The Toshiba Foundation caters for the fore coming Paralympic Games in Japan 2020.
Sport for athletes with impairment has existed for more than a century and if we examine our recent history, we will discover that the first sport clubs for the deaf were founded in 1888 in Berlin.
Officially speaking, the first Paralympic Games were held in Rome (Italy) in 1960.
Toshiba’s interest is not only giving support to those athletes who for obvious reasons require more help than others, but also making sure that Japan provides an image of unity and hospitality to the world.
The designers and engineers who work in a large Japanese company like Toshiba are involved in a great variety of technological projects, such as home appliance design.
Generally speaking, the purpose of their projects is to break down invisible barriers in their minds and expand their vision and creativity, thus enabling our designers to devise highly original, useful and stylish designs.
