3M products receive recognition for advancing standards in product design

3M Europe : 05 July, 2007  (Company News)
They stick. They protect. They project. Some clean. Some manage wounds, while others manage light. For more than 100 years, the signature innovation behind 3M
Three products recently received recognition for advancing standards in product design: the Filtrete ultra slim air purifier, the 3M digital media system 710 multimedia projector, and the Scotch paper cutter. The Filtrete air purifier received the 2006 GOOD Design Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design (household products category), and the 3M multimedia projector was selected for inclusion in the ADI (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale) Design Index 2006, a publication in Italy that recognizes select products for quality and innovation in aesthetics, form, function and type. The Scotch paper cutter also received design honors from both organizations.

“3M continues to be dedicated to the critical combination of performance with design,” said Mauro Porcini, 3M design manager. “With hundreds of submissions having been presented to these organizations, we are honored to have both the Chicago Athenaeum and the ADI Design Index 2006 validate the priority we have placed on design as a critical platform for our product development. 3M research is driven by careful identification of customer needs, and it is the delicate union of these requirements with superior technology that allows us to achieve a new level of aesthetic integration and customer experience.”

3M developed the design behind all three products in collaboration with renowned designers in one of the world’s most well-known hubs for creativity, Milan, Italy: Design Group Italia (Scotch paper cutter, 3M DMS 710 multimedia projector) and Paolo Pininfarina (Filtrete ultra slim air purifer). This unique integration of design expertise garnered recognition for 3M earlier this year as an invited participant in the exhibition, Milano Made in Design, a show promoted by the Province of Milan and the Milan Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Region of Lombardy and other institutional and commercial partners. The exhibit premiered during Fashion Week in New York City last spring before continuing on to Toronto in September.
