REM-Fit’s ZEEQ Smart Pillow has earned silver in the product design competition at the 2017 International Design Awards. The ten-year-old competition included categories from interiors, fashion, products, and graphics, with a field of over 1000 entries from 52 countries across the globe. Entries were examined by an honorary jury of design experts including personalities, publishers and executives. The jury rewarded the best professional and emerging designers for their achievements in design, creativity, usability and innovation. ZEEQ Smart Pillow secured Second Prize in Home Interior Products section.
ZEEQ was developed by an in-house product development team and launched on Kickstarter in July 2016. The project was funded in just 16 hours and reached 800% of its initial goal by the end of the campaign. After delivering on the campaign by Christmas of 2016, the team brought ZEEQ to CES, where the smart pillow earned a CES Innovation honor and garnered national attention, including an appearance on CNET Live.
“We’re using this attention to propel our efforts into making ZEEQ better than ever,” said Warrick Bell, co-inventor of ZEEQ. Later this year, the REM-Fit Team plans to release updates that will add new capabilities to the Smart Pillow.
“We have a long road map, and are keeping pace,” Bell continued. “The good news is that current ZEEQ owners will continue to benefit from this development, as we will be pushing many upgrades through software updates.”
