Project Details


designing plus nine

Under the pandemic, it has become much more difficult to meet someone or go somewhere. It seems as if the distance between people has expanded. Yet people are always connected with each other via the Internet. However, the connection via the Internet can be easily “disconnected” by a simple push of a button. With this in mind, we’ve come up with the theme “connect and disconnect”. To respond to the theme, we, as a design club, will hold an exhibition including games and movies.

About the Group

Designing plus nine is a design club founded in 2007 by students from the University of Tokyo and Tokyo University of the Arts. We have three main goals: to work as a team to create works and projects for the school festival and other daily activities, to solve problems through design with companies and clubs, and to spread the value of design in the world. Based on these three principles, we carry out a variety of activities through design with the theme of "design for everyone".

What Connects Science to YOU?
We spend a lot of time hearing various kinds of information, but the way we receive it is different from person to person, from children to adults, and from scientists to artists. Especially in times of disaster or emergency, information is often complicated, which creates "an invisible world". In this year's project, we set the theme of "what connects science to us" and you will experience and consider it through highly interactive exhibits and games among various generations. Also, we plan to think together about how science and information should be grasped. In particular, we aim to collaborate with everyone who came to our booth by utilizing various online tools. We will deal with familiar themes such as "ad" and "origami (folding paper)" that both children and adults can enjoy!
