Outstanding Design & Innovation The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards – the highest honour for design and innovation in the country were announced today during the 2020 Good Design Week. BRAUMS PX received a prestigious Good Design Award Gold Accolade in the Product Design Commercial and Industrial category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation. Good Design Awards The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers. More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level. BRAUMS PX Luminaire BRAUMS has decided to expand its product offering. Using the technology expertise gained through years of experience in both General Public and LED Traffic Lighting technology, we have developed an AS/NZS 1158 compliant, Pedestrian Area and Minor Road (Category P) LED Street Light – The PX Luminaire – a fierce new competitor in the highly regulated and competitive roadway lighting market space. Designed for both Australian and New Zealand markets, the PX is a versatile, IoT capable, energy efficient luminaire with a range of different build options. The Verdict The Good Design Awards Jury praised BRAUMS PX, commenting: “This is a well considered and innovative design. Avoiding legacy issues has enabled the design of a new approach to street lighting. Due to the scale of the potential market, savings on energy use will be exponential. The design is sleek and the features are well considered for the environment and manufacturing processes. Care has also been taken to consider all parts of the product lifecycle including installation, use, interaction and replacement. Well done.” Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.” “There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” said Dr. Gien. “Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence - it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien. The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
