Good Design Awards 2015: We made the shortlist. Twice!

We’re thrilled to mention we’ve been shortlisted for the coveted Good Design Awards for the second year in a row. And this year we’ve upped the ante: we’ve got not one, but two products in the selection list, both designed in Australia.

The Good Design Awards are Australia’s oldest and most prestigious awards for design and innovation. There are seven main categories for the awards and twenty-five sub-categories, representing one of the most diverse range of submissions in the world.

In the Commercial & Industrial category, the E2 LED Edgelight Exit Sign, designed by the amazing team of Eduardo Yudowski, Dinesh Vijayaraman, Ben Miles, and Paul Barron in Sydney, impressed the judges with its more delicate aesthetic, but surprisingly robust form.


The judges commented: “The Legrand E2 Edgelight is a significant step forward in the design of exit signs with a true innovation in the mechanism that allows the unit to be mounted on any angled surface. This flexibility gives architects, builders and component specifiers greater choice in this tightly controlled space.” Check it out here


Note: We mould the housing components at our factory in Sydney and our manufacturing team are up for the challenge of customising colours to suit a daring project. Any takers?


In the Medical & Scientific category, Excel Life Medical, designed by Eduardo Yudowski and Melvinder Singh in Sydney, sits amongst a prestigious array of ingenious medical devices by innovators such as Cochlear. With antimicrobial properties, Excel Life Medical reinvents the conventional wall plate.


The Judges commented: “The Excel Life Medical Range is a stand-out example of what good design can bring to a very complex and challenging project with a multitude of design parameters and constraints. The designers have clearly demonstrated that they understand the environment very well and have delivered a world class product”. Check it out here


Both the E2 LED Edgelight Exit Sign and a selection of Excel Life Medical products will be featured in the Good Design Showcase, part of the Vivid Festival, Martin Place, Sydney, from 30 May to 9 June. We’d like to thank the judges and congratulate the Good Design Australia team for running such a marvellous event to raise the profile of great design in everyday objects.
