Kazunori Takeishi of MONOCIRCUS recently submitted a design for the Dutch Design Competition USA 2014,

and the design was selected as one of the TOP 14 designs out of more than 180 submissions.


For this competition, artists and designers were asked to think of inventive, quirky, and smart ideas

for a new giveaway to be distributed in the US.

Ideas needed to be inspired by Dutch Design and represent the Netherlands in the US.

It also needed to fit the catalogue of Kikkerland, a Dutch design store.


The 14 selected designs will be 3D printed by Shapeways and

will be exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York City until April 20th 2014.


Kazu's entry is entitled 'WINDY', a cellophane tape dispenser in the form of the well-known symbol of Hollland, the windmill, 

which has mobile blades that actually rotates when tape is dispensed!


To win the grand prize, apart from the assessment by the jury members, online votes by the public will also affect the result.
