Toyobo's Corporate
Identity Tagline

To mark the 140th anniversary of its foundation, the head office was relocated and the monument "TOYOBO WINDOW" was created.


On the occasion of our 140 year anniversary, we moved our head office in May 2022.

"TOYOBO WINDOW", a new monument in the visitor lobby "Future Space", was created by glass and stone craftsmen in Japan under the supervision of Taku Satoh, a graphic designer who also created the corporate logo. Through this window, we hope to bring our technology and materials to everyone and help solve problems for people and the earth.

In addition, the stone carvings that hung from 1917 to 1974 at the front entrance of head office have been relocated to the "Historical Space" at the reception entrance.

"TOYOBO WINDOW" is set up in such a way that visitors can look into the future from a wide perspective when looking through the window to the entrance, and can see the history of Toyobo (the stone carving installed in head office) when turning to the other side.
