The ADEX Awards is the largest and most prestigious awards competition recognizing superior product design of furnishings marketed through the international design trade. Products are judged by a distinguished jury of professionals representing a cross section of the Architecture & Design community.

“The Award for Design Excellence is given annually to companies that exhibit an unwavering commitment to design and innovation,” said John Platter, Director of Awards for Design Excellence. “Human Touch continues to set the bar high with its new massage chairs. Not only are they state-of-the-art in terms of features, but they also have a sleek design that is reminiscent of Le Corbusier furniture.”

The HT-5040 WholeBody massage chair received the highest honor of Platinum for its artful blend of advanced massage features and design, while the iJoy-2310 robotic massage chair received a Gold award for its appealing and compact design, state-of-the-art massage programs, and affordability.
