The design lover's fantasy destination

21_21 Design Sight is a design-focused museum created by world-renowned architect Tadao Ando in collaboration with fashion designer Issey Miyake and influenced by sculptor Isamu Noguchi. It opened in March 2007 and is part of the Tokyo Midtown complex in Roppongi .

Don't Miss

  • Spending time in the small, tranquil park surrounding the museum
  • The roof inspired by Issey Miyake's "A Piece of Cloth" concept

How to Get There

The museum is accessible by train or taxi.

The museum is a short walk from Roppongi Station on the Oedo Line and an easy 10-minute walk from either the Hibiya Line exits of Roppongi Station or Nogizaka Station on the Chiyoda Line.

A meeting of design masters

Miyake and Ando envisioned a space that would offer a fresh perspective on how to interpret and appreciate design.

Most of the exhibitions and workshops here focus on the theme of “everyday life,” and explore the often underappreciated world of design that is hidden in plain sight.

An underground gallery space

Set on the edge of a small park, a large portion of the gallery space is underground. The hand-sanded steel roof design was inspired by Issey Miyake's A-POC "A Piece of Cloth" concept, which explores the space between the body and clothing. The gallery also hosts a variety of design-focused activities including talks and workshops, most overseen by designers.
