27th ANNUAL DESIGN CONTEST - 2012 WINNERS!
Doug Mockett & Company recently hosted its 27th Annual Design Competition, and we are pleased to announce the winners! The contest continues to grow every year, and this year was no different. International entries were on the rise once again and the overall number of participants continued to climb to new heights. The scope of ideas was seemingly limitless, covering a broad range of parts, big and small. Trust us when we say selecting a winner is always a challenge. Luckily we are not limited to one single First Place prize, and this year there were four. Congratulations to the winners! We are proud to introduce them and their winning entries below. Enjoy.
Strato Leg - Sleek hour glass figure rounded off on the bottom with a colorful hard rubber cap. Smooth lines and elegant shape on the Satin Aluminum leg create an interesting contrast with the bottom, giving off a soft glow.
Cord Manager – Small, rounded wire managers are easily mounted, easily accessible, and great for keeping loose cabling intact in tight spaces. Rounded reverse-facing clips hug the cabling and keep it channeled together. Cables can be inserted by coiling cable through the top and bottom clips and removed the same way with ease.
Brooklyn, New York
Dock-it – Desktop mounting for iPod, iPhone, or iPad made easy. Cap and liner set includes round docking base made of soft touch plastic. Simply drop device into slit on docking base and secure connection with the terminal. Base holds device securely in place for easy touch access while charging at the same time.
Ramat Gan, Israel
Table Leg - Rhythmic cuts throughout the leg reveal the core and create a textured coil-like effect surrounding the inner leg. Unbound inner leg paired with outer coils make a striking three dimensional contrast. Extraordinary design also includes an hour glass shape for added visual effect.
