Hyakunen Monogatari Year of the Snake

Hyakunen Monogatari is a global brand jointly promoted by companies and workshops in Niigata Prefecture and the Niigata Industrial Creation Organization, an external body of Niigata Prefecture. In a project that started in 2003, one design manager specified every year produces companies and designers, develops a model within the year, and presents collections. Receiving attention from many domestic and overseas media, the brand is highly rated and has received a variety of design awards, such as the Good Design Award and Asia Design Award. Under the basic theme of tools to enjoy and keep as part of the living culture that should be cherished for 100 years in order to create the next generation culture, so products of low-volume production, personal order, and long life are continuously proposed instead of mass produced goods for mass consumption
