2007 Excelent Works

Japan Design Foundation has been implementing "International Design Business Promotion Projects" with cooperation of Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Osaka Prefecture Government, Osaka Municipal Government, Osaka Chamber of Commerce and so on in order to make further contributions of design to the development of business.
The Workshop of the International Design Competition 2007/JDF was held on February 14 and 15, 2008, with the participation of more than 100 people from the related industries, at the Osaka International Convention Center.
This time we invited design proposals from all over the world through "International Design Competition 2007/JDF", focusing on the "ROBOT" as the main theme. As a result of rigorous examination by experts, we selected 25 excellent works as the subject of the business communication, and invited 18 producers among them to deliver presentations at the Workshop.
At the Workshop, all excellent works were introduced in several ways; by the invited producers' presentations and by the panel display in the exhibition aria. Also, individual business communication meetings were held between the finalists and the business representatives who were interested in their products in order to develop new products
