The tenth edition of Design Tokyo, the event that every year brings to the capital of Japan the best of design objects, expressly selected by a commission of designers and stylists in charge of ensuring an event without equal in terms of quality and innovation, opens on Wednesday 26 June. Hosted at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition centre, within LIFESTYLE EXPO TOKYO 2019, known for 13 years as one of the main business venues in Japan, will see the presence of about 1,610 exhibitors and a flow of visitors that will be around 55,000.
The Japanese fair attracts every year the main buyers who come in large numbers in search of new suppliers and the latest news in the field of design and lifestyle, offering the opportunity for new products to enter the Japanese market of conscious design.

This is mainly due to the rigorous selection made by a jury of leading experts, designers and stylists, established to maintain the high quality of the exhibitions and this year sees the presence of five famous names in the design industry: Paul Galloway, Collection Specialist for the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA); Kazuo Kawasaki, director of the PhD design program at Osaka University and Nagoya City University; Fumio Takashima, president of BALS Corporation - leader in furniture imports since 1990; interior stylist Tomomi Nagayama and finally Yasumichi Morita, designer and CEO of GLAMOROUS co.,ltd.
Not to forget the Design Tokyo Products Award, which will be given to those design products considered most "marketable" among those on display. The winners of the award will be chosen by the Selection Committee, and will be unveiled in the Special Gallery within Design Tokyo during the opening day of the fair.
In addition to this, the exhibition will feature 8 different exhibitions dedicated to the various design objects that can be found on the market: from textiles to fashion accessories, from interior to outdoor products, from decorations to products for children.
Design Tokyo is so ready to be again this year the most important event of the Japanese summer that no one can give up.
