Quadro Slim

Quadro Slim
Evaluation by judges

This glass partition with minimal but sophisticated design is represented by a large glass surface embraced by a thin frame, which creates a connection between spaces. Glass variations including clear, white and bronze are offered to suit varied purposes and atmospheres. While being see-through, this unique and modern-style partition comparts a space effectively.

SPARY

SPARY
Evaluation by judges

Generally, front doors consist of a number of parts including a panel, hinges and a frame, etc. but SPARY looks uncomplicated, being just a simple panel with no frame. Unnecessary and obtrusive lines and parts around an entrance can be eliminated by this ultimate simple door, which I highly appreciate.

LAMINA

LAMINA
Evaluation by judges

This marquee with a minimal but sophisticated design is made by combining an ultra-thin plate and a robust bracket. It is cleverly designed to be off one’s vision at eye level.

Ospole Slim

Ospole Slim
Evaluation by judges

In consideration of the mainstream trend for open exteriors and a decreased popularity of gates and fences, functional gate poles are already a necessity in Japanese housing, and manufacturers have launched a number of functional gate poles in the market. In such market circumstances, however, this Ospole Slim is said to be produced in pursuit of “a design representing the essence of an object through trimming unnecessary fat in terms of functions, decorations and costs” and with a focus on materials and details therein, resulting in a unique and streamlined aesthetic style. This product is a highly valuable addition in exterior spaces unified with housing buildings designed by architects. The blank space for affixing a separately-created nameplate is also a sensible idea.

Ospole Matt White

Ospole Matt White
Evaluation by judges

While most functional gate poles, which are essential pieces in open exterior design, are made of aluminum, the Ospole Matte White is steel-based to satisfy designers and end users who prefer detailed and quality textured materials. Minimal intercom and post functions are incorporated into its sharp and concise form in matte white with few decorative elements. This is one kind of industrial product that has been latently wanted but not realized. Due to its subdued but steady presence, this functional gate pole is compatible with exterior designs that convey a strong impression, and it inspires designers.

Affilato

Affilato
Evaluation by judges

When considering a unit kitchen, there wasn’t any category for a steel mini-kitchen until now. The workmanship in finishing of details is also unique to steel. The steel unit is not too sharp and the workmanship is just right and satisfying.>More information

Kubire Vanity

Kubire Vanity
Evaluation by judges

A furniture-like wash basin changes its existing image. The top board flows beautifully from the top surface into the basin and the side slit skillfully regulates a sense of volume. This effect makes the overall proportion of the washbasin appear sleek, including the storage space.>More information

Fine

Fine
Evaluation by judges

This product, rather than existing as a sink, has the appearance of water flowing naturally from the top board itself into a pool. Because the thickness of the top board is a single integrated shape, it inspires imagination on the possibilities of the wash basin. This time the basin in the frame as the base, however with the thickness of the top board itself as the base for the pedestal unit, it makes you imagine the possibilities for the future. >More information

Borde

Borde
Evaluation by judges

The wash basin bowl has a little more volume. In the surrounding counter and shelf area of the wash basin, soap, toothbrushes, and other things are scattered. When such small items are placed on the border, this single integrated form coordinates the area around the basin area and give an impression of smartly being organized.>More information

Liscio

Evaluation by judges

The thin integrated top board and wash basin bowl have a sense of volume that you cannot imagine from the appearance that gives a pleasant feeling. The texture of the matte finish also fits well for the smoothness from the top board to the bowl. >More information

Lepto counter

Lepto counter
Evaluation by judges

The ability to scale the space of the toilet area has been realized. From a tiny space to a very large space, functionality is sleekly delivered and has the ability to correspond to any situation. The appearance of the balance between the box of water wash area and the top board is important but can be cut in order to match the space. It has been adjusted so that the balance of both can be finely done. The workmanship in the proportion is marvelous.>More information

Tubo

Tubo
Evaluation by judges

Constructed of only the 10mm and 21mm cylindrical combination, the design does not show screws and other structures. Although the viewpoint for mainstream sliver bathroom accessories can be evaluated, there is room to consider another idea for form and finish that could further increase the quality. >More information

