The China Good De­sign Award win­ners were an­nounced in Xi­a­men, Fu­jian prov­ince, on Nov 3.

There were 620 prod­ucts nom­i­nated for the awards. And from them, 14 won the golden award, 114 re­ceived awards for ex­cel­lence and 23 won the honor awards.

Speak­ing about the event, Peter Zec, from Ger­many, the founder and CEO of Red Dot, which runs the China Good De­sign Award, says: “This award (which was cre­ated in 2015) is very im­por­tant for Chi­nese in­dus­try, and at the same time, it is very at­trac­tive for international com­pa­nies who want to be part of the Chi­nese mar­ket.

“China Good De­sign will grad­u­ally be­come an international award fol­lowed by global brands.”

Red Dot is an in­ter­na­tion­ally rec­og­nized la­bel for de­sign, and it helped se­lect the in­de­pen­dent and international ex­pert jury for the Chi­nese awards.

Tai­wan de­signer Yao Cheng-chung, from the jury, who cu­rated and de­signed the International In­te­rior De­sign Ex­hi­bi­tion for the event, says: “We need more good de­signs to rep­re­sent China to the world.”

All the 620 nom­i­nated prod­ucts were ex­hib­ited dur­ing the Xi­a­men International De­sign Week — Red Dot in China from Nov 3 to 6.

Among the golden award win­ners of this year’s com­pe­ti­tion were:

Clover Gar­den Light

The light looks like a bloom­ing flower. It is pow­ered ei­ther by a so­lar panel or through a cable. The touch but­ton on the back of the so­lar panel can be used to ad­just bright­ness.

The light is suit­able for out­door par­ties and camp­ing, as it can be di­rectly stuck into the ground.

Tapole Series T

This spec­ta­cle frame does not have screws, ad­he­sive or weld­ing, be­cause it uses a tech­nol­ogy that com­bines ny­lon and a ti­ta­nium al­loy. The ti­ta­nium al­loy sheet can form into a unique hinged struc­ture af­ter laser cut­ting and curv­ing. A pair of ad­justable pads on the bridge pro­vide com­fort and pre­vent it from fall­ing off.

MI P4 PRO In-ear Head­phone

Its metal-sound cham­ber with er­gonomic curves has been care­fully con­cep­tu­al­ized for com­fort.

The head­phone’s “dou­ble vi­brat­ing di­aphragm + bal­anced ar­ma­ture driv­ers” struc­ture of­fers richer tre­ble and deeper bass sound.

Phicomm AM1

This is an in­tel­li­gent de­vice to mea­sure air qual­ity at home. It can mon­i­tor lev­els of PM2.5, formalde­hyde con­cen­tra­tion, tem­per­a­ture and air hu­mid­ity, and up­date the data to an app on your phone through Wi-Fi. The de­vice has a high-ac­cu­racy PM2.5 laser sen­sor and a large-ca­pac­ity bat­tery.

Halo City

The elec­tric fold­able bi­cy­cle only weighs 15.5 kilo­grams and can be folded eas­ily. The frame is made from alu­minum al­loy us­ing a 3-D forg­ing tech­nique, while its front fork and hub is made of a re­cy­clable mag­ne­sium al­loy. Con­tact the writ­ers through liy­ingxue@chi­nadaily.com.cn
