2015 Good Design Australia Awards Winner

We’re delighted to share that the Evolve Group took out two from the two nominated awards at the 2015 Australian Good Design Awards held in Sydney on the 29th of May. The Evolve Group won a Good Design Award in the Hardware & Building category for the TuffBlock, and a Good Design Award in the Sport & Lifestyle category for the Retract-a-Float.
Evolve was chosen from a strong field of over 150 Australian and international entries which qualified for Good Design® Selection. The benchmark for selection was set very high this year with entries having to satisfy the criteria for good design including: Form, Function, Safety, Sustainability, Quality, Commerciality and Innovation.
The TuffBlock is made of high strength closed loop recycled polyolefin material with an ultra high UV rating. Designed with a ventilated underside to prevent moisture buildup and deter termites. TuffBlock’s are the only block product that are able to be secured to the post/bearer for extra stability.
The Retract-a-Float is a simple solution to a myriad of problems. Crab pot floats have become synonymous with masses of knots and tangles, ropes being caught up in propellers or tangled in mangroves. Retract-a-Float’s are constructed from high quality stainless steel and corrosion resistant engineer grade polypropolene and keep 7 metres of rope neatly coiled under tension within the float itself, only uncoiling enough to keep the float directly above the pot.
The Australian Good Design Awards judges provide a global benchmark of design excellence. Local judges are joined by international design experts, all from highly reputable organisations across all disciplines of product design and development.
