MDSG
(Miyake Design Studio Gallery)

The MIYAKE DESIGN STUDIO opened this gallery in 1994 with a design based on paper tubes by Shigeru Ban. Named MDSG since 1998, the gallery has served to spread the word about design, art, and crafts of all descriptions, and has hosted a diverse range of exhibitions. With the establishment of THE MIYAKE ISSEY FOUNDATION in 2004, MDSG was phased out in December 2005 but its activities formed the basis of its successor institution, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, which opened in 2007.
