Kimball International has won two Innovation by Design Awards from Fast Company.
Now in their 11th year, these awards recognize the world’s leading efforts in design and Kimball International is proud to be recognized in two categories. EverySpace, by the Kimball brand, received an Honorable Mention award in the Workplace category and Ezzeri, by the Interwoven brand, received an Honorable Mention award in the Health category.
EverySpace is a modular platform that combines personal elements with functional solutions to compose workstations for any situation. Its adaptable architecture, variety of storage and display capabilities, and customizable platform allow for the creation of tailormade workstations that elegantly support users throughout their day.
Designed around patient comfort, well-being, and the enhancement of caregiver efficiency, Ezzeri redefines the category of patient seating. This seating collection includes a variety of styles of patient loungers, patient chairs, and ottomans. Beautifully crafted and insightfully intuitive, Ezzeri combines innovative ergonomic support with purposeful and inviting design to encourage positive interactions during the delivery of care.
Judges for the Innovation by Design competition included renowned designers from a variety of disciplines, business leaders from some of the most innovative companies in the world, and Fast Company’s own writers and editors. Entries were judged on the key ingredients of innovation: functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, user insight, cultural impact, and business impact.
“We are very excited to be recognized by Fast Company for two of our products,” said Jessica Gubbins, Senior Director of Marketing for Kimball International. “EverySpace and Ezzeri represent a direct correlation to Fast Company’s belief that ‘tomorrow will be a better day than today’. These innovative products help transform workspaces and healthcare environments to fit the ever-changing needs of those that use them, ultimately creating personal connections within those spaces.”
