PROLUDIC Kanopé received a prestigious Good Design Award® Gold Winner in the Product Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.
The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s most prestigious Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the market, excellence in architectural design, digital and communication design and reward emerging areas of design including business model innovation, social impact and design entrepreneurship.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “Very well executed, thoughtful design. This is a wonderful play environment for children that is colourful and dynamic. The playground pieces all come together to provide a fun and safe experience to children and offers a wide range of activities. So nice to see this design-driven company continue to innovate through design. Super nice work that the whole company should be very proud of.”
The 60th Anniversary Good Design Awards attracted a record number of entries. From the 536 innovative designs, only 260 projects were selected to receive the coveted Good Design Award®.
