MESSAGE FROM THE PATRON Australia is nation of practical people who value real things and honest endeavour. This is why good design will always appeal - for its problem solving role in creating products, systems and services that are functionally, aesthetically and commercially more efficient, improving people’s lives and leading to the smallest possible impact on our environment. Regrettably the importance of design to the national economy is not well enough understood, let alone celebrated. I’d like to see Australia recognised on the world stage for its designers and innovators, as well as its minerals and natural beauty. Governments at all levels can play a part in ensuring that every dollar of our expenditure on products, services, buildings, urban places, work places and so on - is subject to good design values.  

I am delighted to support the work of Good Design Australia in its endeavour to promote excellence in design and innovation through the long standing Australian International Design Awards. I am particularly pleased to present the Patron’s Prize for Australian Design to recognise and celebrate the best in Australian design and innovation. Congratulations to all the designers and companies featured in this commemorative Yearbook. The following pages highlight the exciting result of many hours of hard work – a reminder of just how clever we can be.

His Excellency

Michael Bryce AM, AE, LFRAIA, LFDIA

INTRODUCTION FROM GOOD DESIGN AUSTRALIA Guided by the work of our founding organisation - the Industrial Design Council of Australia, Good Design Australia remains passionately committed to promoting and encouraging design excellence through these prestigious Awards. 55 years on, we are proud to continue the important role of fostering a wider appreciation and understanding of good design among business, government and the wider community. 2013 has been a very exciting year for the Australian International Design Awards, centering around our collaboration with VIVID Sydney and the formation of the inaugural Australian International Design Festival. The Design Festival aims to build on VIVID Sydney's showcase of Australia’s creative talent and shine a bright spotlight on Australia as an international design destination. This year, the Awards attracted a record number of entries, surpassing all expectations - a very positive indicator that the commercial value of design is now being better understood and appreciated. The end result of this year’s Awards truly showcase the potential for design to create a better, safer, more economical and sustainable world. The Blackmajic Cinema Camera, the 2013 Design Award® of the Year winner is a great example – a product set to revolutionize the film industry and highlight Australia’s capability to design and develop high technology products with global appeal (Page 16).

Another is the Tractile Roofing System (Page 20), an innovative 3-in-one solar roof tile - a shining illustration of good design making a positive impact on our environment.

subject - we are happy to have played a small part in helping push this debate forward. Our duty is to bring you an even bigger and better Design Awards season next year that continues to push (and pull) the boundaries of great design.

We often hear about how design thinking has the potential to create a better society – Taste Mobile Kitchen by the Benevolent Society does just that by designing a complete system to help increase community cohesion in parts of Sydney (Page 176). Design that helps save lives always gets the Jury’s attention and no better example is the QuickLay Fire Attack Pack for fire-fighters (Page 65) - just brilliant! I offer my sincere congratulations to all the innovative designers, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs who have put their products and services up to be judged against the best in the world. The Good Design® and Design Award® recipients featured in this Yearbook are a true testament to their talent and achievements. My appreciation extends to the Jury Members who gave up their time and expertise to assess the wide range of entries in this year’s Awards. We take tremendous pride in conducting one of the most rigorous design assessment programs in the world and this can’t be achieved without the dedication of the many experts who help maintain this high standard. Over the years, the design debate has shifted from a place of confusion and misinterpretation to now being a commonplace household and boardroom

Dyson Airblade Tap Hand Dryer Arc hite c t u re a n d I n te r i o r s

DESIGN AWARDÂŽ BEST IN CATEGORY

Dyson Designed in United Kingdom www.dysonairblade.com.au The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer washes and dries hands without leaving the sink. Infrared sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem. Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the latest Dyson digital motor, creating two high velocity filtered sheets of air from the tap’s branches to dry hands in 12 seconds. Compact and sleek, the product is the fastest, most cost efficient and environmentally friendly way to wash and dry hands hygienically, whilst also eliminating the common issue of water on the floor.


