Tomoyasu Manufacturing Co., Ltd.
We are looking for product ideas that will add color to your life! A Meet Up event will be held on October 12th!
Application deadline: 11/10: Ikuno Manufacturing Town project will embark on a co-creative journey to tackle new challenges with the manufacturing town of Ikuno Ward. Looking for design partners. …………………………………………………………………………………………………
“Ikuno Manufacturing Town” is a project that aims to capture new markets with four companies that are taking on the challenge of new manufacturing, with the theme of “making manufacturing fun.” This project, sponsored by Ikuno Ward and Tomoyasu Seisakusho Co., Ltd., will run from September 19, 2023 to November 10, 2023, on the co-creation platform AWRD. We are looking for design partners. The judges are professionals who are involved in manufacturing in various ways. On October 12th (Thursday), we will also hold Fab Meetup Kyoto where you can talk directly with the four companies.
This project is a project where participating companies and creators work together to research “manufacturing” and make manufacturing fun through product development. We are looking forward to your
application, including those who want to take on the challenge of creating new things in government-led projects, those who want to do not only physical design but also corporate branding, and those who also want to design sales channels and services.
What is the product idea that “adds color to your life”?
The theme of the product ideas being solicited is product ideas that “add color to life.” Manufacturing companies in Ikuno Ward have produced products that support our lives and are indispensable to our daily lives. They have outstanding unique technology and have developed the local industry. However, their technology is rarely felt by consumers. In order to escape from such a situation, we are looking for product ideas that can convey the creator’s thoughts and add color to our lives.
