Press Release Summary: Unless you've been holed up in bed for the last ten days, you won't fail to have noticed the countdown to the annual Wallpaper* Design Awards has ended.
Press Release Body: On Wednesday the 20th of February the event itself took place to great effect - winners were revealed, runners-up clapped graciously and a very good time was had by all.
In true Wallpaper* style they went one step further than simply opening an envelope to reveal the winners. Instead, the Wallpaper judges teamed-up with digital animators, Mainframe, to produce animations for each winner of the Judges' Awards. To heighten the suspension a little more, refresh your memories and take a look at the shortlists for each award by clicking on each category on the right of Wallpapers main page of their website.
Wallpaper* Design Awards aren't simply about the Judges' Awards. The awards are about interesting innovative design.
Nominated in the life enhancing category was a number of whimsical and earth changing designs. The winner this year is certainly a life changing one.
Yves Bťhar who has been working with Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, developing a laptop that will be sold exclusively to governments in the developing world for $100 and then given to school children.
One of the early nominees on the whimsical side of the category of life-enhancing designs was the golf bag design usb flash drive put forth by flash drive designer Flash Drive Direct.
However, in the shade of such a great design as Yves Bťhars $100 laptop it is easy to understand why the idea of such a truly life enhancing concept as a $100 laptop would overshadow any other concept either whimsical or life enhancing (such as a golf bag shaped flash drive).
