SOUTH Australian inventor Scott Boocock has been awarded the Good Design Award Best in Category for his simple yet practical clothes-hanging invention, the Heg.
Designed by entrepreneur Scott Boocock from Hegs Pegs Australia, with FINGO Product Development and SBi Innovation, the Heg has dual-hooks to maximise hanging space, an ergonomic grip for ease of use and a unique lock-out system to hold washing taut on the clothesline.
No other Good Design Awards were awarded in the Housewares and Objects category.
“A clever little product that has been carefully designed to offer additional functionality to the everyday clothes peg. The designers took a nifty idea and resolved it beautifully. The material selection, manufacturing process and ergonomics of this product are perfect. It goes to show that good design can still bring joy to everyday products,” said the judges.
The award was presented at the Good Design Awards in Sydney as part of the 2014 Good Design Festival. It is the longest running design recognition program in Australia – rewarding Australian and international companies for their design excellence and innovation.
