What is the Japan Tsubame Industrial Design Competition?
Cutlery (metal tableware) such as spoons and forks that everyone usually uses. In fact, more than 90% of the cutlery produced in Japan is made in Tsubame-shi, Niigata. Tsubame-shi is home to highly skilled “manufacturing companies” and is also active in the production of houseware and miscellaneous goods. I’m sure that your family also has one “Made in Tsubame” product.
The Japan Tsubame Industrial Design Competition aims to enhance the competitiveness of the production area and achieve sustainable development by evaluating and disseminating the innovation, aesthetics, functionality, marketability, and social and environmental properties of such Tsubame products from a professional perspective.
The Grand Prix is awarded the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Award, a competition with a history of more than 40 years.