CCQ Series Parksafe Barbecue System A rch i te c t u re a n d I n te r i o rs

DESIGN AWARD®

Christie Parksafe and D A Christie Designed in Australia www.christieparksafe.com.au Christie Parksafe is the world leader in park barbecues and their new CCQ is now the world’s most advanced outdoor, commercial cooking appliance. It is designed to provide safe and efficient cooking in both enclosed and open public spaces. It differs from all previous appliances in that it is totally selfcontained, so the structure beneath it is no longer part of the cooking appliance, which is why it’s called a ‘cooktop’, not just a hotplate. This not only improves safety and convenience for park patrons, it also gives designers enormous flexibility when designing for public open spaces.

GOOD DESIGN®

Dyson Designed in United Kingdom www.dysonairblade.com.au Dyson engineers have concentrated Airblade™ technology without compromising performance. 60% smaller than the original Dyson Airblade hand dryers, the Dyson Airblade V hand dryer dries hands hygienically in just ten seconds and offers a more efficient alternative for smaller and disabled washrooms. Instead of one column of heated inefficient bacteria laden air, the Dyson Airblade V emits two sheets of high velocity HEPA filtered air to scrape water off, angled at 115 degrees to span the width of each hand. The unit is powered by the new V4 Dyson Digital Motor – one of the world’s smallest fully integrated 1600W

Audi A6 Allroad Quattro A u to mo t i ve a n d Tra n s p o rt

GOOD DESIGN速

Audi AG Designed in Germany www.audi.com.au The third-generation A6 allroad quattro is a versatile Avant, offering space and comfort that compares with an SUV.

BRP Sea-Doo® RXP-XTM PWC A u to mo t i ve a n d Tra n s p o rt

GOOD DESIGN®

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. Designed in Canada www.brp.com BRP’s 2013 Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 model is a high performance watercraft developed in collaboration with world-champion racers. Every aspect of the machine was reinvented to enhance ergonomics, performance and visual impact. The design theme is drawn from the overall character of a shark and is reflected by the forceful “flowing facet” design language that is true to Sea-Doo DNA. The main innovation resides in what we call “the Ergolock System” with “knee-pockets” that helps the rider “lock-in” using optimal leg strength that reduces efforts on arms and shoulders. The result is unsurpassed control with considerably less fatigue.

BRP’s Can-Am® OutlanderTM ATV A u to mo t i ve a n d Tra n s p o rt

GOOD DESIGN®

Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. Designed in Canada www.brp.com New from the ground up, BRP’s Can-Am Outlander ATV features an innovative ride quality ideal for trail riders as well as off-road enthusiasts by enhancing its proven high-performance characteristics.

True to its brand promise, the Outlander model displays a premium fit-and-finish along with a unique cutting-edge design language.

GOOD DESIGN®

Automobiles Citroën and Citroën Automobiles Australia Designed in France www.citroen.com.au With thirty different paint combinations and over twenty five interchangeable options, the Citroen DS3 is truly defined by the personality of owner. Even parked, the Citroën DS3 has a subtle dynamism and sense of movement. A ‘Shark Fin’ B pillar sweeps towards the ‘Floating’ roofline, while two rows of sparkling LEDs flank the aggressive, road hugging lower grille and spotlights. Look from any angle and you’ll find surprises, original ideas and delightful details.


Citroën DS5 A u to mo t i ve a n d Tra n s p o rt

GOOD DESIGN®

Automobiles Citroën and Citroën Automobiles Australia Designed in France www.citroen.com.au The Citroën DS5 is a new concept in automobile design. Like the original DS designed in 1955 it steps out of the norm to create its own unique category. Today’s Citroën DS5 is not a hatch, it’s not a coupe and it is not a sedan.

DESIGN AWARD®

BT Financial Group and Westpac Group Designed in Australia www.bt.com.au When clients first see a Financial Adviser, the conversation often jumps straight into financial details.

It guides the adviser to uncover what’s important, enabling them (and not the client) to translate these into financial solutions.

