Enware, a specialist in plumbing and personal safety equipment manufacture and supply, was announced as the Good Design Awards Gold Winner in the Product Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation of their ET1400 Emergency Tank Shower.
The winners of Good Design Awards, the highest honour for design innovation in Australia, were announced at the Sydney Opera House on 17 May at the 60th Annual Good Design Awards Ceremony.
“To be recognised again this year in the Good Design Awards is a credit to our team of designers, who saw the need for a simple yet practical solution to workplace safety and brought it to life,” Adam Degnan, managing director Enware Australia, said.
“Being chosen as a Gold Winner at this years’ awards can be attributed to a design journey in which the importance of research is equal to that of concept development. The integrity of the concept and the intelligence behind the design are what matter to our clients and the fact that they can depend on it for the health and safety of their employees,” he said.
Over the last few years, Enware has consistently been recognised for ‘Good Design’ within the Design community with higher level accolades each year. This year it was the empathy around creating safe work environments and the compassion for users that inspired the design thinking around the concept of the tank shower which proved most rewarding for all.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “The design team has been really thoughtful with this design and have addressed so many requirements in a simple and effective way. Safety, ease of transport and installation has all been carefully considered.”
“This is a great example of a company that knows its product category and has thought of everything, most importantly how quick and easy it is to deploy water in an emergency.”
