The latest exhibition at 21_21 Design Sight presents a dissection of design in products and brands you probably come across every day. “Design Anatomy: A method for seeing the world through familiar objects” gives us insights into the function and reasoning behind why things have been designed the way they are. It includes a close inspection on five products by Meiji, one being Kinoko no Yama, the mushroom-shaped chocolate snacks you always eye off at the konbini.
21_21 Design Sight is worth an ogle for its architecture alone. The exhibition is open from 10am-7pm. It’s closed on Tuesdays and between December 27 – January 3. General admission costs ¥1,100, university students get in for ¥800, and high school students for ¥500. Anyone younger gets in free.
