The winners of the 2019 German iF Design Award have been announced recently. MINISO’s Kendama Gel Pen, Round Foldable Lamp and U-Fan stood out from more than 6,000 entries from more than 50 countries and won the international award. Once again, MINISO’s original design has won the German iF Design Award. So far, there have been seven MINISO products winning the award since its first entry in 2018.
MINISO’s Kendama Gel Pen won the 2019 German iF Design Award.
The designer of MINISO said that the design inspiration of Kendama Gel Pen comes from a traditional toy – Kendama, which embraces a kind of feeling of childhood. The most creative point of this pen is that the cap and the body of the pen are connected by an elastic material, so that the cap is not easily lost. The elastic material can lock the pen and the cap tightly, realizing the self-locking function, and keep the pen and cap together in a bag.
