ARCKIT picks up multiple accolades at London Design Awards 2014

In May 2014, ARCKIT - a new type of architectural model making system - began a phased launch. Seven months later and the product has been awarded Best Start-up Product and Silver Medal for Educational Product Design at the London Design Awards 2014.

ARCKIT is a freeform model making system with interconnecting components that require no glue, leading Sir David Chipperfield to term the product ‘sophisticated Lego’. The ARCKIT system allows architects to create physical models to a diverse range of scales and is dramatically faster to assemble than traditional models due to the lack of glue needed to hold the components together. It can also be altered repeatedly as the design develops.

Damien Murtagh, the founder of ARCKIT said: “We’re really proud that the universal appeal of ARCKIT was appreciated by the judges. We set out to create a system that would transcend age and have the sophistication to meet the needs of a range of different users.

“Professional architects, as well as a number of universities, are already using the system, and ARCKIT is even being stocked at the world-famous Harrods store. ARCKIT is a product for life, we envisage a young student using the same kit throughout their entire professional design career.”
