March 18, 2024

TOKYO, March 18, 2024 – Ricoh Company, Ltd. and RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. have won this year's iF DESIGN AWARD 2024 for RICOH Portable Monitor 150BW/150, RICOH IM C6010/C5510/C4510/C3510/C3010/C2510 and PENTAX K-3 Mark Ⅲ Monochrome in the “Product” category. Each year, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, the world's oldest independent design organization, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD.

Portable monitor “RICOH Portable Monitor 150BW/150” (RICOH)

A thin, lightweight, portable monitor with hand-drawn input with a finger or pressure sensitive stylus. 150BW connects cable-free to a PC or smartphone with WiFi and a built-in battery. It has a very minimalist form to keep focus on the screen and a minimal weight, despite the built-in stand to freely adjust the angle, so it is easy to carry about and supports new work styles not tied to an office. The non-protruding plug design enables quick installation and removal without plugging/unplugging cables. It is overwhelmingly light, just 560 g for the 150 without a battery and 705 g for the 150BW with a battery and wireless connection.

Digital full color MFP (multi-function peripheral) “IM C6010/C5510/C4510/C3510/C3010/C2510/C2010” (RICOH)

This is the first multifunction printer to use recycled plastic for about 50% of the total body plastic weight. The high environmental performance helps realize an advanced circular society. Whilst this machine uses recycled plastic, which is more difficult to procure and mold than virgin material and tends to be darker in color, it harmonizes with the increasingly diversifying working spaces of today with the bright coloring required for workplaces and a neat and simple shape. It also improves efficiency with diverse document digitization and application linkage to fit the ways of working in the DX era.


Monochrome photography was the starting point for photographic expression. Although color images abound today, due to the popularization of color photography, digitalization, and camera functions on smartphones, this digital single-lens reflex camera for monochrome photography was developed for camera users who prefer monochrome film expression, or who want to master monochrome. This new camera captures the needs of camera users in detail and has its own unique value that was created through workshop style manufacturing rather than mass production.
