The design studio contributes for community デザインスタジオがコミュニティのために貢献

I learned about “ethic” in Uni class.
The main theory is that designer produce not only new products, but also the work is design for people’s life.
Following the ethic theory, designing people’s life style could be more happy, fairly, healthy and safety.

This design studio start this project. I respect their contribution for community.
