Expanding the Possibilities of
Heavy Duty Cardboard 'Tri-Wall' by Design and Collaboration

The Good Design Store at PMQ presents the most recent exhibition by 2015 Good Design Award Winner, Tri-Wall.

The name "Tri-Wall" came into existence in the early 1950's when Abe Goldstein, a small box maker in New Jersey, USA, invented the manufacturing process for a new, heavy-duty corrugated material he dubbed "Tri-Wall Pak(R)".

Today, the Tri-Wall Group is still evolving. Their Asian network continues to expand, even as they increase our global awareness and broaden their corporate goals. They are carrying the Tri-Wall name into non-packaging related areas; creating new products and services using the same world-class standards for innovation, quality, and customer-driven performance that Tri-Wall established over half-a-century ago.

Tri-wall's experience of disaster zone aid through cardboard furniture made possible the creation of tables of very few components with simple assembly, saving waste and time. Though light, they can support over 150kg in weight. As they can be completely disassembled, they take up little space for transport. As the components were made of cardboard or iron, they can be easily recycled.

Exhibiton & Design Talk #16 - What makes a GOOD DESIGN ?

The Good Design Award, which is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its establishment, has continued awarding "good design" ever since the establishment in 1957 of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry sponsored "Good Design Selection System (popularly known as the G Mark Program)".

Over this period, conditions in industry and society and the issues that we face have greatly changed, and the aim and role of design has also expanded accordingly. The Good Design Award has apprehended the signals coming from life and society at different times and has always confronted the question of "what is good design?" from within that context. We are told that this journey has been a "milestone" in the journey of industry and design.

Exhibiton - What makes a GOOD DESIGN? - For Life, Society, Future.
In this exhibit, we look back upon the many different designs that have accompanied people's lifestyles from period to period and introduce the designs receiving the Good Design Award and the Long Life Design Award in the four sections of "Designs that Changed and Supported People's Lifestyles," "Progress in Life and Industry Guided by Design," "Brands that Continue to be Loved and their Designs," and "The Future of Touch".

June Exhibition: Office for Product Design
- "OBJECTIVES - Design for the Domestic Landscape"

Our June Exhibition is from Office for Product Design, who is a design studio formed in 2007 by Nicol Boyd and Tomas Rosén, who originally began their collaboration while studying at the Royal College of Art in London.

Some of the more interesting details and qualities found in our domestic environments come not from the interior architecture itself or dominating furniture centre pieces, but from smaller, sometimes overlooked items, which have a richer, more personal relevance. Given the social and cultural importance of food in our lives, these items are often found in the kitchen or on the dinner table.
As designers, they have a fascination with the role of these small utilitarian objects. They like to consider them as an opportunity, not only to address a practical need, but also to act as an important form of visual and emotional punctuation in our daily lives. Their objective is to create products for the home that embody a quiet confidence, and which reveal flashes of character and thoughtful consideration through use. They compliment the context in which they are used rather than dominate it, and while they may be ubiquitous, sometimes even unglamourous, they are nonetheless designed to stand up to the closest inspection, while never overtly demanding it.
Over the years they have continually come back to our interest in household objects as a way of refining the details of domestic life.
In this exhibition they present some of our recent commercial work for the brands Thomas/Rosenthal (Germany), no.30 and JIA Inc. (Taiwan), which all touches upon this theme.
