Our August Lounge Collection by Gibson Karlo has received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Product Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation. Evaluated by over 70 Australian and international jurors, the design was evaluated according to its merit in good design, design innovation and design impact. Thank you, Good Design Australia!
"This beautiful and original form is a meeting point for thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship. It's a high-quality product with great commercial application potential. The soft look and blanket stitching add a feeling of home comfort and security to the design. The way the slabs of material interact with each other create interesting details that invite the user to look closer. This interaction is further enhanced by the thick contrast stitch details and textured fabric selection."
An exploration of intersecting volumes and articulated geometries, August was an exercise in restraint that balances a minimal form with emphasised junctions to create a distinct and inviting collection that is aesthetically adaptable to residential and commercial spaces.
"A fundamental part of the design is to highlight and exaggerate how the aesthetic and any decorative elements are driven by the function of its assembly and construction."
"Receiving an Australian Good Design Award is testament to embedding design excellence at the heart of a product, service, place or experience. The importance of embracing good design principles is now more important than ever as many businesses around the world have had to completely re-think their business strategies to remain competitive."
- Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia.
