designboom marts are an unprecedented opportunity to meet the young designers and become familiar with their work. the group exhibitions see international design professionals personally presenting their wares. (prototypes and/or limited edition pieces) along with, various-samples. the designers have the opportunity to meet and discuss with customers, manufacturers, distributors, press and museum curators – verifying their designs and their packaging credentials. mart visitors can purchase intelligent, useful and quirky items for a symbolic price, anywhere between 1,000-10,000 JPY.

the designboom marts are truly international – designers come from over 30 countries, and partially cover the travel costs through the sales that they make. over the intense days of exhibiting and socializing designers have the chance to discuss their work with other professionals from different cultural backgrounds.

the designboom mart is widely recognized as the ORIGINAL, the first ever design bazaar. in early 2005 designboom created a completely new formula of exhibition and since then we have organized over 20 international marts worldwide, that combine high-profile design with a popular street market setting, making up the cultural program of trade fairs.
