We recap a number of notable winners in the 2012 Good Design awards

The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, recently announced the recipients of the 2012 Good Design Awards.

Considered one of the most prestigious and oldest design awards in the industry, Good Design covers new products designed and manufactured in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America. The trademarked awards were created in Chicago in 1950 by three architects: Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

The emphasis of the GOOD DESIGN program is on quality design of the highest form, function, and aesthetic—a standard beyond ordinary consumer products and graphics. The Chicago Athenaeum's GOOD DESIGN program forwards the ideals of a design process that embodies product excellence and endurance and strong public identity.

This year’s jury included George Beylerian, Material Connexion; Louise Braverman, Louise Braverman, Architect; Katherine Chia, Desai/Chia Architecture; Mr. Mark Husser, Managing Partner, Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners Limited; Jack Pascarosa, Partner, Evidence Design; Mathieu Turpault, Design Director, Bresslergroup; and Casimir Zdanius, Head of Industrial Design, Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners Limited.

Here are some notable winners from the Furniture, Textiles, Industrial, Building Products/Materials, Bath and Accessories, K&B, Flooring and Wallcovering, and Lighting categories. Find the full list (spanning all categories) at the official Good Design website.
