You must have heard about the A’ Design Award & Competition, yes? It’s the world’s leading design award, reaching design enthusiasts in over 180 countries in 40 languages—we’ve even gotten one. If you’re a designer, then you’ve got something to share, so why not submit it for consideration alongside hundreds of other global designers to see how it measures up. With more than 100 different categories and some special awards like the Good Industrial Design Award, the Good Architecture Design Award, and the Good Product Design Award (plus many more!).


Entries into the competition are all peer-reviewed and voted on by a design-centric, knowledgeable jury panel of design professionals, scholars, and media members who follow specific evaluation guidelines. Benefits of being awarded include a trophy, an invitation to an exclusive gala night, a display-worthy certificate, plus tons of press.

Black Widow Table by George Drakakis is based on the philosophy of a concept called “Nature On Top Of Technology”… the designer explains that it’s “more like a statement of how technology should be used, in favor of nature and not against it. It’s also a message that Nature and technology-dependent-civilizations can co-exist.”


Illusive Stool by Lefteris Tsampikakis is inspired from the illustrations of atoms structure showing the orbits of the electrons around the nucleus.
