SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Future Motion, maker of the popular Onewheel electric boards, today announced that it has received the prestigious Chicago Athenaeum’s 2020 GOOD DESIGN® Award for the Onewheel Pint.
Founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, GOOD DESIGN remains the oldest and the world’s most recognized program for design excellence worldwide. Onewheel Pint was recognized as a 2020 GOOD DESIGN winner.
“Pint is a rare example of a technology that enhances the human experience and connects you with the world” says founder and CEO, Kyle Doerkson. “Pint’s bold and refined design language matches it’s incredible riding experience. It is an honor to be recognized by some of the leading tastemakers for our tireless work on this game-changing product.”
Every single component of the Pint has been designed with careful consideration to create an unbelievable user-centric riding experience and a clean, approachable design language. The Pint retails for $950 and can be purchased at onewheel.com.
Good Design panelists praise Pint for it’s approachability and combination of transportation and recreation. “While Onewheel has developed a product with transportation utility, it has gone a step further in its design ethos and incorporated the fun of an action sport that anyone can do, any time, anywhere—no driving to the slopes, waves, or trails required.”
In November, the 70th GOOD DESIGN jury was held as a COVID-19 meeting online and the jury made selections from over 48 nations worthy of the GOOD DESIGN Award for their Design Excellence. Good Design represents the world’s critical mass of the design and manufacturing industry representing the best consumer design ranging from the ‘spoon to the city’ for sustainability, superior design, and unparalleled function.
