Last week the Good Design Award judges locked themselves away in Sydney’s Town Hall to run the ruler over all the Good Design entries.
Today, the products awarded a Good Design Selection have been named. From these nominees the best will be awarded a Good Design Award at a Gala Award Night on 28 May 2015 and one will be named as Best in Category.
A massive 44 appliances received a Good Design Selection from the 49 entered in the awards, demonstrating the industry’s strong support for this competition and the high calibre designs hitting retailers’ shelves. The category has more than twice as many vying for Best in Category than last year; in 2014 19 appliances from 10 brands received a Good Design Selection.
Many brands picked up multiple selections. Across its three brands the De’Longhi group scored nine selections, Electrolux has eight across cooking, food prep and floorcare, and Breville and Dyson have three products each in the running for Good Design Awards.
Philips received four Good Design Selections in the appliance category as well as one in the Sport and Lifestyle category for the Philips Avent Comfort Single Electric Breast Pump.
Of the 17 products in the Consumer Electronics category to receive Good Design Selections there were some big names, including Lenovo and Yamaha, as well as smaller manufacturers and plenty of Smart Home products including the Ninja Sphere, Zen Thermostat and the SwannOne DIY home security system from Swann Communication.
Past overall winner Blackmagic received two Good Design Selections in the Consumer Electronics category and a further three Good Design Selections in the Commercial and Industrial category for its broadcasting equipment.
Congratulations and good luck to all the Good Design Selection winners!
