This time, 10 products in the functional / design category were selected as excellence awards from the new and renewed stationery products announced after July 12, 2014. One Grand Prix was decided from each division.
"SUITO cleaning paper," which won the Grand Prix in the functional category, is a paper product created just to "make the pen tip of a fountain pen beautiful." Not only does it specialize in the daily care of fountain pens, but it also transforms the act of polishing the pen tip into a "beautiful action."
Mr. Kazuo Kawasaki (design director) who served as a judge said that he highly evaluated the point that "it is a product that discovered the new functionality of the paper itself and embodied the leatheriness of Japanese stationery". .. Similarly, judge Atsushi Hasebe (Tokuma Shoten) commented, "While fountain pens as a luxury item are attracting the most attention, making this product is really modern."
On the other hand, "Millisecond Aluminum Metal Major", which won the Grand Prix in the design category, is an aluminum major designed by metal processing maker Takeda and designer Hidefumi Yamaguchi in Tsubamesanjo, Niigata Prefecture. By utilizing the three holes on the edge, various styles and uses such as hanging and hanging around the neck can be expanded. Judge Tatsuya Wada (Professor, Tama Art University) evaluates that "the beautiful molding carved from aluminum is very precise and well-balanced, and the design fits comfortably in the hand."
