Within the exhibition an example of contemporary work by each of the 16 designers(8 UK, 8 Japanese) is presented alongside a ‘fragment’ of their consciousness in the shape of a single object; through this the exhibition examines the designers’ inspiration, and the connections between their respective social backgrounds.