Osso

Osso
Evaluation by judges

This 100% stainless steel-made frame kitchen looks like a product for professionals. As the kitchen is strong and resistant to water, it is ideal for people whose cooking is of the professional style. The storage under cooking equipment, also 100% stainless steel-made, can keep heavy cooking utensils, and features a fully open design that gives the user much freedom. As the back is also finished neatly, the kitchen fits a center kitchen layout. The highly simple design and neatness and strength of the product make for a long use.>More information

Stainless unit shelf kitchen

Stainless unit shelf kitchen
Evaluation by judges

This product was created by redesigning a stainless steel unit shelf of Muji into a kitchen. Users can choose and freely combine shelves and parts to suit their purpose. With conventional kitchens, it is difficult for the user to make modifications after installation. The design of the product has expanded its potential for customization.>More information

Curvy

Curvy
Evaluation by judges

While the shapes of washbasins are diverse, it is difficult to design them in such a way to strike a balance between design quality and functionality. In terms of function, the bowl should be deep to restrict the spattering of water and facilitate cleaning. But such a design results in a dull impression due to a generally thick counter. This product features a design integrating the counter with the bowl. A raised edge secures a certain bowl depth while making the appearance light and elegant. The counter surface is linked tangentially with the raised thin edge with round corners. This design creates an impression of gentleness and delicateness.>More information

Lepto inwall

Lepto inwall
Evaluation by judges

The Japanese-style toilets demand washbasins of a buried type. Various products of this kind have been introduced to date. As toilets without tanks have recently become mainstream, many plans feature separately installed washbasins. This product is entirely resin-molded to give a stylish impression. A narrow space requires neatly designed items such as this. The product would be better if it were no less durable and no less easy to clean than a ceramic bowl.>More information

Posta de Muro

Posta de Muro
Evaluation by judges

Mailboxes of a condominium are important as an element of the spatial design of the building. In many cases, however, such elements as the opening and the lock give jarring visual impressions. These mailboxes are designed as if they were wall panels, using flat panels with little unevenness and few joints for their front.>More information

Evaluation by judges

Various materials have come to be used in the maturing system kitchen industry. However, this product readopts stainless steel as material, and conforms to a basic style as kitchen. The 100% stainless steel-made product gives a solid impression. Though its design is simple, it has recommendable features based on the latest technology, such as a silent rail. What is hoped for from the product is a greater number of choices in equipment.>More information

Handrail

Handrail
Evaluation by judges

In designing handrails, the focus tends to be laid on user-friendly features, such as the elimination of projections at both ends to prevent sleeves from being caught. This product returns to the fundamental idea that a material should be chosen for the sake of design, and uses materials that are friendly to architects and space designers. Also, it reviews the structure and succeeds in cost reduction.>More information

Groovy8

Groovy8
Evaluation by judges

This product uses a molding method called vacuum infusion back to realize a seamless appearance. While the product is simple, its overall design is beautiful and well coordinated, with considerations given to such actions as sitting, straddling, and holding. Another attraction is unconventionally reasonable costs.>More information

Ellissecocco

Ellissecocco
Evaluation by judges

This product has a drain outlet as large as that of a kitchen, which makes the user feel safer. It may also serve as a party sink. Resin concrete, instead of ceramic, is used as material to secure the dimensional accuracy of the drain while achieving the feel of ceramic. As resin concrete is recyclable, highly durable, and easy to process, it will be used for various future products.>More information

Compact Kitchen 430

Compact Kitchen 430
Evaluation by judges

Judges appreciated the simple design of the product, which does not have any wasteful parts. It appears that the designer gave much consideration to details, such as the material (100% stainless steel-made) and the handhold. As the focus is laid on a neat design for a good appearance, the product is suitable for installation in an office, a living room, and other places requiring an excellent interior design. The apparent versatility of the product gives a good impression. It looks neat, and is easy to clean.>More information
