Rototilt's RC joysticks Rototilt

Rototilt released its new RC Joysticks for excavators and tiltrotators in late 2022. Since then, they have won three design awards, including a Red Dot Design Award, IF Design Award, and a German Design Award. Now they have received another accolade in North America with a Good Design Award in the "Electronics" category.

"Amidst a record-breaking number of applications for the Good Design Awards, it's with pride and gratitude that we accept this prestigious distinction for our RC Joysticks," says Caroline Jonsson, product manager at Rototilt. "Winning this award is a result of our commitment to setting a new standard in excavation technology."

Founded in Chicago in 1950, GOOD DESIGN is one of the oldest programs for design distinction worldwide. The award is distributed by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. This is the first Good Design Award that Rototilt has received.

"It was a meticulous design process, and we're happy to see the response from users and the industry recognition," Jonsson explains. "RC Joysticks receiving their fourth design award really is a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence by the team. It reaffirms not only the innovation behind the product but also its impactful role in improving the experience when using a tiltrotator."

From March 15 to May 12, 2024, the museum will exhibit the 2023 GOOD DESIGN Show at Contemporary Space Athens in Athens, Greece.
