Winners of the 61st annual Good Design Awards were named last week at an event which celebrated problem solving through “clever, considered and meaningful design.”
The top award, the Good Design Award of the Year, went to Inventia Life Science and Design+Industry for the Inventia Rastrum 3D Bioprinter (pictured.)
Two of the other high-profile awards went to Sharon Gauci, Executive Director of Industrial Design at General Motors and the inaugural Women In Design champion, and Queensland University of Technology and Designworks for the RangerBot project. Rangerbot is an underwater robot used for pest control and condition monitoring in reef environments.
It was one of seven awards claimed by Designworks on the evening. An interview with Designworks Director Warren Schroder discussing RangerBot can be read here.
“The Australian Good Design Award winners this year are an inspiring representation of the future,” said Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia.
“At the heart of all the winning projects is a problem (big or small) that was solved through clever, considered and meaningful design that will have a positive impact on our lives and our planet.”
