Project Series wins a Good Design Award Winner Accolade!

Project Series wins Good Design Award Winner Accolade in Australia’s International Good Design Awards.

The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards – the highest honour for design and innovation in the country were announced today during the 2020 Good Design Week.

Project Series received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Product Design Furniture and Lighting category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level.

About Project Series

The Project Series is what you get when a love of sustainability is combined with a love of ideas. Project Series is a highly functional, modular furniture system, designed to recede into the background – allowing ideas to take centre stage. The Project Series was designed by Aspect Furniture and Refold in New Zealand.

The Good Design Awards Jury praised the Project Series, commenting: “An innovative take on the traditional whiteboard, it's great to have mobile storage within modern and collaborative workspaces. Of particular note is the development of materials to solve a problem – one of the most difficult things to achieve in a project. The mobile studio of the moveable whiteboards and wall system as well as the mobile bench and storage are strong and well-considered. It's possible to see how this will be really effective in contemporary flexible offices.”

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”

“There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” said Dr. Gien.

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence – it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the sheer brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
