Spark Awards Announce 2016 Product & Concept Design Winners

Product Design highlights include six winners in the top tier Spark!

Also notable is the Waterfront Aircraft Seating System, by the design teams at B/E Aerospace, Panasonic Avionics, TEAGUE and Formation Design Group. Spark Winners may be viewed at the Spark Galleries. >HERE

The jury, chaired by IDEO Founder Mike Nuttall, faced a day of difficult choices. However, by the end of the judging, the choice of the top submissions was clear. Juror Arnold Wasserman summed up the work, "In reviewing this year's SPARK winners overall, the jury noted a direction toward simplicity, fun and invisible technology - a trend to celebrate design and utility and hide the complicated technical stuff."

Asked about the efficacy of Design Awards, Spark Juror John Guenther, ex-Director of Design, Hewlett-Packard commented, "Competitions level the playing field by making visible new and innovative design thinking from everyone from students to small design firms."

Even big design organizations are surprisingly thrilled to have the intensity of design innovation made publicly visible by design competitions, especially from small firms or individuals.  It benefits them and all by continuously raising the bar of excellence and striving to always move the profession forward. It's one of the important ways we benchmark our profession."
