We are proud to announce that our PAPR has won a Gold Award at the International Design Awards in the Industrial And Life Science Design / Safety Designs category.

The IDA is one of the most prestigious awards that designers can enter. The 2020 IDA attracted thousands of outstanding designs submitted by companies and designers around the world competing for the top prizes in this prestigious award.

“The IDA seeks out truly visionary designers showcasing creativity and innovation. As the world struggled with an unprecedented challenge in 2020 due to the pandemic, the IDA received a record number of outstanding entries which presented the jury with an enormous task in selecting the winners,” commented Jill Grinda, VP Marketing and Business Development for the IDA.

Evaluating submissions from more than 80 countries, the IDA jury saw entries exhibiting the highest current design standards across the five Award disciplines - Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic and Fashion Design. Each design entry was assessed on its own merits by the professional IDA Jury panel. Concerning the Ideso PAPR, the IDA jury stated: “Impressed with the concept, the R&D to date and the response. One of the strongest entrants in the category certainly merits an award.”

Ideso is the only South African company to win an IDA award for Product Design in 2020.
