Already since 1950, the Good Design Award has been awarded by the Chicago Athenaeum, the museum for architecture and design in Chicago. This is one of the oldest and yet best known awards for product and industrial design. Products that particularly stand out from the competition due to their form, function or their aesthetic quality are acknowledged by means of this award. A panel of experts, consisting of designers, representatives of industry and specialist journalists, select the winning products from different areas, such as furniture, household products or electronics. The winners of the Good Design Awards are exhibited in the Chicago Athenaeum.
