A Glance of AGUA Design: Founded in 1994 in Paris, moved to Taiwan in 1996
AGUA Design is made of a team of designs with experiences at different parts of Europe. In the past 16 years, the team has focused on designs in 4 particular areas: stationeries, commercial applications, global conceptual designs, and interactive education program.
AGUA Design has already established a unique stationery line, its notebook is the hottest items among the line; it revolutionizes the idea of notebook as a tool to keep notes, it is also an item for collections and to reveal personal style. The line is sold in Taiwan, Hong Kong, museums in France, and boutiques in Spain, Italy, and Switzerland.
In terms of commercial application, the team’s most well known case is the MobiNote MP4 cover created in 2005, it won the German iF award in the same year. The design also won Creative award in Consumer Electronic Show in U.S., and 3 top awards in Taiwan Excellence Competition; it was also nominated in the Japanese Good Design competition.
AGUA Design’s special collaboration in 2006 with poet Ms. Mimi Ye on her book “Dark” also won a Gold Butterfly Award for the team. It is a fine example how AGUA Design works with the famous people and brands to enhance brand value with creative designs.
Another important and original project is the global conceptual design. It is hoped our designs could enhance our quality of lives, contribute to the society as a whole, and could apply to societies’ needs in 10 or 20 years afterwards. Some creative samples are the 2008 garbage disposal solution for the Beijing Olympics, the new cheering tools, conceptual parks like “City Mountain”, etc. The team launched the long term project “City Yeast” in 2006, in hope that everyone can be inspired about their environment and grew to love it.
