The Australian Good Design Awards are now showcasing this year’s finalists, with winners to be named at the Good Design Awards Ceremony on September 17 in Sydney.
Some standout examples among the finalists — over 12 main design disciplines and more than 35 categories — were:
- Savic C-Series Electric Motorcycle, Australia’s first full-sized, high-performance electric motorcycle (pictured), based on the café racers of the 1970s;
- Great Wrap, which takes food waste and ferments it down into feedstock to make cling wrap and pallet wrap that is home compostable;
- Cochlear Nucleus Kanso 2 Sound Processor, which combines the latest smartphone connectivity features and hearing performance technology in a simple and durable all-in-one design; and
- Active Mask, a reusable face mask specifically designed for sustained protection and optimal comfort.
“We are truly humbled by the high standard of design projects entered into this year’s Awards. The quantity and quality of design work represented is truly outstanding and a positive indicator that our design community is flourishing, even during these challenging times,” said Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia.
The number of entries for 2021 was a record, said Gien, who added that he had never seen such a broad representation of innovative design from entrants.
“A quick look at some of these amazing entries reinforces the message that good design is not only good business, but it is also an essential ingredient to improve our overall quality of life and to make our world better, safer, and ultimately, more sustainable.”
