Dyson, makers of the high-style, high-function vacuums that have inspired passionate loyalty from design buffs and neat freaks alike, is celebrating its one-year anniverary of doing business in Canada by opening its annual design competition to Canadian students.
Eligible designs aren’t limited by a theme or product group, but they do need to reflect the Dyson philosophy of “complete design” — meaning the product looks good, solves a problem, works well and provides a real advantage over existing offerings.
Entrants must be either full-time students enrolled at a recognized college, CEGEP or university in Canada or individuals in their first year of work. The deadline for entries is Nov. 15; see www.english.dysoncanada.cafor more details.
Dyson has also just launched two new models of vacuum in the Canadian market. The DC18 Dyson slim is a lighter, more compact version of the company’s existing upright models.
And the new Dyson DC21 Stowaway is a canister vacuum that can be collapsed and stored away in a small space.
