British and Japanese designers Risa Fukui, Koichi Futatsumata, Yuri Suzuki and Hannah Martin explore subtle differences and parallels between their respective cultures and the influence this has had on their creative process and work. The discussion will explore social, educational and cultural differences that have impacted on their work alongside the shared ideas and global relationships that connect contemporary designers across the world. The discussion will be chaired by Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, Design, Fashion at the British Council.
This special talk is part of the programme of events accompanying the Japan-UK design exhibition Mark-ing which will be at Gallery Libby Sellers from 10 - 25 January. Mark-ing is presented by the British Council and E&Y co., ltd. Featuring 16 designers (8 from the UK, 8 from Japan).
