WINNERS OF GRAND AWARD OF DESIGN FOR UNIQUE 3D BIOPRINTER
BIO X, a 3D bioprinter for human tissue is awarded The Grand Award of Design 2019. The company behind this innovation is CELLINK who, together with Semcon’s design department, have developed a user-friendly and original exterior for the printer.
The Swedish Teknikföretagen’s Grand Award of Design highlights design as a key to competitiveness and profitability. In the yearly competition, a jury of prominent experts in design chooses a winner.
“This is an important award that shows how design work has helped the launch of a fantastic innovation in a credible and user-friendly way”, says Markus Grip, Senior Product Designer at Semcon.
The BIO X 3D bioprinter uses a unique bioink to print human tissue. The company behind this innovation is CELLINK, the first company in the world to manufacture bioink. This printer is used in life science research to allow medical tests to be carried out on human tissue instead of animals or humans.
The motivation of the jury:
”CELLINK has not only created a revolutionary bioprinter, they have also made it accessible for researchers through an extensive cost efficient cooperation. By creating a smart futuristic design with a low threshold for the user, CELLINK has opened up for solving complex problems.”
Semcon has a design division employing around 100 employees at four Nordic offices. The company works with three design approaches: UX design, Product design and Technical design – with a complete set of specialists in its field.
