Yamaha Corporation announces that two of its designs have been shortlisted to receive the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022: namely, Venova™ YVS-120/YVS-140 casual wind instruments and YH-L700A wireless headphones. Both awards were won in the Product Design discipline. In addition, both products have also been selected to receive the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022 and the most prestigious Red Dot: Best of the Best award.*1making them two winners of two world-renowned design awards.

The iF DESIGN AWARD, organized by the Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, is recognized as an arbiter of quality for outstanding design and is one of the most important design awards in the world. Each year, it honors design achievement in all product manufacturing disciplines. This year, the winners were chosen from nearly 11,000 nominations submitted by 57 countries for careful consideration by a 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from around the world.

Since 1999, Yamaha has received the iF DESIGN AWARD for 19 of its designs, and these two new awards now bring the total to 21.

Venova™ YVS-120/YVS-140 Occasional Wind Instruments

The Venova is an entirely new type of acoustic wind instrument that was developed to allow musicians to easily enjoy authentic sound and rich expressiveness. The innovative branching pipe structure and sinuous shape allow the instrument to be played with simple fingering resembling that of a recorder, making it easy to get started even for players new to wind instruments, while providing a satisfying playing experience for established wind instrument players. . The instrument’s ABS plastic body is lightweight yet exceptionally durable and can be cleaned with water, making regular use and maintenance easy. Due to its compact size, the Venova can be taken virtually anywhere, allowing gamers to easily enjoy music in a variety of environments ranging from outdoors to casual music sessions. In addition to the YVS-120 alto model and YVS-140 tenor model, the full lineup also includes a soprano model, for a total of three models to satisfy a variety of player needs.

YH-L700A Wireless Headphones

The YH-L700A wireless headphones adapt to the user’s media and listening environment to embody “True Sound”, which expresses the expression of every sound as the artist intended.
Yamaha’s original ‘3D Sound Field’ technology allows the user to select a three-dimensional space, or ‘sound field’, that complements the audiovisual content. It’s great not only for listening to music, but also for watching movies and TV shows on streaming services, as well as short clips on video-sharing services. Other unique features include “Listening Optimizer”, an exclusive Yamaha technology that optimizes sound in real time based on the size and shape of the listener’s ears and head. The headset’s simple and distinctive rectangular silhouette is the inevitable result of the designers’ pursuit of intuitive operation and uncompromising comfort. Fabric and leather materials are used throughout to create a luxurious feel that gently embraces the wearer. The result is a pair of wireless headphones that deliver an immersive sound experience in both functionality and design.
