Linea awarded Gold at this year’s Good Design Awards

The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards – the highest honour for design and innovation in the country were announced today during the 2020 Good Design Week.

Made by Pen are honoured to be announced as a winner of the 2020 Good Design® GOLD award for our tabletop storage piece Linea by Jim Hannon-Tan in Product Design Housewares and Objects category.  The prestigious Good Design Award Gold Accolade is awarded for recognition for outstanding design and innovation.

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level.

This is Made by Pen’s second consecutive year win, in 2019 being awarded overall category winner for the innovative Sway lamp in Furniture and Lighting.

“Tasteful, elegant, well designed and well executed. The product establishes a base from which a range can be expanded and cleverly makes use of existing extrusions, much in the spirit of mid-century Italian design.  It is a well resolved and well made solution to a wide variety of household and office needs. It will do well for the brand.”       2020 Jury’s comment.
