DAS Philosophy

Our philosophy is to contribute to society with a focus on all kinds of design. We are convinced that design is the core of society, community, environment, and culture, and therefore our goal is to create a better future by bringing together designers (D members), academic authorities (A members) and sponsoring companies (S members).

Our policy

(1) We want to train and instruct young people who are studying design, with the aim of revitalizing the design world in the future.
(2) Our goal is to create a beautiful lifestyle with a focus on Japanese culture.
(3) Based on these, we encourage our members to organize symposiums, forums, product displays, exhibitions, concerts, and showrooms to interact with other members and organizations to promote intellectual and creative exchange.
