Logitech wins awards for the art of good design

23 Jan 2019

What makes a good design? Logitech may know a thing or two about that, after the company scooped 10 awards in the 2018 GOOD DESIGN Awards run by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.

“It’s such an honour to be awarded GOOD DESIGN Awards,” boasts Logitech’s chief design officer Alastair Curtis 

“Celebrating design across several brands including Logitech, Ultimate Ears, Jaybird and Logitech G, these awards are a testament to the care we put into innovation across our functions at Logitech, across all of our brands. By focusing on our customers and keeping design at the centre of everything we create, we can tailor each experience to their unique needs and interests, and strive to create something truly special.”

Logitech won across four different brands – and it’s also the eighth year in a row that Logitech products have been recognised. So which ones made the cut? (Some products are not available in New Zealand - these are indicated by an asterix *.)

●      Logitech CRAFT Advanced Keyboard
