Along with our clients, Black+Decker, PetSafe, and Master Lock, we’re pleased to announce that our work has been recognized with two Golds and one Bronze from appliance DESIGN’s 2018 Excellence in Design Awards. We’re grateful to appliance DESIGN’s panel of judges for their consideration.
The winning projects include:
Black+Decker POWERSWAP Cordless Mower (EID Gold in Outdoor & Leisure Appliances): Black+Decker’s 60V MAX* POWERSWAP™ 20 in Cordless Mower is a new kind of electric mower, with the engineering and design features to persuade gas-powered equipment loyalists to convert to cordless. Its two 60-volt batteries sitting side by side can be “swapped” at the touch of a button, providing more than enough to ensure the mower will complete up to a third of an acre without needing to stop and recharge. Its stamina is reflected in its rugged look and feel. Read more about our work on the Black+Decker POWERSWAP Cordless Mower.
PetSafe Smart Feed Pet Feeder (EID Gold in Small Appliances): The Wi-Fi-enabled PetSafe Smart Feed uses modern technology to keep busy pet parents connected to their pets. The app lets users customize and schedule up to 12 meals a day, sends notifications once the pet has eaten, and displays the last 2 weeks of feeder activity. The design is rugged and tactically pet-proofed to keep prying paws away from sneaking food or getting into mechanisms. The device is easy to clean and operate and has a simple, sleek look designed to blend into any kitchen. Read more about our work for PetSafe.
Master Lock Electric Built-In Locker Lock (EID Bronze in Small Appliances): Designed to elevate the experience for facilities and users, the Electronic Built-In Locker Lock combines a modern design with premium materials to offer improved functionality. It offers a new level of innovation with a high-visibility display, intuitive operation, long battery life and anti-jamming features for reliable security.

appliance DESIGN’s annual EID awards are selected by an independent panel of design experts “on the basis of creativity, ease of use and visual appeal.” Other considerations are optimized capabilities, environmental footprint, and energy- and cost-savings. Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are given across seven product categories, and winners are published in the June issue of appliance DESIGN magazine.
