Seiko Epson Corporation has won a 2021 Good Design Award for a total of eight products, including one colorimeter, five printers, and two projectors, with Epson’s SD-10 colorimeter selected for the Good Design Best 100.
The Good Design Award, which began in 1957 as the Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System), is Japan’s leading design evaluation and commendation system. It has become world renowned, attracting a large number of entries from companies and groups around the world. Awards are presented annually as a way to promote quality of life and the use of design in solving social issues. The symbol of the award, the G Mark, is widely recognized as a symbol of excellence in design.
Award winning products were Epson’s SD-10 Colorimeter, Epson’s M553T inkjet printer, Epson’s SC-T7750D and SC-P8550D large-format inkjet printers, Epson’s SL-D1050 commercial photo printer, Epson’s Monna Lisa ML-64000 digital textile printer, Epson’s SC-R5050 and SC-R5050L resin ink printer, Epson’s EH-LS300B and EH-LS300W home projectors and its EF-12 home projector.
The judges commented on Epson’s M553T inkjet printer: “Ecological considerations go beyond just the use of ink tanks, extending to the materials and construction of the product and the packaging. The printer, which appears even sleeker than the previous model and easily blends in with any neat and elegant space, is easier to clean. On top of that, it has fewer parts on the exterior, increasing product strength, and is made using recycled plastic.
“Epson achieved its target of using at least 30% recycled material for the unit, yet the quality of the product’s appearance is comparable to that of other current products. This product also earned high marks because, in addition to satisfying all the foregoing conditions, it comes with a flatbed scanner, which is an improvement over the simplified scanner in the previous model.”