CCQ Series Parksafe Barbecue System

Dyson Airblade Tap Hand Dryer

Christie Parksafe Designed in Australia

Dyson Designed in United Kingdom

Christie Parksafe is the world leader in park barbecues and their new CCQ is now the world’s most advanced outdoor, commercial cooking appliance. It is designed to provide safe and efficient cooking in both enclosed and open public spaces. It differs from all previous appliances in that it is totally selfcontained, so the structure beneath it is no longer part of the cooking appliance, which is why it’s called a ‘cooktop’, not just a hotplate. This not only improves safety and convenience for park patrons, it also gives designers enormous flexibility when designing for public open spaces.

The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer washes and dries hands without leaving the sink. Infrared sensors pinpoint hand positions and release water from the tap stem. Once hands are wet and drying is requested, integrated circuitry computes the information and activates the latest Dyson digital motor, creating two high velocity filtered sheets of air from the tap’s branches to dry hands in 12 seconds. Compact and sleek, the product is the fastest, most cost efficient and environmentally friendly way to wash and dry hands hygienically, whilst also eliminating the common issue of water on the floor.

The unit is powered by the new V4 Dyson Digital Motor – one of the world’s smallest fully integrated 1600W

The Laminex Group has developed a range of affordable, sustainable and durable decorative surfaces to enhance modern interiors, furniture and cabinetry. The range is available in 73 decors and 3 finishes across a wide range of substrate materials, making a Laminex Impressions selection simple.

With thirty different paint combinations and over twenty five interchangeable options, the Citroen DS3 is truly defined by the personality of owner. Even parked, the Citroën DS3 has a subtle dynamism and sense of movement. A ‘Shark Fin’ B pillar sweeps towards the ‘Floating’ roofline, while two rows of sparkling LEDs flank the aggressive, road hugging lower grille and spotlights. Look from any angle and you’ll find surprises, original ideas and delightful details.

The Citroën DS4 mixes a high riding urban presence with coupé grace. While the DS4 is not an SUV or a hatchback, it distils what’s best about all of these genres and creates something genuinely fresh. Walk around the outside and you’ll find sweeping lines, exciting details and a profile that is both compact and bold. Step inside and you’ll discover a welcoming combination: stylish space, light, intuitive technology and high quality materials. This is what happens when you begin with innovation.

The Citroën DS5 is a new concept in automobile design. Like the original DS designed in 1955 it steps out of the norm to create its own unique category. Today’s Citroën DS5 is not a hatch, it’s not a coupe and it is not a sedan. It stands alone as a midsized car that is all of these and more. It’s brave; its exterior design cues are carried into a cockpit influenced interior. All of the elements are designed with a purpose, the watchstrap seating designed to never forget its heritage. It is after all a Citroën DS.

The Observant C3 is a self-contained battery and solar powered, remote sensing and control platform, it is the latest product in the evolution of Observant’s primary remote infrastructure management offering. The C3 has been designed for deployment in the harshest of conditions. It provides a rich set of features suited to the wide and varied applications demanded by modern water, environmental and utility industries. Combining Design For Manufacture principles with a strict set of usercentric design criteria the C3 is allowing Observant to deliver a higher level of flexibility at a lower price than ever before.

Prior to the design of The Fire Attack Packs, which form the ‘QuickLay System’, there was no standard fire fighting procedure for laying fire hose rapidly, efficiently and reliably. One of the main challenges was charging water through a hose without it tangling.

A powerful heating element engineered for optimal performance coupled with refined vessel geometry ensures even heat distribution and fast temperature recovery across the entire cooking surface. Unlike a non-electric grill pan the variable temperature controlled thermostat ensures you can have searing high heat without overheating, thus protecting the PFOA free non-stick coating.

rice can be fluffy when steamed, creamy in a risotto or spicy when in a slow cooked meal. But how can you make steamed rice, an authentic risotto or even a slow cooked meal in the one appliance? The new Breville Multi Chef is an advanced cooker with temperature controlled programs that effortlessly performs the tasks of multiple appliances in one, intuitive & compact unit. An elegant stainless steel housing with cool touch handles & removable cord & cooking bowl makes this product a delight to use, clean and store.

