ABOUT SOLIT

VISION

Achieving An All-Inclusive Society Where Nobody and Nothing Is Left Behind.

An 'All-Inclusive' society is one in which diversity of values and the choice of one’s perspective are mutually recognised, and in which all forms of existence - natural, biological, human and technological - can coexist in a healthy manner. We at SOLIT aim to realise an 'All-Inclusive' state in everything necessary for life, including healthcare, welfare, construction, real estate, automobiles, furniture, household appliances and clothing. Furthermore, in order to realise such a society, we practice the "Eastern Philosophical approach to Inclusive Design". With our practices, we are trying to break away from the conventional dualistic and centrist way of thinking and seeking to create spaces and approaches that are embracing the complexity and plurality of existence.

TOWARD OUR VISION
In order to achieve the 'All-Inclusive' society set out in our VISION, we believe that a 'market (economic zone)' needs to be formed, with as many companies, councils and other organisations from all fields as possible participating. Because what we are aiming for is the establishment of all-inclusive as a 'social standard'. To achieve such a future, it is essential to ensure both economic and social integrity that leaves nobody and nothing behind. That is why we at SOLIT are taking the following three steps to expand our business and increase the number of people in all fields who can build the future together. Our major mission is to work hand in hand with many companies, councils and other organisations to expand initiatives based on our all-inclusive concept in many fields, create examples and establish the market: an 'All-Inclusive Economic Zone'.

VALUE

At SOLIT, we respect the concept of 'pluralism', and we are committed to all people, things and phenomena. We assume that all things, even those that tend to be categorised into one, are far from one-dimensional and contain complex elements. Therefore, we believe that true social values lie in recognising the complexity of each individual, respecting each other's existence and constantly influencing each other.

Nobody Is Left Behind.

Based on the premise of pluralism, that even a single person or phenomenon has many elements, multiple meanings and possibilities, we operate and conduct business activities as a team in which everyone, regardless of disability, nationality, gender or religion, is involved from the upstream by practising to provide equal opportunities. We also actively collaborate across countries to explore new possibilities with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

Nothing Is Left Behind.

We develop and provide products and services that everyone can use with peace of mind, without neglecting to consider all aspects, including the impact on the global environment, human rights and ecosystems. We also place importance on continuing to look at the pluralistic nature of issues, without ever putting in the effort to understand the background of such issues.

TEAM

The members of SOLIT are a group of professionals working in different fields. From fashion professionals and medical and welfare professionals to creators and PR and marketing specialists, professionals from a wide variety of fields have come together as one team, transcending belonging and attributes, in sympathy with the concept of an 'All-inclusive Economic Zone'.

We are a group of compassionate, curious people who enjoy continually questioning ourselves about the existing society.
