  • Furoshiki Challenge results coming soon!

    April 14, 2008


    The organizers of the Kobe G8 Environment Ministers Meeting "Furoshiki" Challenge, would like to thank all those who entered. The announcement of the winner will now be April 18. Felissimo, who created the Furoshiki Challenge in collaboration with the City of Kobe, tells DESIGN 21: "In addition to a much higher response than we expected, we realized that many designs deserved more than just being looked at. There's a lot of depth and meaning to each design and, for this reason, we will be spending a few more days to determine the winner. We will be announcing the result on April 18th." Check our website on the 18th for the results!
