“In every detail, the Mysoda Woody is a beautifully designed product. Wow!” the iF Design Award jury commented about the Woody sparkling water maker by the Finnish brand Mysoda. Earlier this year, Woody was awarded the Red Dot Award.
DEVELOPED BY THE FINNISH BRAND MYSODA, the Mysoda Woody sparkling water maker has won the iF gold award 2021 in one of the design world’s most prestigious competitions, the iF Design Award. The iF gold award was awarded to only 75 entrants from nearly 10,000 submissions.
“This product is the perfect embodiment of good design principles, satisfying on so many levels. It is visually pleasing and useful, environmentally forward-thinking and even trailblazing in its use of wood-based material. In every detail, the Mysoda Woody is a beautifully designed product. Wow!” the international jury of design professionals commented.
Both the design and the main raw material of Woody originate from Finland: it was designed by the Helsinki-based studio Pentagon Design, and the body of the device is made of UPM Formi EcoAce biocomposite, which is produced from by-products and residues of the forest industry. Therefore, no extra trees are harvested to produce the device. Mysoda launched Woody in late 2020 after three years of development.
“The iF gold award is a recognition that Mysoda's vision of making the world’s first sustainable sparkling water makers, was the right one.”
“The iF gold award is a recognition that our vision of making the world’s first sustainable sparkling water makers, was the right one. For three years, we did uncompromising product development with our partners and created a device that is both pleasing to the eye and made of environmentally friendly material,” says David Solomon, CEO of Mysoda.
The year 2021 has been a success for Mysoda: earlier this year, Woody won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 in the kitchen appliances and accessories category.
“There is a strong trend in design from the expansion of human-centered design to planet-centric thinking that strives for holistic sustainable solutions. In all our design, we at Pentagon Design strive for attractive, functional and sustainable solutions that succeed in the international market. We are very proud to have been involved in building Mysoda’s international growth through sustainable design. The iF gold award is a valuable recognition of our good cooperation and its effectiveness,” says Arni Aromaa, Creative Director of Pentagon Design.
