The prestigious GOOD DESIGN™ awards were created in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles & Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann Jr. GOOD DESIGN™ is now the world's oldest and most recognized program for design excellence on a global scale. The awards program is organized yearly by the Chicago Anthenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The program receives submissions from manufacturers along with industrial and graphic design firms from over 48 countries. They assess submissions based on design, innovation, sustainability, creativity, materials and other design elements. “The Jury” met in Chicago in November and selected over 700 designs and graphics from 38 countries based on the premise of design excellence.

"We knew we had a winner on our hands with iSteam, based on the enthusiastic reception among our dealers and designers," Pinkus said. "To receive such prestigious recognition for our innovation is exciting and gratifying."

Mr. Steam's iSteam touch panel will be highlighted on the Chicago Anthanaeum Museum website among other award winners at www.chi-anthenaeum.org.
