Whipsaw Recognized with Multiple Wins at 2022 IDEA

Whipsaw was recognized with multiple wins at the 2022 International Design Excellence Awards. Whipsaw won silver awards for its design of Fluidigm's Biomark X in the Medical & Health category and the MXXY Hydration Backpack in the Sports, Leisure & Recreation category. The company also received a bronze award for its Skrolla lounge chair in the Furniture & Lighting category. In addition to the notable wins, two Whipsaw designs-the Omnicell Narcotic Syringe Dispenser and HydraFacial Syndeo-were finalists in the Medical & Health category.

"It is an honor to be recognized by IDEA and the IDSA," commented Whipsaw CEO and founder Dan Harden. "Our focus at Whipsaw is to create exceptional products that help improve the human experience. Design is about truth discovery, and I have this lofty vision about the true meaning of design and never lost my passion for using it as a vehicle to influence the world and make it a better place."

Biomark X is an all-in-one bioscience benchtop instrument embedded with microfluidics using Polymerase-Chain-Reaction (PCR), a lab technique used to amplify DNA sequences, like detecting COVID-19. The interactive user-experience enhances laboratory efficiency. BiomarkX is used to ultimately treat disease.

MXXY Hydration Backpack is a hydration pack for sports use that lets you mix the exact ratio of water and hydration supplements exactly when you need it, dialing in perfectly balanced hydration and improving performance.

Skrolla is a lounge chair for residential or contract use. It is composed of 6 wood parts and weighs only 19 lbs. Handmade in California by skilled woodworkers, every detail is exquisite, including the woods, joints, edges, and finish.
