AJ Products is shortlisted for the SBID Product Design Awards 2020
AJ Products is among the impressive global design talent to have become a finalist in the SBID Product Design Awards 2020, for its entry into the Furniture – Contract category.
Considered as one of the most prestigious accolades in interior design and respected by the industry at large, success in SBID’s GOLD-rated awards programme is achieved purely for design, innovation and functionality of the entries. The finalists in each category therefore demonstrate the highest standards of design excellence for interior products within their field, spanning the commercial and residential design sectors.
Consistent in its quest to recognise, reward and celebrate global interior design, this year’s SBID Awards has been the most globally represented edition to date; receiving entries from 49 countries around the world. Entries from the Furniture – Contract category showcase talent from countries such as the UK, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, China and Australia.
Each entry undergoes an exhaustive two-tier judging process, where leading industry professionals evaluate essential elements such as compliance with the brief, budget, health & safety and fit-for-purpose design. AJ Products’ project Modulus sit stand conference table was shortlisted by this year’s revered international jury for both its technical standards and creative delivery.
The Judges decisions are finalised by the third and final stage of judging, where the public are now invited to vote for their favourite projects at www.sbidawards.com. Accounting for an influential 30% of the results, the public and ultimate end-users of design have the final say in which products have what it takes to take home a prestigious SBID Award. With previous years seeing an astounding 225,000 unique voters, the voting will close on Wednesday 30th September at 5pm (BST).
You can show your support and vote for AJ Products’ project by visiting our project page on the SBID Product Design Awards website.
The Furniture – Contract category is dedicated to all furniture for use within a contract or commercial interior such as a hotel, restaurant or hospital. Furniture can range from tables and chairs to sofas, banquettes, benches and stools.
“It’s a huge honour to be nominated for an SBID Project design award for our Modulus sit stand conference table. We designed the sit-stand meeting table as a way to combat sedentary behaviour at work. Our aim was to give people the option to stand up during meetings so they could vary their posture and also hold shorter and more productive meetings. This project represents our passion for active workspaces and the importance of finding simple and affordable ways to incorporate more movement into the workday in order to improve employee wellbeing,” says Laura Supple, Product Manager at AJ Products.
Founder and CEO of SBID, Dr Vanessa Brady OBE says: “Business has been disrupted for many during the pandemic, but I’m pleased to confirm that the interior design practice has remained relatively steady. The SBID Awards received submissions from more countries this year than in any other year, demonstrating the strength of SBID and the industry as a whole. We are thrilled to be the award that industry professionals want to win and for that, we are particularly proud and honoured, as an interior design body for trading standards, to continue showcasing the world’s best interior and product designs during these difficult days.”
The winning entry in each category will be announced on Friday 23rd October and be awarded with a bespoke trophy as this year’s prestigious SBID Awards Winners. An Overall Winner will also be awarded for the product that scored highest overall from both the judges shortlists and public votes combined!