The Original ’74 is a re-invention of the classic sandwich maker first introduced by Breville in 1974. By referencing the design cues of the classic sandwich maker, the Original ’74 meets the expectations of the discerning, modern day consumer and accommodates emerging food trends. The latest in technology, material and manufacturing were utilised to design a classic and distinctive sandwich maker with twenty first century features. The clever use of polished stainless steel and phenolic evokes 40 years of Breville heritage and brings a timeless durability to a modern day design.

Fueling the Desire to excel: our 50 Years retrospecive More than fifty years on, the Australian International Design Awards, now a division of Good Design Australia, continues its proud tradition of recognising the best in Australian design and innovation. Here is a short history of the program from its inception to the present day.

History


1958

1964

1967

In an era when Australian Industrial Design was in its infancy, the goal of the IDCA was to educate manufacturers and consumers on the value of design, encourage and promote high standards of design in manufactured goods and foster an appreciation of good design among the wider community.

In an era when Australian Industrial Design was in its infancy, the goal of the IDCA was to educate manufacturers and consumers on the value of design, encourage and promote high standards of design in manufactured goods and foster an appreciation of good design among the wider community.

The next big step for the IDCA was the introduction in 1967 of the Prince Philip Prize for Australian Design, supported by His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh.

In the mid 1950s, Australian manufacturers were just beginning to be aware of the need for Industrial Design – the main impetus being reports of Industrial Design success in overseas trade journals mainly from America. By 1958, the time was ripe for a group of distinguished captains of industry to establish the IDCA.

In the mid 1950s, Australian manufacturers were just beginning to be aware of the need for Industrial Design – the main impetus being reports of Industrial Design success in overseas trade journals mainly from America. By 1958, the time was ripe for a group of distinguished captains of industry to establish the IDCA.

At the commencement of the IDCA, most companies carried out their own design work. Industrial Designers self promoted, but the profession was largely misunderstood. Having an independent body dedicated to promoting Australian design and explaining the value of design to industry and consumers was an important step forward.

At the commencement of the IDCA, most companies carried out their own design work. Industrial Designers self promoted, but the profession was largely misunderstood. Having an independent body dedicated to promoting Australian design and explaining the value of design to industry and consumers was an important step forward.

With the aim of promoting greater awareness of good design in Australian engineering, this prestigious award recognised a product or system of Australian design closely associated with Australian life and industry, and which had made or was likely to make a substantial contribution to Australia’s economic progress. Much like the Australian Design Index, criteria included standard of manufacture and construction, inventiveness of design, originality, aesthetic appeal, ease of operation and marketability.


255

1968

1976

1991

Over 90 entries were received and the winning entry was a self-propelled grain header, designed by Kenneth Gibson. At the Awards presentation, Prince Philip said: “I hope this whole exercise will provoke a great deal of discussion and argument on the subject of Industrial Design. I don’t mind in the least if people disagree violently with our choice because it will mean that this is a subject worth attention and worthy of wellinformed criticism.”

Recognising not only high quality but innovative Australian designed products, the Australian Design Award (ADA) program became a valuable promotional tool for manufacturers and designers, and provided a source of revenue for the IDCA to continue its operations. The Prince Philip Prize continued to be awarded, but only to products which had received the ADA.

Closely aligned with Standards Australia’s aim of providing guidance to encourage basic levels of acceptability for products and services, the ADA was recognised as an important motivator of continual improvement and international best practice in Australia’s Industrial Design industry.

With Prince Philip as figurehead, the Prince Philip Prize thrived for the next 10 years. Manufacturers and designers strongly supported the program and consumer perception of design was growing. The battle of convincing manufacturers of the value of design had largely been won: Industrial Design was regarded as an essential phase in any product development project. Despite the success of the Prince Philip Prize, the IDCA faced funding difficulties in the mid 1970s and was forced to temporarily close in 1976.

