Stone Forest’s Moso Bamboo Vessel received the 2008 Good Design Award at a ceremony that was organized and hosted by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. Drawing from hundreds of submissions encompassing every type of product from a ballpoint pen to a baby carrier and with leading brands like Motorola, Apple and Herman Miller participating, Stone Forest’s durable and water resistant bamboo bathroom sink was considered the best, most advanced, and cutting-edge product previewed in its category.
More than 500 products were reviewed by judges in both New York and Los Angeles. The panel of judges was comprised of an intercontinental group of design experts and professionals. The progressive sink is created by removing the interior soft part of the bamboo and leaving the hard exterior to be laminated. This eco-friendly solid bamboo vessel sink is made from 100 percent renewable Moso bamboo without the use of harsh chemical sealants.
Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufman Jr., the Good Design Awards bestow international recognition upon the world’s most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered basic product and consumer design.
