Good Design Award 2009

The results for this year’s edition of the Good Design Award were recently announced, and you can have a look at all the winning products through the nifty Good Design Finder. Have a look at the top 15 here, which includes this summer’s giant Gundam statue in Odaiba (now sadly gone), and the Panasonic Massage Chair pictured above. The reason I highlight the chair is because I’ve had the great joy of using it on a few occasions, and it’s simply amazing — Panasonic was kind enough to send one to the KDa office, since Astrid Klein was part of the chair’s ad campaign.

You can see an exhibition of the top winning products at the Tokyo Midtown Design Hub in Roppongi until November 8.