During this time, publicity was at an all time high. Televised coverage of the Awards presentation on ABC TV reached audiences of over 4 million and in 1979, the first annual yearbook of ADA winners was published. For the next two decades, however, continuing funding issues, dwindling industry support and a lack of clear direction plagued the IDCA. In 1987, in an effort to reinvigorate the movement, the Government re-launched the IDCA as the Australian Design Council and the Prince Philip Prize folded, leaving the ADA as Australia’s top design accolade.

Under Standards Australia, the ADA program continued to run, but the Australian Design Council was disbanded in 1993. With declining industry support, new formats and incentives for the ADA program such as the Australian Design Mark certification scheme were road tested throughout the second half of the 1990s with little success. It wasn’t until 1997 that a revamped format, developed in close consultation with the design industry, was able to breathe life back into the Awards.


1997

1999

2000

Featuring a world-first online application form and first round internet shortlisting, the new program attracted more than 100 applications, with an encouraging 70 per cent submitted by the local design industry.

The program was still threatened by significant operating costs, leaving Standards Australia with a difficult decision regarding its future. Weighed down by high overheads including staff and offices in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia and limited revenue streams, the 1999 program was put on hold while Standards Australia explored other options to secure the future of the ADA. For the first time in many years, no Awards were presented in Australia.

This system created a distinction between products that met the criteria for good design, and those that exceeded them.

The first black tie Presentation Night was held in Sydney with more than 250 attendees coming together to celebrate the best in Australian design.

Despite this setback, support from the Industrial Design community for Standards Australia’s continuing involvement in the ADA continued to grow. With no appropriate professional body that could inherit the program, Industrial Designers lobbied for Standards Australia to remain as caretaker. Armed with a new business plan and financial model, strong support from the Industrial Design community and a passion to see the Awards continue, the Board of Standards Australia approved a plan from the Design Awards team and committed to another year for the Awards.

For the next few years, the ADA continued to grow in standing and support, buoyed by financial stability. A successful student design category was launched in 2002 and in 2004, product categories were introduced, the rigorous judging process was further refined and media was given new emphasis.


257

2008

2010

2012

This bold move was aimed at raising the stakes for good design once again, allowing Australian design to be benchmarked against the best in the world.

The transfer of AIDA to Good Design Australia officially took effect on 31 December 2010.

Other Awards and Prizes are also introduced including the Patron’s Prize for Australian Design, and the Good Design Prize for design excellence in society, environment, business and industry.

The Australian Design Awards were relaunched as the Australian International Design Awards (AIDA), providing an important platform for the program to be positioned alongside the leading international design awards in the world.

Under the agreement, Standards Australia becomes Principal Sponsor of the AIDA program, ensuring the strong link between the design industry and Standards Australia continues. The transfer of the AIDA to Good Design Australia was aimed at positioning the AIDA program in a new environment, giving it the capacity to grow and better promote the rapidly changing design sector in Australia and internationally. His Excellency, Mr Michael Bryce, AM, AE, LFRAIA, LFDIA, becomes the inaugural Patron of the organisation. Mr Bryce is an architect and designer acknowledged in Australia and overseas for his distinguished work in graphic, urban and environmental design, and sat on the Board of the original Australian Design Council in the mid 1970s. The Good Design Council, an advisory board for the AIDA is established to advise Good Design Australia on the strategic direction of the Awards and to ensure the program continues to align to the needs of the design and business sectors.

These new forms of recognition are aimed at promoting design that shapes the future economic, social, cultural and environmental aspects our planet. For more recent history on the Australian International Design Awards or Good Design Australia, contact us.

BANGDESIGN - joINING DotS IN 3D A philosophy and a way of designing that has been hard-won over a successful 24-year career.

It’s easy to think of the design process as being a linear one, as a journey from brief to solution in a straight line. After all, a designer starts off with a need, ‘a brief’ – be it for the design of a new product, a chair, an interior space, whatever – and then gradually nuts out a way to find a solution.

