A chemical reaction occurs when two substances come together to form something new.
Bringing forth new products with the power to amaze the world requires a fusion between
superior original technology and design - a fusion strong enough to be called a chemical reaction.
Trinus, Latin for "triple", brings together Japanese technology, design and end users
in an open platform that offers a new realm of value.
TRINUS works tirelessly to find unique technologies and materials from across Japan, and we invite designs that use these in new and unusual ways.
Please read the application guidelines thoroughly, and submit a design you feel makes the most of each material's unique properties.
※For TRINUS to consider your design, please register for an account.
Submitted designs are released to the public. You can see our catalogue of designs on the website, vote on them, and leave comments and feedback.
TRINUS pays particular attention to vote results, and feasibility of design when selecting designs.

TRINUS will make a prototype together with the manufacturer and designer, and report the progress on our website.
Get involved in the design process by submitting comments and casting votes on designs you want to see brought to life.
