Amazing achievement: World’s first award for an iPhone 6 Plus case AndMesh wins the “Red Dot Design Award”

The AndMesh Mesh Case for iPhone 6 Plus, a made-in-Japan iPhone case manufactured and sold by DAQ Co.Ltd. (Location: Tokyo, Chiyoda-ku, CEO: Teppei Goto), won the “Red Dot Design Award”, the world’s largest international design award.

The “Red Dot Design Award” is a design award organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfallen in Germany, and is a prestigious award known as one of the world’s three major design awards along with the iF Award (Germany) and the IDEA Award (USA). In 2015, there were 4,928 products entered from 56 countries around the world. The AndMesh, which was selected as an excellent product from among the many entries, and was the first iPhone 6 Plus case to win the award.

The AndMesh is a made-in-Japan iPhone 6・6 Plus case, whose every aspect, from design to manufacture, processing, package manufacturing, and packaging is done in Japan. The unique made-in-Japan elastomer provides an excellent combination of durability and flexibility, achieving just the right degree of elasticity.

The comfortable fit that encloses the body of the iPhone, the backing with the ideal degree of thickness, and the structure surrounding the buttons that allows for ideal operability do not simply protect the iPhone; they are designed to make it easier to hold and use. Taking advantage of Japanese-made materials and Japanese technology, this product was created through the pursuit of functional beauty. The mesh design on the back is designed so that its dots grow larger and denser around the Apple mark, allowing the Apple mark to be glimpsed. The superb design and high quality have attracted support not only in Japan but around the world. The case is now being sold in famous boutiques around the world, such as colette in Paris.

This quality and design is achievable precisely because every aspect of the production takes place in Japan. This product has been available worldwide since the end of 2014, but now after receiving this award, it has become internationally recognized for its design.
