Tokyo Designers Week Highlights

Genetically engineered plants, computer-generated children and artistic prosthetics in this week's look at the web

As usual, the projects at this year’s celebration in Aoyama upstaged all preconceived definitions of art and design. From giant cosmic babies to fantastic metallic origami cases, expertly refurbished shipping containers, haunting sculptors and ghostly projections, The Verge has dozens of great photos that offer a peek into what the TDW experience was like this year. The Japan-based designers mastered all matter of ultra-practical, pristinely attractive and nonsensically amazing design, and the photo essay covers it all.
