WHAT ARE THE KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS?

The KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS is a competition to attract beautifully functional product designs,
taking the best of the best to the actual consumer market.
Last year, we received a total of 1,307 entries from product designers in more than 44 countries, including Japan.
This level of interest shows just how much the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS has grown as an international product design competition.
We are looking for any and all ideas to turn into actual products.
