Mark-ing is organised by the British Council and E&Y co.,ltd until 25 Jan at Gallery Libby Sellers in London.

Curated by Tsuyoshi Matsuzawa and Max Fraser, this Japan/UK design exhibition aims at examining how the relationship can be tied up between the designers from both nations. It is an exhibition to see how each designer was inspired, consciously or un-consciously, and to see if those inspirations have been visualized or shaped,and also to see how global those factors were. Par of the show, Kouichi Okamoto’s new work “light of thought” is exhibited among others like Makoto Orisaki, Jo Nagasaka, Ryuji Nakamura, Risa Fukui, Koichi Futatsumata, Yuri Suzuki, .and Maiko Kurogouchi on the Japanese side, and Moritz Waldemeyer, Ismini Samanidou, Paul Cocksedge, Max Lamb, Geoffrey Mann, Helen Amy Murray, Hannah Martin and Benjamin Hubert on the British side. Until 28 Feb. Kyouei design has opened a pop-up shop and exhibition at whole space of the museum shop 2 of 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa.
