In the category „Science-Medicine-Industry” the jury led by Marek Adamczewski awarded Zortrax M200 3D printer designed by Rafał Tomasiak and Marcin Olchanowski. The other products appreciated by the jury were Solaris Urbino bus, Renomed scissors, Motion Sensor Fibar Group and NU armchair.
„Being given such a prestigious award is a duble success”, said Rafał Tomasiak, CEO of Zortrax and one of the designers of the printer. „Our product helps designers and architects at their everyday work by allowing them to visualize and prototype ideas that come into their minds. I’m glad, that they can work with a device that distinguishes itself not only by its quality and efficiency, but also by its form. Especially, that many designers don’t pay much attention to the design, perceiving devices just as industrial machines. Most of printers are sold as self assemble kits, so it’s even harder to end up with an interesting form.”
The aim of the contest is to promote mastery of design on the European level. Being given a prestigious TOP DESIGN award may be perceived as a proof of outstanding design quality. Evaluation of products is made by the independent jury consists of top international specialists in the area of design. In 2015, TOP DESIGN award contest took place for the seventh time.
