Daikin products awarded Good Design Award 2023


Daikin Industries receives the “Good Design Award 2023” for its innovative “Floor Standing Air Conditioner Unit” designed for Australia and New Zealand, and the “HYBRID CERAMHEAT,” a far infrared heater for Japan.

Daikin Industries, Ltd. was awarded the “Good Design Award 2023” (sponsored by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion) for two products, its “Floor Standing Air Conditioner Unit” for Australia and New Zealand and “HYBRID CERAMHEAT,” a far infrared heater for Japan.

Established in 1957 as the only comprehensive design evaluation and promotion mechanism in Japan, the Good Design Award is a global design competition in which many companies and organizations from Japan and overseas participate. Its purpose is to make people’s lives and society better through design by evaluating and recognizing quality in various design areas including products, architecture, systems, and services. In 2023, a panel of judges consisting of domestic and international designers, architects, and assorted experts selected 1,548 submissions for the Good Design Award from among 5,447 entries.

With a company mission to enrich people’s lives through air and spaces, Daikin not only aims for aesthetic beauty in its product designs but also for new value creation by expanding the possibilities of air through design as a company that provides solutions with air.

Floor Standing Air Conditioning Unit

The floor standing air conditioning unit is an environmentally conscious air conditioner that harmonizes with the local style of heating. In southern Australia and New Zealand, residents use indoor heating for more than half of the year, and fireplaces and hot water radiators are mainstream for their ability to thoroughly warm the body. However, with greater environmental awareness, people are increasingly replacing their existing heating systems for heat pump heating. Using Daikin’s unique two-way airflow, the product will undoubtedly be a favorite among local residents for delivering warmth in a similar fashion to that of a fireplace. It also has a function that quickly emits heat along the entire floor for people who only want to warm their feet. Slits were adopted in the front panel design to resemble hot water radiators and lend a nostalgic touch. The indoor unit can also be installed in the wall to free up space. In the future, Daikin plans to expand the product to Japan and North America.

Far Infrared Heater “HYBRID CERAMHEAT”

This hybrid heater combines far infrared rays and warm air to provide users with an experience similar to relaxing in front of a fireplace. The front panel structure conceals internal mechanisms while providing both warmth and a stylish interior design. Safety is also taken into account with a perforated metal structure that suppresses temperature increases on the device surface. Product color and surface texturing*1 create a warm design inspired by fireplaces and ironware.
