KOKUYO Shanghai Flagship Showroom

The design concept of this showroom is “layer”. Kokuyo, which has more than 100 years company history, has offered a work environment to the world from its own perspective. In the process, we have achieved unique quality standards, techniques, and ideas, and now we are working on design activities on a worldwide basis. So here we thought about creating the space where visiotors can experience the company’s history, technology, aspiration, and also future challenges besides seeing the products. For that reason, we made this showroom by putting those efforts from the past to the future as messages in each layer and accumulated them in layers.
