Best of the Best: IDSA IDEA 2017 Unveils Gold and Silver Winning Product Designs
Date:8/21/2017

The Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) hosted the 37th annual International Design Excellence Awards (IDSA IDEA®) 2017 Ceremony and Gala on Aug. 19, 2017 in Atlanta, GA—revealing which 25 designs won Gold and which 52 designs won Silver in one of the world’s most prestigious and rigorous design competitions. See all the winners at http://www.idsa.org/awards/idea/gallery.

“I hope you’re as excited as we are by the future of design excellence on display,” declared IDSA IDEA 2017 Jury Chair Owen Foster, IDSA, at the red carpet event at the Woodruff Arts Center's Rich Theatre. “It’s an honor to present these awards to the winners and to celebrate design excellence with all of you. It’s no small task to judge designs submitted by peers from around the world. I’d like to thank my fellow jurors for their hard work.”

Foster led more than two dozen, global design experts in judging categories covering products, experiences, strategies and more—including two new categories this year: consumer technology and branding. Onsite jurying was held in May at the newly-renamed Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, MI.

IDEA 2017 attracted hundreds of entries from 54 countries on six continents. "We had representation from all over the world,” said IDSA Board of Directors Chair Emeritus John Barratt, president and CEO of TEAGUE. "The level of competition is extreme. It’s an incredible achievement to win.”

Bronze winners were announced on June 29, while Gold and Silver winners were announced by Foster—and The Henry Ford's Chief Curator and IDEA 2017 Juror Marc Greuther—at the ceremony on Aug. 19.

Here are the special award winners:

•Best in Show Award: Microsoft HoloLens by Microsoft Device Design is touted as the first, self-contained, untethered holographic computer that embeds content and applications into physical surroundings to see, place and interact as if holograms are part of the physical world. This mixed reality is enabling new ways to create, communicate, work and play.
