It's official: hardware gets better, by design

By NZHJ August 31, 2015 Industry news

Some of the products being sold through the hardware channel have been singled out as among the best-designed in their class.

The NZ design industry’s event of the year is the Best Awards. In 2015, the awards ceremony will be held at the Viaduct Events Centre on 9 October with Oliver Driver as MC.

This year there are several hardware-related Finalists which are worth recognising. Across the 2015 Best Awards’ various graphic and product design categories there is…

  • Drikolor brand identity designed by Inhouse.
  • Drikolor bottle by Jamie McLellan and Inhouse.
  • Felton Industries’ THINK packaging and Axiss range.
  • Fisher & Paykel Appliances’ ActiveSmart slide-in fridge.
  • Fletcher Window & Door Systems’ Smartfit window technology.
  • Methven’s Aio tapware range.
  • Schlage Verta door & window furniture series designed by Formworks Design.

All these Finalists have been designed in New Zealand by New Zealand design firms by the way.
