About DOOR to ASIA:
This is a designer residence program. Designers stay in Tohoku for certain days and will have an experience with host company, such as work experience and home stay, and will make a communication design with the theme “how to communicate their product to designer’s country in Asia.”
We invite 8 young designers (20’s - 30’s) from 8 Asian countries.
The project itself is a program, but we are following up with the host company to make a design idea in real.
Currently we brought some products to international market and our project is expanding to other regions.
*Tohoku is an area got severe damage by earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
