NAKI Series

Maywa Denki’s products started with NAKI Series in 1990 when Nobumichi Tosa came across the personal question, “Who am I?” He adopted the following methods to try to solve this:

  1. Compare oneself to a fish, and the world to a sea where a fish lives, then, ask oneself “Who am I?” to find the answer from the point of a fish.
  2. With the theme of “one item = one message”, create a product to express the answer. Give each one of 26 projects an alphabetical model number.
  3. Examine the results as a whole and feel the total image of one’s self.
