September 21, 2023

Leading outdoor furniture manufacturer and supplier Felton Industries has announced that its Ribbon Range of street and park furniture has been named as a winner at the 2023 Australian Good Design Awards.

Winning in the Product Design category, which recognises outstanding design and innovation, the Good Design Awards Jury commented "a simple, lightweight range of street furniture … the Jury commends the designers of the Ribbon Range Featuring Caring For Country for its timeless design that will no doubt stand the test of time Well done."

The Ribbon Range and Caring for Country Range features a selection of modern street and park furniture architecturally designed by industrial design house, Vert Design. The range includes a table outdoor setting and bench seating with iconic open loop frames, and bin enclosures with angled rainwater roof covers. Their outstanding contemporary design and unique innovation were key factors in being recognised for this prestigious award.

The Caring for Country Range takes its design from the Ribbon range while showcasing breathtaking art by award-winning Indigenous artist Brett Parker, Billyara. It utilises new sublimation techniques making it a first in innovation. The Caring for Country range celebrates rich Indigenous history and culture, providing schools, colleges, parks, resorts, community spaces and other venues with a wonderful resource to enjoy, learn and explore Indigenous art and culture.

Welcoming the award, Felton Industries National Sales Manager, Gus White stated “we are thrilled to receive the 2023 Good Design Award for our street furniture range which offers organisations new and exciting opportunities to transform their outdoor areas with quality award-winning outdoor furniture.”

Originating in 1958 they represent the highest honour for design and innovation in Australia. They celebrate the best new products across an array of different categories including architectural design. Projects are assessed by over 70 Australian and international jurors with over 900 entries evaluated this year.
