Design Knowledge Intermediary
Appliance Design magazine has announced the winners of its 22nd Annual Excellence in Design competition.

Entrants were evaluated by an independent panel of three experts in the field of design. The products were judged by four criteria: aesthetics, human factors, innovation, and technical merits.

Products were entered into one of several categories. The winning entries, listed by category below, received recognition at one of three levels: Gold, Silver, or Bronze.

A feature section showcasing the winning entries will appear in the June 2009 issue of Appliance Design.

Details about next year’s EID competition will be announced in November.
