The Season 2 winners for the 2022 MUSE Creative and Design Awards had been officially announced by the International Awards Associate (IAA). With well over 6,000 entries received from across the world, the MUSE Creative Awards and MUSE Design Awards resumed their mission to honor creative and design professionals’ excellence.
For this competitive season, COOLPO walks away with the Product Design of the Year - Audio & Video Devices, Gold award in the competition for its flagship product, AI Huddle Pana. The Pana is an all-in-one video conferencing device for small to medium-sized rooms. Its modern design goes well with most meeting room interiors. The device allows remote participants to feel as if they are in the same room as onsite meeting participants. The AI Algorithm selects up to 3 active meeting participants using sound and movement: a dual positioning technology unlike any other.
The Coolpo AI Huddle Pana’s sleek design was inspired by an ancient Greek and Egyptian civilization artifact called Alabastron. These were used to store aromatics such as herbs, oils, and perfumes. However, the stable design of the Pana comes from Ancient Chinese scriptures that talks about how the sky is round and the earth is square. This is the reason why the Pana has a circular top but a stable squared bottom for balance.
The MUSE Awards is a series of competitions hosted by the International Awards Associate (IAA), an organization that has continuously strived to honor creatives and designers for their excellence, regardless of their background or experience in the field.
“The IAA team was caught off-guard by the works submitted for the second season of 2022’s MUSE Awards. These entries were truly astounding, and they certainly bring the level of competition up a notch,” Thomas Brandt, spokesperson of IAA, noted. “It’s amazing as always to witness great works lined up in the competition. The team is absolutely in awe of the level of creativity and ingenuity that is in the industry.”
By inviting industry professionals to serve as the competition’s jury, IAA upheld its standards of impartiality and enforced industry standards as its assessment criteria. The jurors’ mission was to identify excellence and burgeoning talent amidst the myriad of entries submitted, which would serve as new benchmarks in their respective industries.
Each entry was judged using category-relevant industry standards. Blind judging was also employed to enforce impartiality. Under this approach, entries were evaluated on their own without comparison to others. These measures were in place as IAA believes that all works that gain recognition should do so based on their own merits.
