What is "design"? What does a "designer" do?
"Design" that fosters children's free creativity. Let's have fun and experience how to create ideas in the DLX Design Lab style of the University of Tokyo, using the "something" that you use every day as a theme!

DLX aims to create new value by incorporating a design perspective into superior technology through an initiative called "Design-Led X" promoted by the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo.
DLX DESIGN ACADEMY works with the Royal College of Art in the UK to promote design education outside the campus. The three instructors of this program are conducting design research and activities at DLX Design Lab.
