Future Factory, the Asia based innovation + design consultancy, celebratedtwenty years at the top by collecting 8 design awards in 2018, including the distinguished Red Dot Award: Product Design. The awards were won for different business sectors underlining Future Factory’s reputation as one of Asia’stop design consultancies.”Future Factory’sdesign team has had a very busy and exciting 2018″commentedJashish Kambli, Executive Partner at Future Factory. “The tally of 8 awards in 2018 validates our goal of bringing world-class design capability to the region. Its a proud moment for us to know the global design community acknowledges our contribution.”

The eight awards tally includes the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018 two winners for the Golden A’Design Award, two winners for the Silver A Design Award, one for the A’Design Award and two finalists for Lexus Design Award. The former is widely acclaimed as the internationally recognised seal of quality and determines the best products created each year.

Amongst the award winning products was Dr Aquaguard’s Classic + water purifier which won both the Red Dot Award:Product Design from Germany, and the A’ Design Award from Italy. “The multiple award winning Dr Aquaguard Classic + is a modern interpretation of the 21 year old best selling water purifier in India”, said Jashish. “Reimagining the iconic product was a challenge. But the new design does it in two ways. First, the in-wall mounting innovation has brought a seamless styling and functionality, while maintaining the brand’s legacy through its visual language. Second, the design also reimagined the user experience for all its stakeholders.” The new design allows for quick servicing through the removal of its front casing designed with discreet magnetic buttons, making servicing simple and quicker. For users, its minimal interface design emphasise a one-point operation, simplifying the user experience vastly without compromising it’s price to market. “We won another A’ Design award for iClean vacuum cleaner, also for Eureka Forbes,” commented Jashish, “These projects are the latest in a growing list of close collaborations and launches between Future Factory and the Eureka Forbes team. It is such close collaboration with clients and the talent of our design team that helps us keep our top place in design.”

“The Goldilocks home safe for Godrej Security Solutions, represents another good example of our approach to design. This is the outcome of a design strategy tailored to the market and to the user, and represents the ability to reimagine solutions through design thinking,” said Geetika Kambli, Managing Partner at Future Factory. “Reimagining homes safes around electronic security, has helped build an entirely new category, revitalising the business by design. It has been awarded the Gold in the A’ Design Award and we are delighted that this work has been recognised.”

Other award winning products included a new stationary range for India’s leading brand Kangaro, and a water treatment plant for the German technology company Harbauer. The awards follow on from other earlier wins for Future Factory including the Good Design Award and IDSA, from Japan and USA.
