In excellent product design lies the origin

THINGS was founded in 1998 by the two designers Satoshi Yasushima and Tomoko Honda with a focus on product design. The business content of THINGS extends over a very broad spectrum of areas, but the beginning was product design.

Harmonious design is something natural

When we work on the design of things, we give these things a space in which they can exist. People perceive these things in space through their mind and time. They connect nature, the environment with the way of life of people. We have realized that harmonious design is nothing special, but rather natural.

“Our goal is to bring beauty into people's lives. A beautiful life is a happy life. Helping with that is our calling.”
