Dyson says go climb a tree, in a nice way...

Read all about the latest New Zealand young designer to benefit from Dyson's philanthropy.

The NZ winner of the 2015 James Dyson Award is Jason Khoo, a 24 year-old industrial design graduate from Massey University.

Khoo designed a relocatable, no-harm, pre-built foundation called Tree Mount for a tree house that can be easily mounted without going through the labour of traditional building methods. 

The winner gets funds from the James Dyson Foundation, an official fee prize package from the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) tailored to his design’s intellectual property needs and a year’s membership to The Designer’s Institute.

Five New Zealand entries, including the winning design and two runners-up (Triple Skin BMX Helmet by Wellington designer Philip Leyten and Bound by 8 by Wairarapa designer, Emma Warren), will progress to the international James Dyson Award competition, the winner of which will be selected by James Dyson himself and announced on 10 November 2015.
