7. Refrigerator/freezer "Blueprint" ID: H
Designer: Electrolux Corporate Design
Manufactured by: AB Electrolux
Jury´s comment: ´White goods` in a new, restful color and with calm lines. The simple step of switching to beechwood for the handle trim feels new, simple and naturally Swedish.

8. Heat pump "Markus 2500 Kombi" ID: H
Designer: Jon-Karl Sundh, Industriell Design AB/Per Liljeqvist, Per Liljeqvist Design
Manufactured by: Eufor AB
Jury´s comment: An early design effort has resulted in high quality in the project group´s work and has provided a very good solution in which function is visualized in an admirable way. The finished product also has an attractive design which makes it easy to place in most environments.

9. Welding helmet "Speedglas 9000" ID: O
Designer: Carl-Göran Crafoord, Håkan Bergqvist/Ergonomi Design Gruppen AB
Manufactured by: Hörnell Elektrooptik AB
Jury´s comment: Very high performance together with a well thought-out design have resulted in a welding helmet with excellent ergonomic characteristics. The design reinforces the helmet´s image of innovation and quality in an almost playful fashion.

10. Engineering shop hammer "Tors hammare - T - Block" ID: O
Designer: Maria Benktzon, John Grieves, Olle Torgny/Ergonomi Design Gruppen AB
Manufactured by: Hultafors AB
Jury´s comment: A series of impactdampening hammers in which the weight of the head can be individually selected. A welcome innovation to counteract muscle injury due to heavy loading. A tasteful design strengthens the impression of a quality tool.

11. Carpenter´s hammer "Thor´s Hammer-wooden shaft and TS" ID: H Designer: Håkan Bergqvist, Olle Bobjer, Hans Himbert/Ergonomi Design Gruppen AB
Manufactured by: Hultafors AB
Jury´s comment: A hammer with a wooden shaft is the natural choice for many people. With a new/old design, it now has much better strength, feeling and quality. TS is a traditional carpenter´s hammer with a steel shaft, which has been altered in an excellent fashion by adding an impact-dampening function which increases impact force without making the hammer heavier.

12. Electronics tongs series "RX" ID: D
Designer: Håkan Bergqvist, Olle Bobjer, Hans Himbert/Ergonomi Design Gruppen AB, Conny Jansson/AB Sandvik Bahco
Manufactured by: AB Sandvik Bahco
Jury´s comment: Functionality is always the guiding light in Swedish industrial design, but here is a brilliant example of how an ergonomically optimal tool can also be combined with a very attractive form.
