Congratulations to our clients who won a Good Design Award this year! Across consumer products, medical devices and aquatic sportstech equipment, the awards are a celebration of successful product design and the ways we collaborate to improve lives and make the world a better place.
Presto Salon Hairbrush Cleaner by Comfortel Furniture won a Good Design Award Best in Class in the Product Design category.
Presto is an electric hairbrush cleaner that makes it easy to remove hair from hair brushes. It solves the manual task of hairbrush cleaning and results in a faster, more thorough and more hygienic experience for hair stylists and their clientele. After an extensive research program, our team gained a deep understanding of the way hair stylists work and how they need to maintain a clean and efficient salon environment. By applying this knowledge and working closely with Comfortel and salons, we designed and developed this new stand-alone salon product for Comfortel.
Good Design Awards Jury statement – “By deeply understanding the end-user and salon environment, the design process has resulted in a unique product that addresses a pain point for stylists. This device could save time and make the hair salon a cleaner, safer place to work. There is a true need for this in salons. Overall, this is a really impressive example of design and engineering and a standout project that ticks every box for design excellence in this category. Well done.”
Okti mobile EEG by Compumedics Ltd won a Good Design Award.
We have worked closely with Compumedics for many years. As a collaborative team we design and develop life-changing medical devices that detect and monitor epilepsy, brain disorders and neurological diseases. For Okti, our design and engineering team focused on creating a device that reduced the fear and stigma associated with having at EEG. Okti’s design supports ground-breaking technology that allows a patient to move around untethered while undergoing hours of EEG monitoring.
Okti is the world’s first fully mobile high-density electroencephalogram (EEG) system. The device can be rapidly set up to comprehensively analyse brain conditions without patients being tethered to large diagnostic equipment confined to a single room. Okti is optimised for children and provides crucial diagnosis of brain disorders for early and effective treatment.
wheezo digital wheeze monitoring system by Respiri Ltd won a Gold Good Design Award.
Our design team worked with Grey Innovation, who had developed the original electronics for wheezo, to design and develop an engaging and user-friendly format the engaged and inspired children and their carers to use it. Our focus was to develop an ergonomic hand-held form for wheezo, that mimicked the shape of a smooth pebble or egg-shape that children felt comfortable holding and interacting with.
Designed to assist with asthma management, wheezo is a digital wheeze monitoring system that mimics how doctors listen for respiratory wheeze with a stethoscope. The device works hand-in-hand with an app and a healthcare professional portal to record, analyse, share and build a picture of a person’s asthma. This process works by tracking self-reported symptoms, triggers and medication use.
Zygo underwater streaming headset by Zygo also won a Gold Good Design Award.
Zygo transforms swimming and swim training to help people unlock a love of water. It’s a world-first communication system that facilitates real-time underwater coaching, app based training and audio streaming for swimming and water sports. Our mechanical engineers and industrial designers worked with the co-founders of Zygo and the electronic development team at FDPDCS LLC to transform and design and detail Zygo ready for action underwater.
Tapsquire Wallet by Tapsquire won a Good Design Award.
Tapsquire is a premium contactless card wallet that allows a user to individually tap their cards straight from their wallet at the press of a button. Engineered for simple contactless convenience and designed for consumers who appreciate style, traditional materials and craftmanship, we worked with co-founders Ben and Peter Campain to design, detail and develop Tapsquire ready for production.
We’re honoured to have collaborated with all of our clients to create, engineer and develop world-first, state-of-the-art products. Congratulations to everyone!
