Sumajin is an award winning design based company located in Singapore. We started as an Industrial design service consultant in 2001. We have continued to explore the use of industrial design as a business advantage. Introduced our own product range in 2003 and has since lead to more of our designs being retailed globally. Sumajin aims at creating an environment that pushes the limit of design ideas and constraints. With more and more projects blurring the boundaries between product and the software environment, it is necessary to utilize an approach that considers both aspects. The product's interaction becomes very critical as part of the design consideration. The use of design has become more important to communicate the product's intent; as many products have similar technologies and functions. We have chosen to use design to set ourselves apart.
In 2005 & 2006, Sumajin was selected to showcase as part of Singapore’s 20/20 effort to recognize talents that captures the emerging culture. It features the best design works done in Singapore and it demonstrates how Singapore designers have touched the lives of many people around the world.
