START OF EBI
Feeling emptiness for the life of overflowing with too much products,
EBI designer Sozo Hiramatsu was thinking about how to enrich our life actually.
He experienced many things to find the answer, traveling a lot of places, reading many books and talking with several people, etc. Then he found the answer that we could have the energetic and rich life stimulating the routine life with having more “ Imagination ” in daily life.
Based on this idea, we started EBI in 2009 as a company that designs the products to make the chance having “Imagination” in daily life.
EBI means lobster in Japanese. As we Japanese eat lobster on various celebrations,
EBI wishes to be the part of the happiness in your life.
WHAT IS “ FANTASY ” FOR EBI
We design the product with the concept “ More FANTASY to your life!! ”, because we think “ FANTASY ” generates“ Imagination ” and it makes our stressful life happier and richer.
