Body Organics, a West End company of more than 20 years, received a prestigious Gold Accolade at the Australian Good Design Awards last week, Australia’s most prestigious design awards that date back to 1958. The consumer and sports product, Makarlu Lotus, was honoured in the Product Design category which recognises outstanding design and innovation.

The 2019 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with close to 700 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards. The jury spent several days evaluating 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 all areas to convince the jury they are worthy of recognition. The Good Design Awards Jury praised Makarlu Lotus, commenting: “ A beautiful and well thought through design which makes this a highly effective studio prop. The magnetic nested domes are very stable with textures that add style to what is a really well-made product. The nesting doll joining is really clever. ”

Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre of entries received this year. 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 improve our quality of life. These projects showcase the brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world.”
