Taking place from August 6 to October 30, 2014 at the Japan Foundation in Toronto, the exhibition Japanese Design Today 100 was first organized in 2004 and has been touring the world for the last 10 years. This is a newly organized version of the same exhibition, featuring 100 of the finest examples of Japanese design with a focus on everyday products. It combines superbly designed products of recent years with a group of modern designs from the 1950s through the 1990s that had a significant influence on the design of today.

The design of household products acts as a mirror, reflecting the life of our society and the personal lifestyles of individuals. These designs give a vivid picture of the hopes and dreams of the people who use the products as well as the designers and corporations who create them. It is hoped that this exhibition will increase visitors’ knowledge of the recent trends and features of Japanese design and at the same time give them insights into the nature of today’s Japanese culture.
