MINNEAPOLIS, July 30, 2014
Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, has been honored as a 2014 Bronze IDEA (International Design Excellence Awards) winner for the design excellence of its B5 Battery Powered Burnisher. The IDEA® competition recognizes design excellence in products, interaction design, service design, strategy, research, and concepts in categories ranging from automobiles and commercial products to medical equipment and home furnishings. Organized and conducted by Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), IDEA is regarded as one of the most preeminent design competitions in the world with its scope and influence reaching far beyond the US.
“We are incredibly proud of our Bronze IDEA and appreciate being honored alongside some of the best new products for 2014”, said John Ickes, senior principal industrial designer. “We strive to build products that match world-class aesthetics with the performance and user experience our customers demand of a Tennant product. Additionally, we view each new project as a challenge to go beyond what has been done before and continue to seek new ways to exceed the expectations of our customer. More than just aesthetics, good design begins with empathy for our customers and the challenges they face in their daily cleaning efforts. At the end of the day, our products only have one chance to make a good first impression, and we feel that leveraging good design is a key differentiator in the marketplace.”
The B5 meets a wide variety of market needs through:
A panel of 24 international design experts from design consultancies, corporations and universities judged nearly 2,000 entries from countries including Australia, China, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the US. The jury evaluated entries on aspects of industrial design excellence including: innovation; benefits to the user and client; and sustainability as well as the design’s visual appeal. All awards and winners are posted on the IDSA website at https://www.idsa.org/idea-2014-gallery.
