Located in the West Halls of Tokyo Big Sight, Design Festa vol.43 will feature the individually unique self-expression of more than 12,000 groups, companies, schools and individuals via a countless number of artistic outlets.
Artists, designers, musicians, students, companies and more from a myriad of countries are all here displaying the endless array of styles and talents of over 12,000 people.
Interior design, performance art and electric installations are just a sample of what can be found in the Low-Light Area, an extension of the main Booth Area and a zone entirely unique to Design Festa.
During the event’s two days, over 60 different live paint artists scattered throughout the venue transform giant, wall-sized canvases into never-before-seen works of art right before your eyes.
Featuring a wide variety of international cuisine, food stalls at Design Festa can be found on the fourth floor in both the Indoor and Outdoor Food Court as well as in two different Cafe Areas.
From acrobatics and ballet to kids’ fashion shows and original music, the Show Stage offers a nonstop parade of wildly varying, live entertainment.
Fun for children and parents alike, the Workshop Area is a unique opportunity where visitors themselves become the artists.
