G Squared Art Uses IRONCAD to Design the Wing Ceiling Fan

ATLANTA, GA - IronCAD, LLC, a provider of design productivity solutions, is pleased to announce G Squared Art has won the prestigious GOOD DESIGN™ Award with the wing ceiling fan designed in the IRONCAD design solution. From the high-tech aerospace industries to manufacturers of consumer products designed for the tabletop, hundreds of the world's leading corporations and design offices from 40 nations—from Shanghai to Istanbul—vied in Chicago and New York for the world's oldest and most coveted GOOD DESIGN Award for 2010, which is conferred annually by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN bestows international recognition upon the world's most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary, and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.

In the Households Division, designer Mark Gajewski from G Squared Art in Avila Beach California designed the Wing Ceiling Fan using IRONCAD. The beauty of simplicity - the fan distilled to its essence. Its sleek sculptural appearance is a serene yet powerful statement.

“IRONCAD provided me the flexibility and simplicity to design from concept to production of the wing fan” stated Mark Gajewski. “It’s flexibility allowed me to make multiple design modifications to help sculpt the final design. In addition, using the rendering capabilities we were able to convey the realistic design visually to present and market the product prior to manufacturing” he continued.
