Held at the iconic Australian Sydney Opera House, the awards night celebrates excellence in design across a number of categories. King Living were honoured to win the highly regarded Good Design Award in the Product Design Category for both the King Cloud III and Zaza sofas.
King Living is thrilled to have won the award this year, given that there were a record number of entries. Of 536 designs entered, only 260 projects were selected to receive the highly esteemed Good Design Award, which speaks volumes with regards to the remarkable design of King Living’s winning products.
King Living CEO Anna Carrabs, says “Design is in our DNA at King Living. With our in-house design team and considered collaborators, we strive to strike a balance between exceptional design and comfort. This is something that we have achieved with the King Cloud III and Zaza sofas and we are incredibly proud to have received this award in 2018.”
The ultimate recliner lounge, King Cloud III masterfully fuses luxurious design with modern technology. Featuring a headrest and recliner mechanism with an adjustable back, the King Cloud III offers engineered support to ensure an immersive experience. Using Touchglide® Technology, the headrest, back and footrest of the seat can be effortlessly adjusted to create comfort tailored to you. The flexible and clever modular design of the sofa is an inherent characteristic which is carried across the King Living range.
Clean, minimalist lines define the King Cloud III, embracing modern style and comfort, whilst featuring King Living’s signature engineered steel frame to offer unparalleled durability.
The Good Design Awards Jury noted, “This is a well resolved piece of design with a broad appeal. It has beautiful design details that have been carefully considered for this very specific target market and its high-quality manufacture and solid design use technology in an elegant and clever way.”
Also resting on elegant steel legs, the Zaza sofa’s adjustable arms and backs allow you to personalise your comfort. Borne of the collaboration between King Living’s in-house design team and Australian designer Charles Wilson, the avant-garde sofa strikes the perfect balance with intuitive design and undeniable comfort.
The Good Design Awards Jury described the Zaza as an “elegantly resolved design piece that was executed perfectly.”
Winners of the Good Design Awards will be showcased to the general public during Vivid Sydney, from 25-27 May 2018 at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay. The King Cloud III is also available in King Living stores Australia-wide.
