The GRAND PRIX DU DESIGN is a competition held in Montreal, whose objective is to reward the most inspiring architects and designers by recognizing the excellence of their work. Projects or products are evaluated by a team of renowned experts in the world of design, based on criteria adapted to the professions and the way they evolve. This year, the 14th edition of the awards welcomed candidates from over 30 countries, taking the opportunity to participate in the first international edition of the Grand Prix Du Design.
Novagrow is an indoor garden, allowing its users to cultivate about twenty species of herbs and vegetable shoots throughout the year. Each of these species has been selected beforehand, among those that grow the fastest, to offer users a healthy, abundant and pesticide-free food. With this product, Novagrow gives its consumers the possibility to manage their own food but also to make a first step towards food self-sufficiency.
The product is composed of several bamboo wood supports, on which are placed growing mats. These mats, themselves made of biodegradable bamboo fibers, are composted at the end of each cycle and have the role of replacing the soil in this system. The device is easy to use, with its automatic LED lighting with low consumption and its autonomous irrigation. It is also possible to change the parts without difficulty, when they become defective. This indoor micro-garden is the perfect balance of wood, greenery and subdued lighting, bringing a touch of ambiance and elegance to your kitchen.
One Platinum Award is handed out in each subcategory of the Grand Prix du Design. Based on a point system (1-100), the Platinum Award is given to the project or product with the highest note (above 80) in its subcategory.
The Platinum winner will receive both an honorary plaque and certificate.
This Gold, Silver or Bronze certification are awarded to projects and products having satisfied or surpassed, in the Jury’s eyes, the evaluation criteria of an efficient design.
