We’re extremely happy to announce that the Dispenser from Details by Wahl&Ross has won Gold in the Australian Good Design Awards ‘Product Design’ category. Thanks to the whole development team and all the beta-testers for helping us along the way!
‘Details Dispenser’ Recognised in Australia’s International Good Design Awards for Design Excellence.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “Beautiful aesthetic and premium finish for a now necessary product in the public domain. The use of soft sculptural form and natural material create a more welcoming product than the traditional bathroom-like solutions. Really nicely resolved, and will certainly appeal to the high end market. Overall, this is a really impressive example of design and a standout project that ticks every box for good design in this category. Well done.”
Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving an Australian Good Design Award is testament to embedding design excellence at the heart of a product, service, place or experience. Although 2021 continues to be another challenging year, it is incredibly inspiring to see designers and businesses working together to find innovative, customer-centric design solutions to local and global challenges and to see them recognised and rewarded for their efforts through these prestigious Awards.”
“The importance of embracing good design principles is now more important than ever as many businesses around the world have had to completely re-think their business strategies to remain competitive. The standard of design excellence represented in this year’s Awards is the best I’ve ever seen in my 25 years of running these Awards, an encouraging sign that the design sector is flourishing,” Dr. Gien went on to say.
Projects recognised with an Australian Good Design Award demonstrate excellence in professional design and highlight the impact a design-led approach has on business success and social and environmental outcomes.
The 2021 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with 933 design projects evaluated by more than 70 Australian and international Jurors, including designers, engineers, architects and thought leaders.
