Now in its 12th year, Design Touch is an innovative art event held in and around Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi. This year’s theme is Ideas of the Future, with a focus on exploring art and ideas through the five senses.

One of the highlights of 2018 will be the Park Pack – a series of containers, tools and objects that can be used to transform the lawn area into a variety of social spaces like playgrounds or a cinema. The project is a creation of Ultra Public Project it reclaims space for social use in a flexible and creative way. Nearby, Swell is a creative reflection of weather, allowing wind and light to become visual experiences thanks to a reactive mesh design from We +.

Austrian creatives Ars Electronica have teamed up with the event creators to make Mirai no Gakkou (School of the Future) – a study of the future and AI in the work place. Alongside the main exhibitions will be the NTT DOCOMO Design exhibit, The Good Design Exhibition 2018 and the awarding of the Tokyo Midtown Award.
