Honoring design excellence for the art of living, the Housewares Design Awards has announced the Finalists for its fifth annual competition. These products, chosen for design innovation, functionality and visual appeal, represent the best designed new product in 13 categories of housewares. The premiere design award focused on the housewares industry, the Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business, with educational support from the International Housewares Association and sponsorship by George Little Management and DuPont(TM) Teflon(R). Sixty-five finalists were chosen by an independent panel of judges who looked for superior design, appearance, function and originality in making their selection. Performance, ergonomic comfort, ease-of-use, safety, innovative materials and technology and market response were also considered. Products judged were introduced to the United States market between October 1, 2006 and September 30, 2007. The “Best of Category” winners will be announced at a Housewares Design Awards presentation ceremony and luncheon on Wednesday, February 6, 2008 at the New York Marriott Marquis overlooking New York City’s Times Square.
