Good Design

Josh Owen’s Cast Iron Menorah for Areaware was awarded the 2011 Chicago Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. Owen’s Menorah will be added to the permanent design collection in their museum.

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN bestows international recognition upon the world’s most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary, and innovative product concepts, invention and originality and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered basic product and consumer design.
