On Thursday 17th of March Facett received the 2018 Australian Good Design Award® of the Year at a ceremony held at the Sydney Opera House. It was also awarded Best in Class for Product Design (Medical and Scientific) and Social Innovation, as well as the CSIRO Design Innovation award.
The judges commented, “Facett has incredible potential to make a very positive impact on people’s lives who suffer from hearing loss. The use of rechargeable batteries and magnetic coupling is highly innovative. The stunning jewel-like design does well to remove the stigma of hearing aids by drawing parallels to jewellery and wearable art.
Exquisite detailing, high-end technology and excellence in design make this a stand-out product that should be recognised and celebrated at the highest levels.”
"Conversations and music are clearer and to hear the first drops of rain falling and dry leaves skittering along the ground in the wind
made me realise just how much I had been missing. Marvellous."
