The winners of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum's 2006 National Design Awards, now in its seventh year, have been announced. Among the recipients is Nike, which won in the Corporate Achievement category, for its "30 years of products designed to help athletes of all disciplines and skill levels perform at their optimum," says Cooper-Hewitt director Paul Warwick Thompson. Other honorees include architect Paolo Soleri, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Bill Stumpf of Minneapolis-based Stumpf Weber Associates, winner of the Product Design Award.
