I’m writing the Japanese book of “Design Management in the 21st Century.“ I will open the era of post-Design Thinking and propose the possibility and role of design to design for the 22nd Century. This book will be published in 2020.
I gave a talk about the intersection between business and design in the Business Design Talk vol.03 in Tokyo. Through my design projects and practices, I discussed with Yasuhiro Sasaki (Business director at Takram) and Prof. Hironori Iwasaki (Business design director at Hakuhodo).
As a visiting lecturer at Kyoto Design Lab, I designed the speculative design workshop called "Magazine from the Future" and gave a lecture to students at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Students speculate possible futures from historical city Kyoto and their works are exhibited in Medium.
You can see Dutch students' critical interventions in the context of Japan!
I and Prof. Daijiro Mizuno held the symposium called “Some Recent Agendas in Design Research -Transitional, Circular, Speculative and Discursive-” at Kyoto Design Lab.
