Bresslergroup, along with its clients Smiths Detection, Ugmo, and Aquabot, is the recipient of three Golds in Appliance Design’s 2013 Excellence in Design Awards.
The winning products include Smiths Detection HazmatIDElite, a handheld chemical detection device used by first responders; the Ugmo UG1000, a ‘smart’ — and partly invisible! — irrigation system that wirelessly connects underground moisture sensors with a central control system; and the Aquabot Breeze XLS, a ‘bot that cleans swimming pools.
The trio of award-winning designs represents the diversity of Bresslergroup’s portfolio — from leisure to life-saving products — and expertise in engineering, sustainability, and integrated industrial and interaction design.
Appliance Design’s annual awards are juried by a panel of independent judges from industry associations. They select from submitted designs based on a scorecard of elements, including innovation, simplicity, and strong functionality for the user. Other considerations are optimized capabilities, environmental footprint, and energy- and cost-savings. The winners are published in the June issue of Appliance Design magazine and archived online.
