Red Dot Award : Design Concept 2017

SDN Projects draw international attention!

Two SDN Projects have been awarded the “Red Dot” Award, an international product design and communication design prize awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.

The two Projects were awarded the Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2017. This year, the organiser received 4,724 entries from 54 countries. The Red Dot was awarded to 240 concepts. Only 6% of the entries were awarded a Red Dot, making it an outstanding feat of accomplishment for the SDN students.

About the winning projects:

Black Organs

Nur Faranismah Binte Rusni, a Year 3 student from the Diploma in Visual Communication, conceptualised and designed a game to create awareness on organ trafficking. This game is played by 2 to 4 players who take on the roles of underground dealers trafficking in human organs, with the objective to create awareness about the illicit activities of the underground organ trading.

Clockwork Stories

This multi-award winning Project is a lighting installation set up by a group of students from Space & Interior Design at iLight at Marina Bay 2016.  This installation is a series of 5 playground contraptions designed and hand-built by the students. They are conceived as characters who breathe bubbles when provoked. These characters breathe bubbles in their own ways as environmental receptors. The presence of different surrounding light sources and phenomena such as wind, water current, human interactions will activate the life of these creatures. The installation drew much public attention when it was on display at the iLight Marina Bay 2016.

“Clockwork Stories” has already been awarded the Singapore Design Award 2017 (Special Mention Award), Design Excellence Award SPADE Gold (Asia Pacific Category) 2016 and Design Excellence Award SPADE Gold (Singapore Category) 2016.)
