About the Sangetsu Wallpaper Design Awards

Sangetsu provides interior decorating materials for various spaces, such as homes, commercial facilities, offices, hotels and medical care and welfare facilities in order to share the joy of designing spaces with people.
We do not just supply interior decorating materials but we preserve the design materials to bring joy and comfort to the space.
