Worx Switchdriver

The WORX 20V Switchdriver 2-in-1 Drill and Driver has won a Gold award in the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA®) 2017, hosted by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA). Switchdriver won in the Home & Bath category.

Among the Top Award Winners, 25 designs won Gold and 52 designs won Silver, which were announced August 19 at the IDEA Ceremony.

Jeanne White, WORX Senior Product Manager said,

“It’s an honor to be recognized by IDSA. We believe that Switchdriver is a concept whose time has come. Our approach was to make this drill and driver smart, functional and efficient.”

IDEA 2017 Jury Chair Owen Foster said,

IDSA IDEA 2017 winners demonstrate how designers are able to capture what’s invisible to others and inspire beauty through the smallest of details within the simplest of artifacts. Winners go beyond the tangible that we are so accustomed to seeing—to cultivate amazing, holistic ecosystems.”

Foster led more than two dozen, global design experts in judging 20 categories covering products, brands, experiences, strategies and more. Onsite jurying was held in May 2017 at the newly-renamed Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, MI.

Proving design truly is a universal language, IDEA attracted hundreds of entries from 54 countries on six continents. Innovations abound in the latest winners submitted by design firms, corporations, universities and more.

About the WORX Switchdriver

Switchdriver has a rotating head with two ¼-inch chucks that can be loaded with different combinations of drill or driver bits. This allows the user to drill a pilot hole, for example, and quickly rotate the head to switch chucks and sink the screw with a driver bit. These quick-release chucks are easy to load and accept standard hex-shaped bits, which are widely available at hardware stores and home centers. This tool has plenty of power and to handle a wide range of projects.
