Designer Kenya Hara visits Google’s Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss his book “Designing Design.” This event took place on September 29, 2008, as part of the Authors@Google series.

Representing a new generation of designers in Japan, Kenya Hara pays tribute to his mentors, using long overlooked Japanese icons and images in much of his work. In Designing Design, he impresses upon the reader the importance of “emptiness” in both the visual and philosophical traditions of Japan, and its application to design, made visible by means of numerous examples from his own work: Hara for instance designed the opening and closing ceremony programs for the Nagano Winter Olympic Games 1998.
