A small (?) consumer electronic company from Japan. All products are pretty whimsical and functional. I understand the lead ID/Founder (?) Naoto Fukasawa is also IDEO Design Fellow.
While this is not "consumer electronic", I think the Soccer Mat is the best out of its various offerings.
Related note, I also discovered the Japan Design Net web site. Seems like a good resource to learn more about Japanese design without a trip to Japan itself or to visit your local Japanese book store.
