Congratulations to Dr Shih Yi-Teng, Assistant Professor of PolyU Design and his colleagues Gana Xu, Jay Li, Vincent Mao, Ningbo MiroKids Toys Co., Ltd. on winning two awards at the 4th European Product Design Awards Professional Division!
Their Dough Hair Solon Playset is the Winner in Children Products. The design provides a set of colour doughs for children to develop a variety of hair styling for animals. The combination of animal shapes and anthropomorphic game-play allows children to turn animals into their favorite movie star styles. This helps children develop their own craft skills with lots of fun.
Another design named Dough Apple Playset won the team Honorable Mention Prize in the same category. By turning the handle of the caterpillar and using the Apple's brain, players can create many creative materials for making colorful dough works.
As sharing his joy with us, Dr Shih looks forward to opportunities to work with our students to win international design awards in the near future.
