About the G100
Through an annual overview of the 100 best-designed products, the independent Designlink Foundation wants to show how the product design discipline (industrial design) contributes to tackling small and more significant social challenges. With more than 35 years of experience in awarding the ‘Good Industrial Design Recognition’ (GIO), Designlink has the authority and reputation to do so credibly and convincingly.
The list consists of products that are not only well-designed and innovative but also provide a solution to a real problem. One hundred Dutch best-designed products that are not only relevant but also innovative and/or original are particularly well designed and designed in the Netherlands by a Dutch designer or a Dutch company (G100, 2022).
