21_21 DESIGN SIGHT opened in March 2007.

The story behind the opening of 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT goes back to the 1970s, when its Founder Issey Miyake started to discuss the importance of establishing a design museum in Japan with Isamu Noguchi, Ikko Tanaka, Shiro Kuramata, and Tadao Ando. 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT sprang from that discussion and became a nexus from which to search, find, and create the ongoing role of design. Design is a process that enriches life and expands the potential for thoughts and actions.

The Board of Directors is comprised of Issey Miyake, Taku Satoh, and Naoto Fukasawa, three designers who are well acquainted with the contemporary status of design and the creative scene; and journalist Noriko Kawakami who acts as Associate Director. 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT has introduced numerous ideas and proposed a variety of design solutions to the world through 34 exhibitions. Each exhibition opened a dialogue on our life, society and culture from design point of view. In honor of the 10th anniversary. Taku Satoh has been named as its overall Director.

On March 31, 2017, we will open Gallery 3. Here, we will implement experimental programs in close collaboration with corporations, schools and cultural institutions throughout the world. We wanted to expand our space so all could experience the power of design.

21_21 DESIGN SIGHT continues to evolve, treasuring the decade that is now behind it and always looking toward the future.
