First YORI Fan Art Contest drew over 500 entries nationwide!
Ever since YORI was introduced to the market, the brand has become every starter’s home. They commit themselves to build furniture that remains smart and easy, yet rewarding to own. From product design down to customer service, the dedicated team behind YORI designed the whole brand experience for the customers. A DIY project doesn’t have to have complications just to make the output feel rewarding. And, that’s what YORI is all about.
So, to celebrate their love for design and their followers, they opened a fan art contest. This ran from April 20 to May 15, 2021. Despite being a new brand, they received over 500 entries from different artists nationwide. Many artworks look exceptionally good. However, only three of them emerged as winners. The announcement of the YORI Fan Art Contest became public on their official Facebook page on May 18, 5 PM.
