Good design

An expo that does what it says on the packet.

I was combining working on a suddenly requested job and child-minding over the weekend so couldn't get to the Good Design Expo at Tokyo Big Sight. Pink Tentacle have a selection of the range of things on display. Some – like the wooden bicycle or takeaway boxes designed in traditional Japanese style shown here – look good.

(Others maybe fun design, but do we need packaging peanuts that use the letters LOVE or flavoured tongue cleaners, or will they just filter into the plastic dump in the Pacific? Or… why should I pick on them?) All-in-all, I'd like to have gone. Not that I'd complain about either the child-minding or extra work!
