Zoku is known for their housewares. But really, they are in the thinking business. Zoku put the fun in functional with innovative, easy-to-use, well-designed products. Zoku means family in Japanese. The definition goes beyond creating family memories around their products, it speaks to their culture. They are inspired by the world around, getting their hands dirty with prototypes and learning by collaborating, building, tasting, and exploring. It all started with a seemingly simple idea: what if we could make popsicles freeze faster? And after months of research, testing, and prototypes, the Quick Pop Maker was born. Design is at the heart of everything Zoku do, from product innovation to packaging to their office supplies. Zoku designs have been included in collections at The Henry Ford, the Chicago Athenaeum Museum for Architecture and Design, and thousands of kitchen counters across the world. Winner of many award like the GOOD Design Award, mentioned on Wired.com, and a National Parenting Seal of Approval.
