Award Winners

 

Design and paper are the keywords that interconnect all the product designs of Designphil. These are global concepts that include the following: manufacturing original paper; providing products such as letters and notebooks for assisting paper-based communication; and developing the right products for the situation where used.

Introduced below are some of the designs for which Designphil has received awards both in Japan and overseas as a result of our design activities based on this concept.

 About design awards and the almanacs contain our produsts
 
Good Design Award
 

This was instituted by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry in 1957. Since then, the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization has selected and awarded creative, excellent designs and products every year. Following privatization in 1998, it became the Good Design Award. Award-winning products are permitted to use the "G-mark". One of the special awards, the Long-selling Good Design Award, is presented to products that have been manufactured and sold for more than 10 years since first being selected, if they pass a reexamination.
