Week is a very similar event to Design Tide, happening at the same time and focusing mainly on more established international and Japanese product design. Its main location is in Meiji Jingu Gaien, but satellites are spread around the whole city.
This year, Design Tide, the Tokyo based product design show, went into its fifth year. It's been interesting following this event the past 4 years and seeing it grow from a small insider event into a very mature exhibition. This year it somehow felt like already surpassing its bigger brother, the Design Week – a similar event held at the same time.
Hundreds of little handcrafted TiWiKi figures have been deployed across Shibuya. Finders can photograph, collect and release them elsewhere in town/the world. Their journeys get mapped at the code: TiWiKi site.
