This speaker, created by B&W Loudspeaker’s in-house team with input from freelance designer Alison Risby, is one of 200 products selected in the first round of the Government’s Millennium Products initiative. The initiative was launched last September to showcase UK design in the last five years. The winners will be announced by Prime Minister Tony Blair tonight. All selected products can carry the Millennium Products marque, and will be displayed in the Greenwich Dome and at national and international exhibitions. There will be three more announcements before the end of 1999, bringing the total number of products selected to 2000. The Design Council is now examining entries for the next round of the initiative. The entry deadline is 31 July, with the winners due to be announced in September.
