The Good Design Award, which is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its establishment, has continued awarding “”good design”" ever since the establishment in 1957 of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry sponsored “”Good Design Selection System (popularly known as the G Mark Program).”"
Over this period, conditions in industry and society and the issues that we face have greatly changed, and the aim and role of design has also expanded accordingly. The Good Design Award has apprehended the signals coming from life and society at different times and has always confronted the question of “”what is good design?”" from within that context. We are told that this journey has been a “”milestone”" in the journey of industry and design.

In this exhibit, we look back upon the many different designs that have accompanied people’s lifestyles from period to period and introduce the designs receiving the Good Design Award and the Long Life Design Award in the four sections of “”Designs that Changed and Supported People’s Lifestyles,”" “”Progress in Life and Industry Guided by Design,”" “”Brands that Continue to be Loved and their Designs,”" and “”The Future of Touch.”"

Through its activities, the Good Design Award plans to continue advancing society through the power of designs that make visible the human beings’ desires for the future and draw the path of how to get there, while also expressing admiration and respect for our predecessors who constantly continued to envision and realize a richer life.
