Gold at German Design Award
Phoenix Design is honoured to receive five German Design Awards this year, one of it in gold! The coveted awards will be handed over on Friday, 10 February 2017, at the “Ambiente” trade fair in Frankfurt/Main. An exhibition on the trade fair grounds will showcase all winners.
The Gold award goes to the Kobold VK200 upright vacuum cleaner equipped with the EB400 automatic electric brush, developed in close cooperation with the Vorwerk design department. “The typical Vorwerk DNA in terms of shape and colour in a modern and contemporary design interpretation”, according to the jurors. In January, this vacuum cleaner already received the ICONIC AWARD: best of the best.
One winner’s award each goes to the Kobold VK200 equipped with the SP530 wet cleaning vacuum head as an “elegant, top-modern technology item”, and to SUMMERA by Phoenix Design. This suspended luminaire sums up European design culture – playfully light in its clear forms, serene colours, and uncomplicated functions. The panel of jurors particularly appreciated the easy-to-handle mechanism for changing the magnetic canopy.
One “Special Mention” award each goes to products by hansgrohe: the Rainmaker Select 460 1jet with Shower Tablet 700 Installation, and the Shower Select Glass series with its innovative touch technology. The elegant, comfortable design and the use of high-quality materials are the reasons for this jury decision.
We are very happy, together with our clients hansgrohe, Vorwerk and Shapes.
