BOLTGROUP Wins Four DNA Paris Design Awards

Charlotte-based design innovation firm, BOLTGROUP, recently won four DNA Paris Design Awards. The DNA Paris Design Awards is an international award created to discover and celebrate fresh and creative designs from all around the world. The designs were selected from hundreds of entries from more than 70 countries.

For the category of Design for People, BOLTGROUP and the PlayCore design team were honored together for two inclusive playground systems—the Sensory Wave Climber and the Sensory Carwash. The Sensory Wave Climber is the industry’s first playground climber that allows children of all abilities to enjoy the benefits of climbing. The Carwash System invites children of all abilities to play together in engaging, non-linear physical play. A variety of soft, squeezable, and floppy sculptural forms hang in rows, tunnels, and arrays to create full-body physical fun.

In the Eco Design category, the SmartWasher Benchtop Pro from CRC took home an award. The CRC SmartWasher Benchtop PRO is a first-in-its industry product, making the cleaning of car, bike, motorcycle, and other grimy machine parts safe and easy at home or in any small shop using bio-remediating technology.

Finally, our design for the HunterLab Photospectrometers won for the Medical and Scientifics category. We created the overall industrial design and a cohesive visual brand language to unify this family of laboratory equipment, and we introduced new innovations such as automatic height adjustment and spill proof internals, all while reducing overall part count and labor.
