Sir Terence Conran
Ecuadorian design student Santiago Ortega Haboud receives Tivoli Audio design prize

Sir Terence Conran has presented the UK winner of the Tivoli Audio design competition with his prize.

Santiago Ortega Haboud, a London-based Ecuadorian design student, came first out of the UK entries and third worldwide.

Like all the entrants, he had to produce designs for a new Model 10 DAB radio to celebrate Tivoli Audio's tenth anniversary. He received $1000 and £500 of Conran vouchers at Sir Terence's Boundary Hotel in London.

Santiago is currently finishing a design engineering post-graduate course at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London.

Sir Terence said: "I have always been a huge supporter of education in design and competitions like this are an excellent way of encouraging students to get involved and use design positively. I love Santiago Haboud's 'Crayon' design – it's charming, clever and full of fun. He's a worthy winner."

More after the break

The global winner of the Tivoli competition was Malaysian student Huan Miao Khoo, whose design will be displayed on a giant billboard in Times Square, New York during December.
