The Australian company, Specialised Solutions, recently picked up one of the coveted Good Design Awards in the Furniture & Lighting category for its Sedi Connect Solar bench.  These awards are presented annually by the Australian Design Council whose Good Design Awards program is one of the oldest and most prestigious international design awards in the world, promoting excellence in design and innovation since 1958. It is recognised by the World Design Organization (WDO) as Australia’s peak international design endorsement program.

Winners of the awards are able to use the green ‘Good Design Tick’ mark which is among the most respected and recognised international design endorsement symbols in the industry.

The Good Design Tick of approval is a visible indicator of good design and a brand’s commitment to excellence in design and innovation. It assures consumers that a product, project or service displaying the Tick has been professionally designed to the highest standards and put through rigorous testing by an independent panel of design experts using a comprehensive evaluation process.

The solar products under the Specialized Solutions ‘Sedi’ label were created from the desire to bring technological advancement to the public realm, in a self-efficient furniture form that inspires and intrigues. Sedi products are the manifestation of this ideal - with responsive designs that represent a new level of comfort, amenity, connectivity and sustainability in a piece of standalone urban furniture.

The flagship product, ‘Sedi Connect’ is a particularly uniquely designed solar seating unit with a wrap-around steel and wood structure offering a welcoming place to meet, interact and enjoy.  With one of the largest solar panels in its class with standard features like phone charging outlets, ambient and overhead lighting, WiFi hot spot, it also offers the opportunity for extensive customization with a host of devices – CCTV cameras, e-Paper displays, heated seating, environmental sensors, Bluetooth speakers etc. Not only that, it features extensive use of Australian hardwood timber which completely lines the inside of the durable steel cocoon, one of the most distinctive features of this impressive seating unit.
