“The scope of design is more than just the appearance of products, but represents the interaction and integration of ‘contents’ and ‘forms.’ The term ‘forms’ refers to the final shape of the product and ‘contents’ refers to the value derived from the brand. It is the perfect melding of the two that confers to users the value and orientation the brand conveys,” stated Manfred Wang, BenQ Lifestyle Design Center Director, “The BenQ products winning awards fully reflect the perfect integration of design and brand value, bringing the BenQ brand philosophy of ‘Bringing Enjoyment and Quality to Life’ to the next level.”
A juried award, iF China Design Award, is decided on a number of factors including overall product design, production, materials usage, innovation, environmental friendliness, efficiency, practicality, and product safety. This year marks the first year the award has been held in China.
