Hello, we are SOLIT! We are an eastern inclusive design solution team based in Japan and the EU.
By utilizing the Eastern philosophy of inclusive design and involving the parties involved from the planning stage, we support the development of all-inclusive services and products that are truly needed through the creation of new value and business.
The one and only Eastern philosophy-based inclusive design.
Creating and practicing a way of being and an approach to the world that is not based on dualistic and centralistic ways of thinking and introducing Western DE&I, but rather on the complexity and pluralism of existence, which is based on the assumption of diversity and acceptance. An inclusive design that takes into account the complex background of the 'individual' and leaves no one and none behind is possible.
World-leading DE&I projects
- The company has been recognized at the highest global level for design, environmental and human rights, including being awarded the world's top prize at the iF DESIGN AWARD, one of the world's three major design awards, and at the Global Fashion Summit.
- Connections with overseas practitioners enable proposals to be one step ahead of the curve, based on the most up-to-date information of the times.
Integrated from planning to PR and information transfer and system building.
- As conventional measures often end up being one-offs, we are even building an ongoing system to enable structural change.
- Web and graphic supervision and production of the plans and products produced, including the Ethical Check, which is not only limited to planning but also ensures that diverse people are not harmed in the dissemination of information.
