Held in Tokyo in October and November, the Good Design Award Exhibition 2013 was a celebration of award-winning design, hosted by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

In a move to make the Good Design exhibition more accessible to all – in particular the general public – this year the winning products and designs from the 2013 awards were on display on multiple levels of the Tokyo Midtown in the Roppongi district of Minato, Tokyo.

Designers of the Best 100 presented their designs live to an invitation-only audience of Good Design business and media guests in five-minute presentations.

Products for all aspects of daily life across product design, communication design, architecture and interaction design were on display. Yamaha, Toyota, Nikon and other leading Japanese/global brands exhibited their latest concepts and ideas in the indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces.

Awards ranged from the top 100 Best winners to the Global Design 2013 award – presented to Google Maps. Special awards were announced in early November – including the Good Design Gold Awards, and Design for the Future Award.
