Design Award METS winners selected

The Design Award METS (DAME) jury chose 53 winners from 136 products entered in this year’s competition.

The winners will be announced at a breakfast event prior to the start of METS Nov. 18 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. During METS, which takes place Nov. 18-20, all short-listed products will be on display in a special DAME presentation located in Hall 6.

“Although the number of entries was slightly down [from] last year, the standard and quality of design we saw in the products reviewed were very high,” said Bill Dixon, chair of the DAME jury, in a statement. “Like last year, some categories have several strong entries for the category award, so it will make for an interesting jury discussion deciding on eventual winners.”

The short-listed products are divided among eight categories:

  • marine electronics
  • interior equipment, furnishings, materials and electrical fittings used in cabins
  • marina equipment, boatyard equipment, and boatbuilding tools and materials
  • deck equipment, sails and rigging
  • clothing and crew accessories
  • lifesaving and safety equipment
  • machinery, propulsion, mechanical and electrical systems and fittings
  • marine-related software

In addition, this year the jury can award a “green” certificate for the product that best fits the definition of being ecologically friendly.
