Event History

Last year, we received a total of 1,377 entries from product designers in more than 54 countries. Past award winners have included hit products like the Kadokeshi eraser, Nameless Paints, and the True Measure ruler. We are looking for any and all ideas to turn into actual products. Be sure to submit your design for the KOKUYO DESIGN AWARDS 2021.

The world became new while we were totally unprepared for it. Before we are given time to think carefully about things,
what we like, dislike, agree with, disagree with,
our once - familiar everyday life continues to change.
So we try to catch up with the changes, and in our rush many ideas spring up and disappear.
What’s important in product design now
is to try to face the things around us anew.
To take a deep look at the value of continuing to be lastingly and broaly loved. To end not only with an idea, but to think through every detail,
to be persistent, and give shape to a product