But is it really that straightforward? Well patently no, or we wouldn’t employ designers to come up with new ways to solve problems. The truth is that great designers somehow manage to wrestle a new or underlying order and logic from apparently random relationships and knowledge. Often the solution appears obvious once it manifests, yet somehow it hadn’t occurred to anyone. Put another way, it’s about joining the dots in 3 dimensions – although many of the dots are related to each other in ways that aren’t immediately apparent. At least that’s how bangdesign has always seen the job at hand. More specifically, the major thing the Sydney-based design firm has always brought to the table in the design process is an acute understanding of this three-dimensional network of interconnected opportunities, often linked in surprising ways that will lead to the ultimate destination. Bangdesign’s big picture perspective is about collating and comprehending as much information as possible. It’s also a collaborative process between client and designer; one of finding the hidden blueprint, of finding the underlying structure of interconnected, interdependent links beneath the puzzle at hand; where a design solution will ultimately be found. Understand this network and barriers are dissolved, productivity is enhanced and new opportunities have light shone upon them. The dots are joined. However, trying to explain bangdesign’s philosophy has often

foot pedals are generally used to operate the swing motors, which in turn rotate the boom, and so bring about the swing cycle i.e. when the left foot pedal is depressed the boom swings to the left and vice versa. Existing swing pedals are antiquated and have never kept up with technology in fact they haven’t been improved for 40+ years. This new pedal system is fitted into the cabin with in-cabin serviceability and weighing just 14.5kg. The design includes a patented system which eliminates the gears required to reverse the direction of one pedal versus the other and therefore doesn’t require an oil bath due to the fact that there are no gears and eliminates all backlash.

hire will pay for community activities.

For More Information Contact: To fulfil the client’s wish for the largest kitchen area possible, Containers First created a first in the modified shipping container industry: a hydraulicpowered sliding extension. With just a push of a button, the depth of the galley can be increased by half a metre. The kitchen weighs 6.5 tonnes and is fitted with a state of the art stainless steel and white kitchen. When open, the kitchen is 6.25m deep and when closed, the container measures 6.05m wide x 2.44m deep. “They had no drawings or specs,” said Shayne Johnson, Container First’s manager on the unique project. “Our challenge was to design and install everything they wanted within the dimensions of a standard container, while making sure it could withstand frequent transport by road and rail and then perform flawlessly at each new destination.” “Creating an automatic slide out section inside a shipping container is a concept that’s been talked about, but never actually been done anywhere in the world – until now,” Shayne says. “Credit goes to our exceptional engineers and builders for their creative solution”. To build such an intricate unit that was also simple to operate, Containers First had to start from scratch. According to Western Container Group Operations Manager Rick Johnson, “The only original components left of the shipping container when it was completed were the four corner posts, the roof, and one end panel. Everything else was redesigned from the ground up”. Aside from all its hidden mechanical wizardry, the Taste Mobile Kitchen would be the envy of many gourmet chefs. In addition to a refrigerator and two taps, it features Euromaid stainless steel appliances that include two multifunction electric ovens, two gas cooktops, one electric cooktop, a ceramic cooktop, two microwave ovens, and a dishwasher. The galley also features a display mirror over the prep area so audiences can get a bird’seye view of all the action happening below. When Containers First served up the finished product, the client was thrilled. “The Taste Mobile Kitchen is exciting because on the one hand it is a community space where school students, their families and friends can connect and learn, and on the other, it is a world-class demonstration kitchen for hire,” said Cathy Quinn, brainchild of the Taste Mobile Kitchen and Manager of The Benevolent Society’s Growing Communities Together program.

Working with the tight deadline of only a few months, High Access, engineered and commissioned the manufacture of the lights and poles to the exacting standards required by Council. The design and testing phase consumed considerable resources with thermal, load and light dispersal tests running nonstop for several months. This eliminated blending issues and achieved the desired lighting spread specifically for Swanston Street. A great deal of work went into dealing with the cooling requirements for the diverse temperatures experienced in Melbourne. The end result utilised a custom designed die cast aluminum heat sink that perfectly regulates the temperatures of the lights while also maintaining the aesthetic. The poles were custom designed with specific reinforcement, especially for these lights, to not only maintain the aesthetic of the street but also take
