We're pleased to announce that our Frying Skillets was honored in the First Annual Core77 Design Awards with a 'Notable' in the Products/Equipment category. It's exciting to be included in such an amazing bunch of winners - you can find them all here. You can see our entire entry on the Core77 site, including a short video with John showing off the skillet. The judges had a lot of great things to say about our skillet but our favorite quote might be from Rama Chorpash, "Perhaps this is the start of a second Iron Age?" We hope so, Rama.
ABOUT THE CORE77 DESIGN AWARDS
Recognizing excellence in all areas of design enterprise, the Core77 Design Awards celebrates the richness of the design profession and its practitioners. For our inaugural year, we present 15 categories of entry, providing designers a unique opportunity to communicate the intent, rigor and passion behind their efforts. From client work to self-initiated projects, entrepreneurial to pro-bono engagements, we embrace a wide diversity of design enterprise: commercial, cultural, social, environmental, or discursive. We welcome projects in all these spheres and honor the time, effort and quality of the endeavors, no matter their provenance.
Since 1995, Core77 has served a devoted global audience of designers ranging from students through seasoned professionals. Core77 publishes articles, discussion forums, and an extensive event calendar in addition to hosting portfolios, job listings, and a database of design firms, schools, vendors and services. Core77 also provides a gathering point for designers and enthusiasts alike by producing design competitions, lecture series, parties, and exhibitions.
