A’ Design Award Winners
Each year, Design Magazine hosts the “A’ Design Award and Competition,” which highlights the best concept designs in 40 categories—ranging from product packaging to furniture. They will soon be announcing calls for submissions for this year’s awards. In the meantime, check out a small selection of winners from 2011.
Top: Designer Katsumi Tamura has come up with a clever idea for a paper animal calender entitled “Safari“.
“Sunflower” is solar powered lunchbox that combines both heating and cooling technologies in a portable appliance. It was developed by Edita Barabas.
“Monolith” is a table clock designed by Emre Bakir. It was envisioned to be a fine art piece.
“Get the Hang of It” is a paper bag with a incorporated hanger. It was conceived by Aliki Rovithi, who urges consumers to go “green” by not using plastic bags and hangers. And who doesn’t need an extra hanger?
“Live Screen” is a sculptural, self-sustaining vertical garden by Danielle Trofe.
