The Good Design Awards are recognized internationally as the oldest and most prestigious prize for product design excellence. The awards have been managed by the Chicago Athenaeum since their inception and use criteria such as concept, function and utility as they assess their winners. Rainlight’s Nagare design for Japanese manufacturer, Okamura has received a Good Design Award in the furniture category again this year, the second consecutive win for the collaborators as Rainlight’s Traverse table design for Okamura won in the same category last year. Nagare which means ‘flow’ in Japanese is a range of seating and tables that brings a gentle sense of movement and a sculptural statement to wherever work might take place. The collection will be accessioned into the Museum’s Permanent Design Collection in Chicago.
