Daikin Industries was awarded the ‘Good Design Award 2023’ (sponsored by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion) for two products, its ‘Floor Standing Air Conditioner Unit’ for Australia and New Zealand, and ‘HYBRID CERAMHEAT’, a far infrared heater for Japan.
Established in 1957 as the only comprehensive design evaluation and promotion mechanism in Japan, the Good Design Award is a global design competition in which many companies and organisations from Japan and overseas participate. Its purpose is to make people’s lives and society better through design by evaluating and recognising quality in various design areas including products, architecture, systems and services. In 2023, a panel of judges consisting of domestic and international designers, architects and assorted experts selected 1 548 submissions for the Good Design Award from among 5 447 entries.
With a company mission to enrich people’s lives through air and spaces, Daikin not only aims for aesthetic beauty in its product designs but also for new value creation, by expanding the possibilities of air through design as a company that provides solutions with air.
