Triple Threat: Modern by Dwell Magazine Snags Three 2017 Good Design Awards

By Jenny Xie
The Posture Chair and Ottoman, Table Lamp, and Bar Trolley from the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection for Target are recognized for design excellence.

This year, we collaborated with Target to launch a new home collection. Designed by Chris Deam and Nick Dine of Deam + Dine, Modern by Dwell Magazine was a way to bring Dwell’s editorial vision off the page and into people’s homes—all at an affordable price.

We're pleased to announce that three pieces from the collection—the Posture Chair and Ottoman, Table Lamp, and Bar Trolley—have received 2017 Good Design Awards from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

The outdoor seating collection was a favorite for designers Chris Deam and Nick Dine, who kept the profiles slim to avoid blocking views. Here, the Posture Chair and Ottoman Set relies on the geometry of the form—rather than solely padding—to provide comfort and support.

The Bar Trolley, available in black/copper or white/natural, is sure to up your entertaining game.

A contemporary take on the traditional lamp, the LED Table Lamp has a hollow illuminated "lampshade." Says Deam, "The lighting is exciting because it's the first time that I know of that high-design LED has been available at this price point."

Since its inception in Chicago in 1950, Good Design has remained an internationally-recognized program whose prestigious awards celebrate the best in design and graphics. This year, thousands of the world's FORTUNE 500 companies, and leading design firms and manufacturers, submitted their work. The 67th Good Design jury convened in New York and San Francisco in October to choose over 900 product designs and graphics from 46 countries.

We're thrilled to have Chris Deam and Nick Dine make the list, and extend our congratulations the other winners!
