Samsung Won 55 iF Design Awards
Samsung won 55 awards including four gold awards at the world-renowned International Forum (iF) Design Award 2018. They have claimed 40 awards for product design, five for professional concept design, eight for communication design, one for packaging design and one for service design.
Organized by the iF International Forum Design, the contest started in Germany in 1953. Product submissions are based on a comprehensive evaluation of design, material suitability, innovativeness and seven additional categories including product, packaging, communication and professional concept.
This year’s achievement of 55 awards, including the gold award for the Modernist Column Refrigerator, CHG90 QLED gaming monitor, the Odyssey gaming PC set, and Samsung Power, is Samsung’s greatest yet, since first participating in the iF Design Award in 1996. They have won more prizes than any other company in the last three years.
“Through a deep understanding of what people really want, we will continue to strive for designs that enrich our customers’ lives through human-focused innovation,” said Dontae Lee, Executive Vice President and the Head of the Corporate Design Center at Samsung Electronics.
In addition to the four gold awards, 50 other iF Design Award recognized other Samsung’s products. They include Galaxy S8 & S8+, Galaxy Note 8, The Frame, QLED TV Q9, 36-inch French Door Built-in Refrigerator, and POWERstick PRO.
