The International Design Awards, in collaboration with the European Product Design Awards, recently issued a call for entries to the Covid-19 Design Innovation Grant, as a way to find and support those who were working to provide innovative solutions to tackle some of the most pressing problems and needs during the Coronavirus Pandemic. The response was overwhelming, with hundreds of creative designs submitted from all over the world.

Our thanks appreciation go out to all of those who used their time and skill and passion to help meet the needs of their community and the world during this truly challenging time.

Below are the Top 10 picks in the category of Architecture and Interior Design, which challenged designers to present a simple, practical, innovative solution for an in-home isolation pod that would allow those with COVID-19 symptoms and others to safely co-habit without transmitting the virus.

The Winner of the $5,000 Grant is Sarah Goldblatt – Safe Shed. Congratulations!
