We have an amazing set of presenters including Lady Gaga’s shoe designer - Noritaka Tatehana, digital designer for U2, Jamiroquai, OKGO - Moritz Waldemeyer and Swedish design and architecture superstars Claesson Koivisto Rune. It's going to be quite an evening, albeit with an early start, so get your 'leaving work early' memo in now!

Date: Monday 16th - Doors open at 16:30 (4:30pm); opening ceremony from 17:00 (5:00pm) to 17:20 (5:20pm); presentations begin 17:30 sharp (5:30pm)! Entrance fee is free, Drink & Food ticket sets are ¥1000 (¥500 x 2) - no need to register - just come down on the night! A great after-party with DJ Quietstorm is planned, so come and join an amazing PechaKucha Night and celebrate the start of DESIGNART - Tokyo’s new design event happening in over 70 locations around Tokyo from October 16th - 22nd!

The lineup of presenters will be updated over the coming weeks, and make sure to follow us on FacebookTwitter, or our Tokyo blog for all the news, and more info on the presenters.
