Museum Bestows Design Awards | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design recently announced the Museum’s annual GOOD DESIGN™ Awards for 2006, which recognize industrial design firms and manufacturers in more than 25 countries. The Awards elevate the best and finest new design and design innovation for products and graphics designed and manufactured as of 2004 to the present. Numerous facility-related products were recognized by the Museum this year.

Founded in 1950, the GOOD DESIGN Awards bestow international recognition upon designers and manufacturers for advancing new and innovative product concepts and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered standard product and consumer design.

The Awards for 2006 were given in the following categories: electronics; sports equipment; children’s products; furniture; office products; industrial equipment; medical equipment; fabric/textiles; automotive/transportation; urban furniture/architecture; tabletop; kitchen and bath; household appliances; household products; lighting; hardware/tools; personal products; and graphics and packaging. Over 250 products and graphic designs were selected by a distinguished jury of recognized architects, designers, and authorities in the design world for recent designs worthy of the Museum’s GOOD DESIGN Award, attesting to the design energy, vitality, and current innovation in global design today.

The Jury for GOOD DESIGN based their decisions on aesthetic criteria stated in the original 1950 Program–criteria which measures innovation, form, materials, construction, concept, function, and utility. Product appearance and aesthetic appeal is also considered. The Museum allows and encourages winning designers and manufacturers to use the GOOD DESIGN logo through a special license, the design by the late Chicago industrial designer, Mort Goldsholl in 1950, on product packaging, marketing, and promotions.
