Csiszer Design Studio received the Healthcare Design Award at the SBID International Design Awards 2017. The practice picked up the accolade for its project, Apheresis Centre, at a dazzling ceremony at the prestigious Dorchester hotel in London's Mayfair on Friday 27 October 2017.

The interior design of the 800-square-metre healthcare institution centres around a sense of hygiene as well as ensuring the centre appeals to potential donors. The brief required it to be spotlessly clean but also friendly and without the austere atmosphere of a typical healthcare setting; this influenced the choice of colours, materials and spatial qualities.

Timea Kulcsár from the practice says, "With this project, we were very excited as it was a new challenge for us to do a medical centre, and we didn't think we would gain so much from the project. We have since completed three more medical centres and to be chosen to be a finalist and now become a winner is such an achievement for us. I think it's just amazing that when you make one step, you never know how much more is awaiting you – so we are very honoured to receive this prize and very proud because it's always good to be acknowledged by such professionals."

The names of the winners in all 14 categories were revealed at the ceremony on 27 October 2017. With a 40% increase in entries and over 100,000 public votes, this year's awards have been one of the most globally represented editions to date. They showcase industry talent from over 40 countries and feature projects with high-flying super brands from across the globe.

SBID President, Vanessa Brady OBE said: "We're now in the seventh edition of the Awards and each year the support and volume of entries surprises and delights us. Now a firmly established event on the international design calendar, the SBID Awards is one of the most exciting celebrations of design excellence for the global industry."

Enterprise Mobility for Explosion-Hazardous Areas

Smartphones and tablets are now indispensable in both private and professional environments. They are the cornerstones of a new technological era in industry. The networking of people, processes, machines, and systems is also the biggest challenge and opportunity of today's world. Companies that make use of the possibilities of digitalization will benefit from more effective production, work, and maintenance processes, as well as streamlined decision-making processes and higher margins. However, to exploit the advantages made possible by Industrie 4.0 in terms of competitiveness, productivity, and profitability, no single solution is crucial; rather, an integrated, compatible portfolio of solutions based around the networked "mobile worker."
