Got Good Design Award 2015!

I got the Good Design Award!

Good Design Award is the Japanese comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system, operated by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

Akerun” a smart lock robot I designed for Photosynth Inc. has received the Good Design Award 2015. I really appreciate the people of the company for the opportunity to embody such a great concept into a product. The value of this product, I believe, is not composed only of the superficial design, but of the great combination of the beautiful UX/UI designs of the app that realize a high degree of usability and comfort, polite and friendly customer support, etc. all for the purpose of “the most smooth experience at a door without keys”.

For Akerun, I made the product design of the smart lock as well as the brochures, packages, pamphlets etc. and worked on its branding. Together with the company, we’ll be creating great stuff for many years to come! Also I’m personally thinking of making sooooo exciting stuff (IoT).

グッドデザイン賞獲りました!

この度、私がデザインした株式会社フォトシンス(Photosynth Inc.)のスマートロックロボット「Akerun」がグッドデザイン賞2015を受賞いたしました。受賞にあたっては、筐体デザインの機会を与えていただいた同社の皆様のご協力に非常に感謝しております。このプロダクトの価値は、『鍵を意識しない、最高の開閉体験』を実現すべく社員の方々が結集して作り上げられたものであり、使いやすさや心地よさを実現している素晴らしいアプリのUX/UIデザインや熱心で親切なサポートなどがあってのものだと信じています。

Akerunに関しては筐体だけではなくパッケージ、パンフレットのデザインやブランドを担当させていただきました。今後もプロダクトを中心にいいモノを作り出していきますので、応援お願い致します! 個人的にも超ワクワクするモノ創りを考えています。

red dot design concept award 2009

red dot design concept award 2009 winner

I can’t believe I won the red dot design concept award for the Looking Glass concept!! (I added some photos of the awarding ceremony on my Flickr.)

First of all, let me thank Radhika Seth (for everything), Mika Ueno and *momoc (for beautiful photos), Takashi Yamada (for first picking up and naming this gadget), Regina Teh (for inviting me for the competition) and my family (for letting me keep doing this crazy hobby).
This is really exciting for me because it’s the first award I won since I became a designer.

I added some new images and fixed a few old ones.

Dragging stuff like a building floor to see its floor map would be useful and fun.

I also appreciate all the support I’ve got from the readers and magazine/newspaper editors who wrote articles of this gadget.
I’m planning to attend the award ceremony on November 24th in Singapore, so anyone who happens to be there, please talk to me. I’ll post some photos on my Flickr if I can shoot good ones there. And of course I’ll keep twitting in Singapore, too.
