Lecture of Eisuke Tachikawa at the Professional Forum of the ONE DESIGN WEEK 2016

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Design/Architecture

The 8th edition of the international festival for design and visual culture ONE DESIGN WEEK took place in Plovdiv (10-19 June), the European capital of Culture in 2019. In 2016 the theme of the festival was “Can I help you?” and the organizers tried to focus on the different faces design has nowadays. The main aim was to analyze its role within the social context. Part of the official festival program was a Professional Forum who gathered prominent names from the design field from all over the world: Eisuke Tachikawa (Japan), Adam Von Haffner (Denmark), Alice Rawsthorn (United Kingdom), Peter Marigold (United Kingdom), Stephen Serrato (USA), Pieter-Jan Pieters (The Netherlands). The lecture of Eisuke Tachikawa (the director of the Japanese design company NOSIGNER) managed to identify and respond to the social needs in its projects and its mission to provide meaningful social innovation in a variety of fields. Apart from enriching the knowledge of the public on the design practice in Japan, Eisuke Tachikawa had the chance to expand his own horizons, establishing new contacts with design professionals from different parts of the world.
