Contest Brief

[ What do you need to do? ]

This is a product design competition for new gift products.
We are asking you to design a product from your own original ideas using Obisugi cedar wood.
The main feature of Obi-sugi is its lightness and ability to bend into shape.
The Obisugi cedar has a very fine and clean aroma too.
We are planning to sell new exciting products worldwide through the internet.
Your design must be clever and beautiful but also fulfilling the highly competitive market's demands
ex: Apple product gadget, starbucks gifts, and so on.


[ Why are we doing this? ]

An afforestation project of Obi-sugi has taken place in the Miyazaki prefecture of Kyusyu Island in Japan.
It has gained first place for cedar production for the last 23 years, which secures our constant access to the finest Obisugi wood.

Obi-sugi has been used for shipbuilding traditionally,
but as technology has developed and as alternative materials have been used,
its market size has declined.

Therefore we strongly feel that we need to create a new direction for our traditional craft industry
by developing a new range of products using Obi-sugi wood.
This project is consistent with environmental conservation through recycling and replanting.


[ How do you do it? ]

Please send your product design to us.
We will assess them, and our team of experts will award the prize to the best products that meet this design brief.
