After being awarded more than 50 design awards this year, as well as six additional awards from Spaces4Learning, which honor products with the ability to enhance learning environments, we are thrilled to share three products have also been selected as Fast Company Innovation by Design Award honorees: Logitech Pen, Rugged Combo Touch 3 and Litra Glow.
Chosen by Fast Company editors alongside an expert jury of design professionals, these awards represent an alternative to the “what’s next?” design strategy, trading short-term solutionism for long-term, considered thinking. The designs selected as honorees this year include companies creating products, reimagining spaces, and working to design a better world.
Designed in collaboration with students and educators and making Fast Company’s list of Best Educational Design of 2022, Logitech Pen is a K-12 stylus that unlocks the full educational potential of Chromebooks in the classroom. “Works With Chromebook”-certified, Logitech Pen gives students the control they need to work and collaborate in new ways by supporting Universal Standard Initiative (USI) standards. Thanks to its no pairing needed design, and compatible with USI-enabled Chromebooks, teachers can make notes on any student’s Chromebook – just like pen and paper – while students can easily begin working on their devices.
Making the Fast Company’s list of Best Product Design of 2022, Rugged Combo 3 Touch 3 is a slim, protective keyboard case that lets students type, create, and thrive. Sealed, pry-resistant keys and a case that exceeds MIL-STD-810g drop test standards help make this the perfect tool for learning—in class, at home, and wherever students may roam. Rugged Combo 3 was designed in collaboration with educators, administrators and IT specialists to bring students an exceptional learning experience on iPad.
Purpose-built for streamers and creators, Litra Glow with TrueSoft technology – the fastest way to bring a premium lighting experience to any desktop or laptop – was also recognized. Featuring an innovative frameless diffuser, Litra Glow wraps users in soft, flattering light for a professional look in any setting and is certified safe for all-day use. From shooting a YouTube video to streaming on Twitch or on a video call working from home, Litra Glow ensures you always look your best.
While delivering products and solutions that simplify, improve and enhance customers’ lives and defy logic in the pursuit of productivity and passions is its own reward, we thank Fast Company for this recognition honoring the innovation and design of these three transformative products.
