Nobi wins yet another premium design award!
After the Henry van de Velde Gold Award in 2021the prestigious German Design Council now also honors our lamp for its ‘commendably realized design work’ with a ‘winner’ distinction in the category ‘Excellent Product Design’ – Medical, Rehabilitation and Health Care.
The German Design Award, the premium award handed out by the German Design Council, has been identifying significant design trends and introducing them to a broad audience since 2012. Over the years, innovative brands the likes of BMW and Vitra, and forward-thinking authorities such as German fashion designer Jil Sander and British artist Peter Schmidt, have been credited for their impact in the design landscape by means of a distinction handed out by the Council.
This year saw a special edition as the German Design Awards celebrated its tenth anniversary. On this occasion, the presentation of the winners was themed “How Designers Think”. The credits for the design of the Nobi lamp go to David from Antwerp-based Studio Dos Santos, who perfectly translated our esthetic vision for an object that monitors a resident’s wellbeing without being intrusive in their lives. David’s rendition of Nobi convinced an international jury of its outstanding design, which resulted in an award that celebrates groundbreaking innovation.
We are proud to have been acknowledged as a game-changer in the category ‘Excellent Product Design’ – Medical, Rehabilitation and Health Care. We believe our innovatory take on how technology will indeed play a pivotal role in the future of self-care. Our ambitions have always been to make sure we can provide help and support to as many senior citizens and residential care centers as we possibly can worldwide. This award is yet another incentive to take both our drive, ambition and passion to an international level.
