RCA-IIS Tokyo Design Lab will make the future.

The Royal College of Art is very excited to co-found the RCA-IIS Tokyo Design Lab with the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS) at the University of Tokyo. The School of Design at the RCA offers unique approaches to design and innovation that complement the outstanding scientific and engineering research from IIS. Together we aim to create more holistic and ground-breaking, real-world innovations to meet some of the strategic global challenges faced by Japan and the world beyond.

We will also create a new diversity of thought and culture, providing a melting pot for the exchange of ideas. This open collaboration will see the next generation of thinkers, researchers and designers working together and with the local community and industry to form deeper networks and understanding of possibilities for the world. Professor Miles Pennington Head of Programme Innovation Design Engineering School of Design - Royal College of Art
