The China Post - - LOCAL -

Five of Acer Inc.’s ( ) prod­ucts have been hon­ored at the 2015 edi­tion of Ja­pan’s Good De­sign Awards for their de­sign ex­cel­lence.

The five award-win­ning Acer prod­ucts — the Revo One RL85 mini PC, As­pire R 11 con­vert­ible notebook, As­pire Switch 10 E 2- in- 1 con­vert­ible notebook, Preda­tor Z35 curved gam­ing mon­i­tor, and K138STi por­ta­ble LED pro­jec­tor — stood out from over 3,600 en­tries and will be on dis­play at the Good De­sign Ex­hi­bi­tion in Tokyo from Oct. 30.

“The latest hon­ors from the Good De­sign Award are recog­ni­tion of our re­lent­less pur­suit of de­sign ex­cel­lence across our prod­uct port­fo­lio,” said Maarten Schellekens, vice pres­i­dent of Acer Global Mar­ket­ing and Brand­ing, in a state­ment on Mon­day.

“With an ar­ray of de­sign awards from in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned de­sign in­sti­tutes un­der our belt, we will con­tinue to cre­ate in­no­va­tive prod­ucts that ex­ceed con­sumers’ ex­pec­ta­tions, both aes­thet­i­cally and func­tion­ally,” Schellekens said.

The Good De­sign Award is hosted by the Ja­pan In­sti­tute for De­sign Pro­mo­tion, a public in­ter­est in­cor­po­rated foun­da­tion that was founded by Ja­pan’s Min­istry of In­ter­na­tional Trade and In­dus­try in 1957 as the Good De­sign Se­lec­tion Sys­tem.

Sub­mis­sions to the Good De­sign Award come from a wide range of in­dus­tries, and roughly 1,200 de­signs are rec­og­nized ev­ery year. Over the past 59 years, around 42,000 de­signs have been rec­og­nized by the awards.
