A house was built as a space to test the proposals. Company researchers and customers also evaluated it as an accommodation experience facility, and are working to further develop it.

GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2016 Special Award (Design for the Future Award)

GOOD DESIGN Best100

Ballooncam

Drones can be dangerous when they come close to people. The new concept of a large, round balloon was commended for making it possible to come close to people safely while providing a design that will make anyone seeing it smile. The bottom-up process of development where the designers took the lead and involved surrounding members, to include aesthetic value to make people smile, the roles of design going beyond functions and a good appearance to focus on emotional reactions, was commended.

GOOD DESIGN Best100

Cordless stick cleaner it

MC-BU500J

A cordless stick vacuum cleaner that easily cleans narrow gaps by a flick of the wrist that causes the nozzle to stand on its side. This solves the annoying need to change nozzles to clean gaps. Part of the front of the nozzle opens up to suck in dust accumulated along walls or in corners. The mechanism enables nozzle movability and sucking power at a high level, while the simple design fits in perfectly with interiors. The stylishness achieved with no compromise in usability was much commended.

Home Elevator 1608 JOYMODERN S200V

GOOD DESIGN Best100

Home Elevator 1608 JOYMODERN

S200V

The combined technology and design approach for more compact hydraulic equipment and altered equipment layouts reduces the depth of the pit for the home elevator to 200 mm. This figure is extremely important for renovation of existing homes, as it removes the need to dig deeply into the ground or to suspend the foundations, shortening the installation time and reducing the cost, lowering the barriers to renovation to install a home elevator. The design was commended for matching the dimensions of Japanese housing, enabling home elevators with a space of approximately 1.6 m2 usable by easy-assist wheelchairs to be introduced, improving the quality of life in a super-aging society and encouraging utilization of housing stock.
