News of a likely bankruptcy filing from electric scooter manufacturer Vectrix hasn't stopped its designs from winning accolades. A year after winning a Design Award from the prestigious Red Dot Museum in Singapore, ROBRADY, the design studio responsible for the Vectrix Superbike concept, has taken home another trophy, this time from the 2009 Green Good Design Awards in Chicago. According to the Good Design program:
The idea of the award is to emphasize the importance of sustainable design and to develop a public awareness program to the international general public about which companies are doing the best job in sustainable design for our world environments.
We certainly think the design for the electric superbike is a good one, and ROBRADY won honors for both that machine and the Vectrix VX-1 electric scooter. While its nice to see good design rewarded, this recognition also serves to remind us how unfortunate it is that Vectrix isn't likely to release any more products in the future.
