London, the Design Capital of the World
The British Embassy Tokyo has carried out UK design promotion over the past 10 years. In 2016, they decided to focus on the UK’s interior design capability to respond to the expected increase in demand for both new and renovated hotels and serviced apartments in the run up to Tokyo 2020, and delivered a Design is GREAT seminar in Tokyo in collaboration with the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) .
The event was held at the British designed Palace Hotel in Tokyo.
