As seen on MacMinute :

Apple's iMac, iPod, and its Apple Stores were awarded top honors at the 2002 Industrial Design Excellence Awards. The iMac won gold in the Computer Equipment category ("Apple does it again!... The iMac is a paradigm shift that will be copied, but is unlikely to be surpassed."); the iPod took gold honors for Consumer Products ("The iPod shines as the most memorable design solution of IDEA entries this year."); and the design of Apple's retail stores took gold in the Environments category, as did Apple's booth at Macworld Expo San Francisco 2002. Finally, the iBook received a silver award for Computer Equipment category. Apple tied Samsung for most honors received at five. The awards are given out yearly by the Industrial Designers Society of America; BusinessWeek has a complete list of the winners and more.

Once again, superior Apple engineering beats all (except for Samsung, but we can live with that)

U gotta hand it to Apple, they really know what they're doing when it comes to design, they'll probably be designing the next Ferrari! :D :p
