Alum Wins Product Design Award

24 January 2018

Congratulations to Ran Lerner, alumnus of the Master in Product Design 1998, who recently won a Good Design Award for the Guac-Lock. Presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, Good Design Awards are given to cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world.

The Guac-Lock is an innovative airtight container designed to keep guacamole from browning days after it is made. It is secure, locking in freshness. The container can also be used as a serving bowl, and its push-up mechanism keeps the container looking full. Ran worked with Jane Och and Sharon Prince to develop the product.

Ran established the Ran Lerner design studio in New York in 2003. His work is based on the core concept of interaction of product and user, encouraging touch and emphasizing the relationship between human and object. Ran promotes eco-friendly manufacturing through the efficient use of materials and low-energy fabricating technologies. He often designs multi-functional products that are affordable for the public at large.

Well done, Ran!
