Earlier this month it was announced that the Genesis GV80 Concept SUV and G80 Sport mid-luxury sedan both won 2017 GOOD DESIGN® awards. Genesis joins other transportation, electronic, consumer and lifestyle product brands in receiving the annual awards from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
“We believe in the power of design to seduce and inspire the human spirit,” said Erwin Raphael, General Manager of Genesis Motor America. “We’re pleased that GOOD DESIGN® is a mainstay recognition going well into its seventh decade and couldn’t be happier to accept their acknowledgement of our dedication to design.”
The award, the oldest of its kind, was founded in 1950 by legendary designers, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and by architecture historian and philanthropist, Edgar Kaufmann, Jr. This year’s jury met in San Francisco and New York, selecting award-worthy products from 46 countries.
