Tokyo Head Office wins Bronze at Novum Design Award


The Fontworks head office (Minato-ku, Tokyo) opened in December 2019 won Bronze in the interior design category of the French international design award "Novum Design Award".

The headquarters office, which embodies Fontworks' tag line, “Freedom with letters, more and more” creates an environment based on keywords such as “fusion of creative and engineering”, “work while playing” and “collaboration among employees”. It was held and was awarded this time.

This is the fourth international design award to be won, following the Outstanding Property Award London, the MUSE Design Awards, and the A'Design Award and Competition.

The fontworks office is divided into a main floor where work is performed and multiple conference room floors. The main floor has a desk in the shape of C (Creative, Collaboration) in the center. In addition, we have a large display that is always connected to our Fukuoka Creative Lab, and we are actively communicating between the two locations.

The meeting room is designed to change the interior and interior for each room and select the location according to the mindset. The entrance that connects the main floor and the conference room floor is equipped with a chair and display for the platform, providing a place for casual communication with people outside the company.

The entrance is fantastically decorated with panels in Arabic letters, which have been very well received by visitors.
