From 23 October to 6 November, DESIGNART Tokyo is rebooting design and art in Tokyo across more than 60 venues throughout the city. Through their annual festival, they seek to redefine the realms of design and art to spread the enriching impact of 'DESIGNART' on our lives. Over twelve days, Tokyo transforms into an art museum, allowing everyone to discover the creations of over 100 talented artists and designers all over the city.

"DESIGNART is a new word that redefines the things that touch us and bring emotion to our everyday lives through function and beauty." - DESIGNART Tokyo

Not only does the city become an art and design haven, but DESIGNART Tokyo expands the possibilities of communication with a cloud system to allow the viewing and purchasing of works online in a 360-degree view and 3D walk-through of the spaces. There also will be presentations by exhibitors and an online conference for online visitors to participate in.

This year, the festival revolves around three themes that reflect the new normal in the world today: 'Tokyo's Reboot of the Culture of Design and Art', 'Puncturing Boundaries', and 'The New Workstyle'. 

The world's largest furniture trade fair at the Milan Design Week was cancelled this year, causing significant movement of the furniture design industry to come to a halt. However, DESIGNART Tokyo offers an opportunity for these designers to bring their works to the global stage with the 'Reboot' exhibition. Under the theme of 'Tokyo's Reboot of the Culture of Design and Art', the exhibition features new works by YOY, the collaboration of denis guidone and Arita, and Shunya Sugawara at Jasmac Aoyama.

In 'Puncturing Boundaries', DESIGN ART Gallery showcases innovative works by up-and-coming designers and artists at Omotesando Hills, a city of mixed cultures located in the centre of Omotesando. This exhibition features works by up-and-coming designers and artists from Japan as well as overseas. Creations from these international designers, such as Batten and Kamp and Yasuhiro Suzuki, move across the boundary of design and art and allow visitors to feel the full effect of DESIGNART Tokyo in one place.

In an attempt to redefine the new style of the home office, 'The New Workstyle' theme features designs that aid in dealing with the changes in the work environment. The Home Office Exhibition is held at the World Kita Aoyama Building, which is known as an incubation space, and features designers such as Shuhei Kamiya, Muuto, and Varier
