If you’re unfamiliar with the iF Design Awards, each year, iF International Forum Design organizes one of the world’s most celebrated and valued design competitions: the iF Design Awards. Recognized as a symbol of design excellence around the world, the iF Design Awards welcomes over 5,000 submissions from 70 countries every year.
As you might expect, this is a substantial honor for us and our industrial design partners, Box Clever: the San Francisco-based, design agency we worked with on the battery design. Box Clever delivered a great innovative/sleek design, including the blue touches, the smooth surface texture of the battery, and the clear battery capping….small details that add up to an overall design worthy of an iF Award.
The aesthetic design and features of the Roost Smart Battery define our product as more than a simple 9V battery; it connects to the cloud, offers a simple battery solution within the IoT category, and is a versatile connected home device that provides safety for the home and family. We’ve essentially taken something fairly rudimentary—a 9V battery—and added smart technology capabilities with an award-winning industrial design.
It looks like a battery, but it’s so much more.
Thanks, again, to iF for the consideration, and a special thanks to our partners at Box Clever for all the fantastic work.
