Three years ago, we started researching how to reduce healthcare-associated infections. We knew we had exceptional capabilities in solid surface, and knew it was underutilized, mainly as countertops. Using evidence-based design principles, we invited healthcare partners to share their expertise, and asked them to test our end product in real-life beta applications.

We took solid surface – an underused material that mainly appeared in countertops – and used it to create an elegant, smart product for healthcare environments.

Shield is thrilled to have been recognized in this prestigious awards program. With a passion for creating highly crafted, beautiful products and an insatiable curiosity to create better widgets, this is just our beginning.

A global architecture award program, the Architizer A+ awards received more than 1,500 entries from more than 100 countries for the 2014 competition. The program’s more than 300 jurors included CEOs and founders from companies and organizations such as Zappos, Architecture for Humanity and MoMA.

The A+ awards’ category and popular choice winners will be announced April 1, and the program’s Awards Gala is May 15 in New York City. Don’t forget to vote, and please help Shield win by sharing this post!
