Universal Design
User-friendly for everyone - it's our basic concept of creating glass containers.
Universal Design is meant to design and produce products and environments to be accessible to everyone regardless of age, gender and capability. Toyo Glass has been pursuing user-friendly shapes and functions of glass containers from the view of human engineering thus developing glass containers with functions which are easy to hold, easy to pour and/or easy to open.
Toyo Glass's Basic Concept and Principle of Universal Design.
Under the basic concept and principle of Universal Design, we have developed glass containers which make more people feel comfortable to use.

1. Express in an understandable way in order to provide information a user needs.
2. Make it easier to use a glass container with a low-impact to the user.
3. Have a simple functional beauty which seeks user-friendliness.
