American Seating Recipient of Two Design Awards
American Seating recently accepted international design awards on behalf of two of its transportation seating designs.
The company’s InSight® product line received the 2010 iF (International Forum) product design award, presented in Hanover, Germany. It was one of 778 products honored from among 2,486 entries from 39 different countries; other winning companies included BMW, Sony, Apple, and Porsche. The product line features a slim-line, one-piece sculpted seat module; the choice of high-back and fabric-back models; and a generous personal sitting area and legroom.
The 2009 International Good Design Awards, presented by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, recognized American Seating’s Vision™ product in its transportation category. The contoured stainless steel seat, usable in bus or rail settings, was selected from 3,000 submissions after being reviewed by a panel of 70 design judges.
