From 2018 to 2020, JAGDA aims to use the power of design to connect to support artists with disabilities and Paralympians. As the second initiative under this program, this exhibition features tumbler, an everyday product which encourages you to save resource and watch sports with. They are created by JAGDA designers from works by artists with disabilities from the Able Art Company. They will be exhibited and sold for charity over the course of the year, at the Design Hub and other locations throughout Japan. Making use of their skills in this field, designers participate as volunteers. A usage fee is paid to the artists. All proceeds from sales minus manufacturing costs will be donated to the Paralympians Association of Japan. We hope you will come to the exhibition and find something that you like.
