Midas Receives "New Office Award" from Nikkei

Midas has officially received the 26th annual "New Office Award" from Nikkei. This is not the first time they have received the award, as they were also the recepients of the award 2 years prior. However, the 21st annual award given to Midas 5 years ago was in response to designs they had done for the MTV Networks Japan office, as well as the Bearing Point Osaka office. This time around, for the 26th annual award, Midas was nominated for its own office renewal, which was completed at the turn of the new year.

The New Office Award is given in collaboration by Nihon Keizai Shinbun (The Nikkei, in English), and NOPA (the New Office Promotion Association) with the goal of revolutionzing the standard office culture of Japan to a more progressive and dynamic one. The award has been given 25 times since 1988. The intent of the award is to bring attention and awareness to the creative and functional designs of new offices in Japan, and spread the ideas globally. Each year, 13 recipients are chosen from a pool of 131 candidate companies.
