Logitech wins record-breaking nine IDA 2016 awards

06 Jun 2017

Logitech has been announced as the winner of nine International Design Awards, the most it has received in one year.

IDA recognised Logitech for product design across several categories, including smart home, video collaboration, gaming and product packaging.

This year’s award wins include a Gold Award for Logitech Circle, and marks the third year that IDA has recognised the Logitech brand and products for superior design.

“It’s an honour to receive these International Design Awards, recognising the world-class design capability we’re developing,” says Logitech chief design officer Alastair Curtis.

“Every team at Logitech is obsessed with the consumer, and our approach to design guides that obsession into remarkable experiences.”

Logitech president and chief executive officer Bracken Darrell says he’s proud of the progress the company has made integrating design across more areas of Logitech.

“These International Design Awards reflect that integration; the Circle Camera and Pop Home Switch are completely new business categories for us; the Spotlight Presentation Remote is a reinvention within one of our existing categories; the BRIO 4K Webcam and K780 Multi-Device Keyboard are terrific innovation in existing categories.

“Design is at the centre of every one of these innovations."

Each year, International Design Awards honours design visionaries and uncovers new talent in architecture, interior, product, and graphic and fashion design.

This year, IDA juries examined 1,000 entries from 52 countries and chose winners based on achievements in design, creativity, usability and innovation.
