KON received iF design award 2024 (Germany)

“KON” (designed by Mikiya Kobayashi) by Takata Lemnos Inc. has been awarded the “iF DESIGN AWARD 2024,” a globally prestigious design award. The award is sponsored by Germany’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH each year.

KON – Stool


This stool is named “KON/根” (literally “root”) as it gives the image of sitting on a stump, with its legs going out toward the bottom end for stability.
KON is a small stool ideal for entrances, but it is also suitable for a variety of both private and public spaces. It features a clean and sophisticated form with the legs made of stainless steel and the seat made of high-quality materials such as natural wood, leather, and textiles. In addition to the simple basic type, a version with a leather basket under the seat can hold slippers, shoehorns, and other small items.
It blends in with its surroundings, making it an ideal piece of furniture for everyday use. Its compact size makes it easy to move.

Headquartered in Hannover, Germany, iF International Forum Design is the world’s longest-running independent design organization, which annually selects outstanding designs and awards them with the “iF Design Award”. This year, 10,500 entries were received from 56 countries/regions, and 133 design experts conducted a rigorous judging process.
