Over the past decades, Japan has become a leader society at design and industrial production, but especially at industrial development, which has successfully brought together both Occidental science and technology with Asiatic philosophy and history. Japanese design assumes the service of every aspect of modern life, still being a visual way that expresses universal truths and cultural values, with unique sensibility and mixture. Japan has contributed consistently to improve people’s lifestyles beyond limits, from the design of simple day-to-day use objects up to the most sophisticated ones, becoming an example of frontline design.
