VIU We are delighted to announce that Viu by Alex D’Souza is the winner of the 2021 Meaning Centred Design Awards. We selected Viu as the overall winner because it brings together several meanings that are pertinent to the lockdown home environment.
It responds to distinct changes in the ways we work, adapting to the dominance of virtual environments and digital communication whilst still enabling physical and paper-based practices to be translated, included and celebrated.
It articulates a shift in the evolving role and design language of smart technology, prioritising the delivery of meaningful impact on the human experience, executed with a considered form that conveys friendliness, approachability and responsiveness, and able to sit comfortably in ‘home’, ‘work’ and hybrid spaces.
Viu is innovative, inclusive and insightful. A very well-rounded project. Huge congratulations to Alex D’Souza.
