Australia’s 2017 Good Design Awards Winners

The winners of the 2017 Good Design Awards were announced last week for Young Australian Design Award for designers under 30.

Each year we are presented with some of the most unbelievable and innovative designs at the annual Good Design Awards in Australia.

The Good Design Awards is Australia’s most prestigious design award event for everything design and innovation, and this year we saw some incredible products and concepts.

The Young Australian Design Award for innovation went to HUG – Self Regulation System for Children with Autism, designed by Era Camilet from the University of New South Wales.

The Young Australian Design Award for Technology was awarded to Stride Running Coach, designed by Jessi Wilkinson also from University of New South Wales.

The Young Australian Design Award for Sustainability went to Dynamics in Impermanence designed by Nicole Larkin from the University of Sydney.

Finally the coveted Young Australian Design Award of the Year for 2017 was granted to e-motion designed by Lilian Hambling from the University of New South Wales.

What this entails is e-textile menswear garments, in other words, wearable technology that creates a new form of non-verbal communication.

It does this by measuring physiological data from the body such as pulse, muscle tension, and proximity and expresses itself as dynamic light displays.

All the winners of this year’s Good Design awards will be open at exhibition and showcased overseas giving the public an opportunity to get their hands on the products!
