Good Design Expo 2009

The Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization (JIDPO) hosts an annual event to showcase well-designed products. At the Good Design Expo this year, over 2000 products under consideration for the Good Design Awards were shown to the public. And the Pink Tentacle were in attendance to snap photos of the eye-catching designs.

See more designs at Pink Tentacle. We’ll keep you updated with the winners when 1) we learn enough Japanese to navigate the Good Design Awards site or 2) the English part of the site gets updated.
