Epson’s ET-4750, L6190/L6191/L6198, ET-2750 inkjet printer and PaperLab A-8000 dry-process office papermaking system have been selected to join the list of the Good Design Best 100 which will be part of the display at the Good Design Exhibition 2017 to be held this November 1-5 at Tokyo Midtown complex.
Good Design Awards promote designs that benefit and enrich lives and society. In 2017 Epson won Good Design Awards for a total of seven products, including two projectors, four printers, and the office papermaking system, but only the most notable or significant designs make it to the Best 100 list.
The Best 100 are also eligible for the Good Design Grand Award, Good Design Gold Award, and Good Design Special Awards. Winners of these awards will be announced on November 1, 2017, an Epson press release said.
Manabu Kawahara, general manager for design in Epson's Printing Solutions Operations Division, says, "Our customers have praised our high-capacity ink tank printers because they can print as much as they need to without worrying about the cost.

We will continue to use printing to improve the quality of people's life and work, and will develop printer designs for products that exceed customer expectations."

This A4 inkjet multifunction printer features large ink tanks, and boasts high productivity and cost efficiency. The ink tanks and ink bottles are designed to make refills clean and quick, and the printer is intuitive and easy to navigate. The tank is in the front, which improves accessibility and makes it easier for you to check the ink level. Simply insert the ink bottle, and the mechanism automatically refills the tank to its full capacity. The tank juts out from the printer, showing its impressive capacity, and the simple, round shape of the casing expresses a robust durability that fits perfectly into any living space.
The PaperLab A-8000 is the first office papermaking system to employ a dry process to securely destroy used documents and produce new sheets of paper. Epson's dry fiber technology enables paper to be produced without the huge volumes of water that ordinary papermaking requires. Since no plumbing is needed, the PaperLab can be installed in a back office or anywhere else with available space to upcycle used paper. The PaperLab is changing office operations by increasing information security, producing paper of various weights and sizes, and reducing users' environmental impacts.

Good Design Awards
The Good Design Award is a comprehensive design-promotion system that picks good design out of a variety of unfolding phenomena. It is hosted by the Japan Institute for Design Promotion, a public interest incorporated foundation. It's precursor, the Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System), was founded in 1957 by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (the current Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry), and has been engaged in this work for about 60 years.
