Chiyoda in Concert
Taking Chiyoda Europe to the next level.

Chiyoda Europa NV (Chiyoda) prints premium decor papers on ultra-modern four and five colour presses prior to hardening with melamine resin. Chiyoda offers its customers more than 2,000 designs for furniture, the building interior completion industry, panels and floor coverings, and this ranging from a natural wood decor, a trendy fantasy look, to an authentic stone image.

Chiyoda was positioned among the market leaders in the industry for many years but was heavily challenged to maintain that position.

We identified that Chiyoda's technological supremacy had become insufficient to stay ahead and differentiate itself from competition. In order to stay relevant in the market it was key for Chiyoda to also invest in the emotional aspects of their products.

At Chiyoda we set up long- and short-term projects involving all stakeholders to establish an engaging customer dialogue and ultimately become a design driven company.

We seeded a culture of collaboration between customers and internal stakeholders by nurturing two-way communication and brought Design Strategy, Programming and Orchestration to the table as well as training Chiyoda staff.

The Interzum 2015 exhibition was a key implementation milestone for the project.
