With the diverse competition for the Good Design prize, Rukka came out on top with its Energater GTX motorcycle outfit.

For no less than 66 years, the Chicago Athenaeum, one of the world’s most reputable museums for architecture and design, has been presenting not only annual awards for outstanding architecture and design but also the Good Design prizes, honoring innovative product and graphic design in numerous categories. These awards not only rank among the most prestigious and recognized accolades for industry products but also among the oldest in this field. The competition for the Good Design prize is fierce because this award covers a broad category of various products, but only the highest quality products with impressive style, function, and aesthetics are honored with this prize. Projects as diverse as the Artemide Cadmo lamp and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner jet have been awarded the Good Design prize.

The Energater GTX outfit provides comfort in its functional design that was worthy of Chicago Athenaeum's award.

For 2016, the museum received submissions from several thousands of leading manufacturers and design firms from 55 countries applying for the coveted award with selected products, including Rukka with the Energater GTX. The high-profile jury panel awarded the Rukka motorsport design team with the one and only Good Design prize for a product from the area of motorcycling outfits. This means the Energater GTX will become part of the museum’s permanent design collection, will be featured in the Good Design Yearbook 2016/2017 and has been posted not only on the website of the Chicago Athenaeum but also on the website of the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. On January 27, 2017, the Good Design prizes will be officially presented to the winners during the gala event Good Design Night in New York.
