Ashcraft Design won two honorable mentions in this years IDA design awards for the Seagate VR Power Drive and the Wren V5.
The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote legendary design visionaries and to uncover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic, and Fashion Design.
The Wren V5 is a bluetooth speaker carving a niche out for itself through the use of natural materials to enhance audio quality. You wouldn’t make your music instruments out of plastic, so why should your wireless speakers be? The unique mechanical and natural acoustic properties of wood and its aesthetic appeal make it the material of choice for musical instruments and the interior of concert halls. Wood gives a much more warm, rich and clear sound not inherent in the more common plastic and metal speaker systems on the market today. The V5 is a speaker that capitalizes on the unique, natural acoustic and aesthetic properties of wood.
And the Seagate VR Power Drive improves the VR experience by combining an external mobile media storage and portable battery into one solution. It is tailor-made for the high-end, all-in-one VR device VIVE FOCUS. It helps users extend their use by providing them with plenty of additional storage space to carry and back-up their VR and mobile content as well as additional battery life.
