From a "city to a spoon", GOOD DESIGN annually showcases and awards new consumer / industrial products and graphics designs that distinguish for their design excellence, technological innovation, sustainability or high aesthetic, under the auspices of The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
trademarked and prestigious Awards Program was founded in Chicago in
1950, by the former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., together with
pioneers in modern design, such as Charles and Ray Eames, Russel
Wright, George Nelson, and Eero Saarinen, to honour the yearly
achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and world
manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence.
The GOOD DESIGN logo was designed the same year by Chicago designer
Mort Goldsholl. The same distinguishing logo is used globally by
winning companies to publicly announce that their products and
graphic designs have met the most strident and professional criteria
and highest standards that GOOD DESIGN stands for.
