PolyVision Celebrates Good Design™ Award for Innovative Collaborative Panel System

Motif™ Is Selected For The Good Design Award In The Office Products Category By The Museum Of Architecture And Design And The European Centre For Architecture Art Design And Urban Studies


Atlanta — The prestigious Chicago Athenaeum has announced the winners of their annual Good Design Awards after months of deliberation. PolyVision’s Motif is one of the recipients of the 2018 Good Design Award for Office Products.

First introduced at NeoCon 2018 in June, Motif sets itself apart from other collaborative writing surfaces as a wall panel system offering nearly endless configurations. When observations indicated a gap in the collaborative writing surfaces market between performance and aesthetics, the company developed Motif; a fully customizable and unique approach to collaborative writing surfaces that blends functionality and style.

Designed for simple installation, Motif is lightweight and features a straightforward mounting system with no visible hardware. The 3M interlocking mounting system was designed with a customer-centric mindset. With simple instructions and installation template, anyone can install Motif with relative ease. Wout Van de Broek, with PolyVision’s research and development team, said, “Winning the Good Design award confirms our mission to provide products with both high quality and design aesthetics. Developing CeramicSteel products that combine functionality and style has always been part of the culture of innovation at PolyVision.” PolyVision will continue to work toward design excellence and as always, provide consistent materiality in durability and finish.

Founded in 1950, the Good Design Award remains the world’s oldest and most recognized program for design excellence worldwide. The Good Design jury selected this years’ winners after reviewing thousands of submissions from 47 different countries. Motif was among the selected award winners, which included some of the world’s most prestigious names in product design.
