The second edition of China Good Design honours 158 outstanding designs across diverse product segments.
November 15th, 2016
China has various design awards, but none quite like China Good Design. Organised by Red Dot, which is already well-known globally for its prestigious Red Dot Design Award, China Good Design is seen as the first independent design competition in the country.
China Good Design was set up in 2015 to give recognition to outstanding works by companies both locally and abroad, and to bring them to the attention of the huge – and increasingly sophisticated – China market.
The winners of China Good Design 2016 were announced in an awards ceremony on 30 October in Xiamen. A total of 2,098 submissions were entered this year, with the projects coming from China, Singapore, Germany, America, the Netherlands, and South Korea.
Out of these, 158 works were awarded across 31 highly diverse categories, from Living Rooms and Bedrooms to Households, Interior Design, Fashion, lifestyle and accessories, Sports, Communication, and more.
Fifteen of the winning entries took home the Gold. Among them were a meditation seat, a smart home robot, a body analyser, and a teahouse.
China Good Design follows the same stringent judging standards that the Red Dot Design Award is famous for. This year’s international jury consisted of 12 independent industry experts, including Gordon Bruce (USA), Martin Darbyshire (UK), and Prof. Renke He (China).
The winners of China Good Design 2016 had the opportunity to present their company and innovative products on a national stage, and take part in a special exhibition during Xiamen International Design Week – Red Dot (from 29 October to 1 November 2016).
For those who may have missed this year’s awards, keep watch for China Good Design 2017.
