A joeycan for recycling shower water, a light-weight, compact FlipBike, cutting-edge pressurised technology to treat obstructive sleep apnoae and a new tethered tool assistant allowing workers to safely use tools at heights are amongst this year’s top designs selected by the Powerhouse Museum to go on show in the 2011 Australian International Design Awards exhibition.

The annual AIDA program recognises excellence in product design and innovation. This year, a panel of design experts assessed 232 new products and selected 127 finalists. The Museum has selected nine of these leading designs to be displayed.

Also on display in this exhibition is a selection of winners from the last ten years of the Australian International Design Awards program. Since 1992 the Powerhouse Museum has been making a selection from the Australian Design Awards finalists and acquiring some into the Museum’s permanent collection. This year marks ten years of this annual selection being displayed at the Museum. Read more
