COMCOMは「未来をむずかしくしない」をコンセプトに企画されたホームネットワークに接続された家電プロトタイプ群です。当時の松下電工の社内ベンチャー, Comfortable Communicationsがクライアントでした。プロトタイプ自体がこの会社のイメージを表現する必要があったので、プロトタイプ間のデザイン統合に気を配ってデザインを行いました。
「佇まい」を全体のキーワードとし、プロトタイプのカテゴリーごとに機能やユーザーとの関係に合わせてデザインの特徴を変化させています。
残念ながら発表直前にComfortable Communicationsは解散することになりましたが、当社でのプレス発表は許可されました。スイッチプレートには多くの商品化依頼が寄せられ, 他の幾つかのプロトタイプはハリウッドの大手プロダクションからSF映画への貸出依頼もありました。

COMCOM is a group of prototype home appliances connected to home network, designed under the concept;”let’s not make the future difficult”.The client was Comfortable Communications, corporate venture within Matsushita Electric Works(currently Panasonic). As the company was brand new and unknown, we had to create a group of prototypes that simultaneously impress people and introduce them to the concept of COMCOM so the uniformity of design between the prototypes was very important. The keyword of the whole lineup was “atmosphere” and the difference in characteristics of each prototype reflects the function and the relationship between the user and the prototype. Unfortunately the Comfortable Communications was halted just before the unveiling of the prototypes but we were allowed to unveil them as part of our press releases. There was a lot of interests in producing the switch plate on a commercial basis and we even received requests from Hollywood movie production companies to rent some prototypes as props for Sci-Fi movies.

COMCOM是和家居息息相关的家电系列商品,以「未来不困难」为概念而设计的。松下电工(现为Panasonic)的独立事业Comfortable Communication是案主。试作模型必须表现公司的印象,所以我在设计时十分注意试作模型之间的统合。
系列整体的关键词是「氛围」。配合试作模型的类型不同,以及功能和用户的关系,变化调整设计特征。
很可惜地,在发表前一刻,Comfortable Communications解散,不过仍允许本公司公开发表。开关板接获许多商品化的要求,其他几项试作模型也外借好莱坞大型制作公司,拍摄科幻电影。


COMCOM second seriesはリモコムという通話、通信を核とした多機能携帯端末です。iPhone的なモデルは2004年に提案済みだったのでそれ以外の特徴を持ち、異業種からの参入のフックになるような商品多様性をビジュアル化することがプロジェクトの目的でした。
 
そこで当社でデザインディレクションを行い、CURIOSITY、デザインスタジオS、堀切玩具堂にデザインを依頼。それぞれ「ゲーム」、「携帯電話の延長線上」、「カメラ」に焦点を当ててデザインをしてもらい、プロトタイプを作成しました。
 
各デザイナーはケータイ、ゲーム、カメラの知識とデザイン経験があり、それをベースに携帯端末の未来について話をしながら、彼らの嗜好とデザインテイストに合わせてそれぞれのデザインと製品特性を決めていきました。サカイデザインでも「非電子アイテムとのオーバーラップ」というコンセプトで1台プロトタイプを製作しています。

COMCOM second series is a multifunctional portable terminal called REMOCOM with phone call and communication being its core functions. We had already proposed an iPhone type model in 2004 so the goal of this project was to visualize the variety of products different from iPhone that would interest and encourage other industries to participate in the development.
 
We directed the project and asked Curiosity, Design Studio S and Horikiri Gangudo to come up with a design which focus on “game”, ”mobile phone” and “camera” respectively and produced prototypes.
 
Each designer had a knowledge and experience in designing mobile phone ,game and camera so we made decisions on design and characteristics of each product based on their taste and preference while discussing the future of the portable terminal. Sakai Design also designed a prototype under the concept of “overlapping with non-electrical items”.

COMCOM second series是以通话、通讯为主的多功能手机,称为REMOCOM。iPhone风格的手机款式已在2004年问世,所以这项企画的目的是提出不同特色、更具多样性的手机图式,提供异业得以加入的破口。
 
本公司负责设计监制,委托CURIOSITY、Design Studio S、堀切玩具堂分别针对「游戏」、「手机的相关延伸产品」、「照相机」进行设计,并制作试作模型。
 
各个设计师都拥有手机、游戏、照相机的知识和设计经验,针对手机的未来,交换意见,再结合自己的喜好和设计感性,决定各自的设计和产品特性。酒井设计也以「结合非电子产品」概念,制作一台试作模型。
