The Good Design Awards are the world’s longest running design awards and they are presented annually in recognition of design excellence. They were founded in Chicago in 1950 by designers and architects Edgar Kaufmann Jnr, Charles and Ray Eames and Eeero Saarinem.
We were awarded for 10 designs for our work in the Consumer team. Six of these were a collabortation with the Logitech Design Team with whom we are consistently breaking new ground. There were also four other awards in this category; designing the IQOS device for Philip Morris international, Homni Connected Sleep Monitor and the R Series Smart Scales for Terraillon and the Oro Collection for Flair Showers.
Within the Professional category we garnered 5 awards. We have worked with the Electron microscope manufacturer FEI and the collaborative effort resulted in two awards for ID and User Interface design. The SensePoint gas detection range, by Honeywell won two awards following our success in the IF awards earlier in 2017. Also awarded was the Spacemouse Enterprise for 3Dconnexion with whom we have worked for 18 years.
Our recently established Healthcare and Science department won an award for their excellent work with Arc. The digital non-touch thermometer by Arc devices has received huge praise and admiration across the world. It was named one of Time Magazine’s Innovations of the Year in 2016 and the product is used globally by medical teams as an important tool. The InstaTemp MD was awarded a Good Design Award 2017.
We are proud of our work over the past year, and for the opportunity to work and collaborate with such great clients. We are looking forward to 2018 and the exciting designs to come. We are starting off the year by exhibiting at CES 2018. Please drop by and say hello. We are at booth # 60108, Tech East, South Plaza.
