3D Printing company nabs honor in Product Design category for Robo C2 and Robo R2
SAN DIEGO (June 21, 2017)
Robo 3D Limited (ASX: RBO)recently accepted a Good Design® Award within the Product Design category for its newest smart 3D printers with Wi-Fi: the compact Robo C2 and the high-performance Robo R2.
Robo successfully endured the extensive evaluation process—one that involved more than 35 Australian and international design experts judging numerous innovative entries from all over the world—to finally beat out the competition and earn the prestigious accolade after receiving a Good Design® Selection earlier this year for both machines.
“These products tick every box for design excellence,” the awards jury noted in their review. “The units are very well designed and constructed with uncomplicated design language that gives them a unique and highly desirable form. The units were easy to operate and do what they were designed to.”
Winners were announced on June 8 at the Australian Good Design® Awards Ceremony during the annual Good Design Festival at the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) in Sydney.
Robo VP of Marketing and Design, Jonathan Wegner, commented, “This award is a testament to the Robo engineering team’s dedication to not only make a product that functions well, but one that consumers at every level in 3D printing can easily master through intuitive and human-centric design. We’d also like to acknowledge the support we received from the Melbourne and San Diego based firm, Outerspace Design, in helping us achieve this outcome.”
Considered Australia’s highest honor for design innovation since 1958, the event celebrates the best new products and services within the Australian market, with a focus on excellence in architectural, digital and communication design.
It also rewards emerging areas of design that includes business model innovation, social innovation and design entrepreneurship.
