CONCEPT

CONCEPT

What does “good design” mean to you?

For the GOOD DESIGN AWARD, a good design is “a design which enriches life and society.” It is a design which is human, essential, creative, attractive and ethical.

The GOOD DESIGN STORE TOKYO by NOHARA proposes a lifestyle surrounded in items that the GOOD DESIGN AWARD considers to be good design.
Each item has been crafted with the intention of enriching the lives of the people that use them.

The design that will make you look twice, capture your heart, and cause you pick it up in this shop just might transform your lifestyle a little.
We believe that you will discover new comfort here, and you will find this shop to be a place where you can design a future pleasant life.

ABOUT
nohara NOHARA

Nohara Holdings, Inc. (business entity)
Nohara Holdings, Inc. traces its history all the way back to 1598, at the end of the Sengoku Period, when it was founded in Iida City in Nagano Prefecture. Nohara Co., Ltd. was founded post-war, in 1947 in Tokyo.
The company started as a cotton merchant, and by the end of the Edo Period, it had begun dealing in hardware such as agricultural equipment. From the period of high economic growth during the Showa Period until the present, it has provided society the goods that has needed with each era, mainly dealing in materials such as steel, glass, cement and building materials
2017 marked the group’s 70th anniversary, and is a critical juncture in the transition to a holdings company.
We have opened GOOD DESIGN STORE TOKYO by NOHARA to be an entirely new kind of concept store; one that enriches people’s lives, as well as society, through the power of design.
We hope that this undertaking will become a great step forward for GOOD DESIGN in Japan.

GOOD DESIGN AWARD

GOOD DESIGN AWARD has been the sole comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system in Japan since 1957. It’s precursor, the Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System), was founded in 1957 by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (the current Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry). Now, many companies and designers from both inside and outside of Japan participate in the system’s activities as a way to enhance industry and the quality of life through design. The award is considered a milestone of Japanese design and industry, and its symbol, “G Mark”, has been recognized widely as representing good design.
