2014 Kids Design Award
Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd. (President, Akihiro Ogawa, head office, Kita-ku, Tokyo) is easy to open even in the lower grades that were released for new admission in 2014, and the solid glues of the cap that is hard to roll was awarded the 8th Children’s Design Award (2014).
Award winning “Ippo! “Solid glues ” is characterized by a 5-millimeter projection on the cap. Because the shape of the water droplets is seen from the top, we called the Drop type Cap (utility model application). It is easier to pull out the cap with a thumb on the protrusion. In addition, this projection becomes rolling prevention on the learning desk, and there is no worry that the glues is dropped.
Other features include the notice color that the yellow line is visible when the cap is not properly closed. (2) A new name space to write the name with an oily marker on the CAP head was established. (3) The glues is a ” blue color will disappear when glue dries out ” where you can see the paint and the color disappears over time. This product is an ECO Mark Certified product, a green purchasing law compliant product, and GPN Eco products and products.
20140709_2ksdsdesignThe background of the development was that “solid glues is convenient, but the (cylindrical) office cap is difficult for children to open,” said the user. The cap of the solid glues may be heavy to pull the cap off for reasons such as the need to be sealed to prevent the drying of the glues . Therefore, I devised the cap shape for the school children of the lower grade.
