Solar Bollard Lighting wins at Australia's International Good Design Awards

Solar Bollard Lighting has been awarded a Good Design Award Gold Accolade in the Product Design Furniture and Lighting category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation.

The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’.

Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level.

About Solar Bollard Lighting

Solar Bollard Lighting’s SBL2 solar bollard light is an Australian Made & Owned product licensed under AMCL to use the Green and Gold Kangaroo logo.

The product has proven durable against vandal attacks, submersion, hail, snow coverage and even operates with full shade during the day.

The Good Design Awards Jury expressed high praise for Solar Bollard Lighting's product design.

“Technically very impressive and there is strength in how the head unit plays on the design of a traditional lamp. It is totally fit for purpose and the testing videos are incredible. Well done."

Design awards receive record number of entries

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia, says this achievement should not be understated.

“Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”

“There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” said Dr. Gien.

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence - it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
