SELF-DISCLOSURE / INSTITUTE OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGN (INSTYTUT WZORNICTWA PRZEMYSŁOWEGO – IWP.PL)

We are extremely pleased to inform you about our two projects awarded in the Good Design 2015 competition organized by the Institute of Industrial Design. Our projects were appreciated by a multidisciplinary jury led by Katarzyna Rzehak, IWP Creative Director. Both products were awarded in two categories (out of seven) and were selected from nearly 130 entries.

Good Design 2015 in the Working Environment category goes to:

Reeco Premium Anti-Static Worktable

Project Coordinator – Zbigniew Łysoniewski, Designer – Rafał Piłat

Producer: Renex

Justification:

The Jury indicated excellent product fitting to the needs of a specific market of workplace organization, where ergonomic requirements are most significant because they determine safety and efficiency. The Reeco worktable is a necessary installation in the rooms where electronic and electrotechnical devices are produced and wherever electrostatic discharge should be prevented. A specialist tabletop with a core conducting static charge was covered with HPL, and the structure was secured with anti-static paint. The tabletop can be positioned on different heights, which also works well for disabled employees or those working in wheelchairs. The worktable is a democratic product and its exceptionally affordable price may influence its distribution on the Polish market.

Good Design 2015 in the Services Category goes to:

Sher.ly – an application and device for sharing files

Project: Błażej Marciniak and Marek Cieśla

Service Provider:  Sher.ly sp. z o.o.

Justification:

The JURY indicated an intelligent reaction to clients’ needs, recognized by the SHER.ly designers. On the one hand, users are eager to use clouds and external servers, on the other hand, a question of data safety and confidentiality arises. The SHER.ly service is a perfectly developed safe local cloud together with a well-designed application enabling file sharing. Such simple and automated file sharing combined with a safe and controlled data flow responds to the needs of contemporary users.
