Brilliantly Simple Product Design Receives Prestigious Red Dot Award
Wearable tech design firms from coast to coast are constantly evolving and refining their design strategies to create beautiful products for their clients. When we see other wearable tech design firms capturing a beautiful aesthetic, changing the lives of their clients and end users, and having exceptional work recognized by the most prestigious name in the industry, we applaud them for their success!
The Red Dot Awards for Wearable Tech Design Firms:
With the help of the Red Dot jury of experts, theinternational competition appraises the best products of the year. Leading manufacturers, designers, and wearable tech design firms from all over the world submit their latest products in the hope of being awarded the sought-after distinction “Red Dot”.
Innovation, formal quality, functionality, and ecological compatibility are just some of the criteria on which the decision is based. The international Red Dot jury bestows their stamp of approval only on products that set themselves apart with outstanding design in comparison to similar products on the market.
Unitron, a design focused company that designs and manufactures a wide variety of hearing instruments (and close neighbours to our Toronto office) has just been awarded the prestigious distinction for their Moxi Now device.
The Moxi Now Hearing Instrument:
Proving that small is both beautiful and powerful, Unitron released the Moxi Now, the world’s smallest wireless hearing aid. According to Unitron, Moxi Now measures about the size of two stacked blueberries and the tiny device is said to deliver great comfort, aesthetic, and functionality.
The Award-Winning Design:
The world’s smallest wireless hearing instrument represents the perfect combination of aesthetic and functional design. Like many leading wearable tech design firms, Unitron’s product design philosophy puts the patient at the centre of design innovation. Tiny, beautiful, and shaped through an organic and smooth design language, the product provides wearers comfort and subtlety.
MAKO’s Design Philosophy: Brilliantly Simple Design
Like the design of the Moxi Now, we approach our designs with a core guiding philosophy that is always client-centered and brilliantly simple. Our design language has a very organic, smooth, aesthetic feel, that addresses an issue within the market and speaks to that clearly in its functionality. The result is always an exceptionally well designed, fully functioning device that our clients are proud of. For example, check out our design of the PetBot – a wifi pet monitoring robot that plays greetings to your pet and offers it treats at your command whenever, wherever.
Congratulations to our friends at Unitron on their prestigious award! Let us know what you think of their design.
