bring a design souvenir back from tokyo! in designboom’s unique and world famous market exhibitions, visitors are not only able to meet the young avant-garde designers and become familiar with their work but also buy self-produced or limited edition pieces directly from the designers. profits through sales can be used towards partially covering any travel costs.

over the intense days of exhibiting and socializing, the designers have the chance to discuss their work with other like-minded professionals, customers, manufacturers, distributors, press and museum curators – verifying their designs and their packaging credentials.

after new york, sydney, saint-etienne, melbourne, copenhagen, stockholm and seoul, this unique formula now sees its 21st edition, since our very first mart in new york in 2005. you can see a line-up of some of our previous marts here.
