Exhibition "Future Elements: Experimental Laboratory for Prototyping in Science and Design"

March 29 - September 8, 2024

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT Gallery 1 & 2

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT holds the exhibition "Future Elements: Experimental Laboratory for Prototyping in Science and Design" from March 29, 2024. The exhibition director, Shunji Yamanaka, is a design engineer working in a wide range of industrial products, and studying prototypes crystallized from cutting-edge technologies.
What kind of future do we see? This question might sound too vast and vague. Perhaps its contours cannot even be imagined. Yet that is exactly why creators dream such numerous possibilities. Envisaging a world more beautiful, more surprising and more attractive than what we have now, they test this future through prototyping. We may not have a clear image of what is in store, but we can delineate parts, on the basis of what has already been invented. These objects we call "Future Elements."
The exhibition centers on Yamanaka's prototypes and robots, from initial sketches made in collaboration with fellow researchers at his university lab, through to completion. Also included are collaborative works by seven teams of designer-creators and scientist-engineers from different fields. Exhibits come from encounters of pioneering gaze in cutting-edge technological research and design. This is what we mean by "Future Elements."
The exhibition will be a place where divergent viewpoints interact, and where the imagination runs freely. We hope visitors will enjoy engaging with all these possibilities, woven through a combination of science and design. Those coming to the exhibition will be exposed to visions of designs that advance towards a future which we cannot yet see.
