It was a proud designer and a happy CEO who Friday 13th February 2015 headed for Frankfurt.
Bell+ has won a German Design Award 2015 Special Mention in the category Excellent Product Design and Friday 13th February was the day of the ceremony and award presentations. The ceremony was held at Frankfurt Exhibition Grounds in great surroundings. Thomas Holst Madsen and Thomas Darø were the proud representatives of Darø a/s and they were very happy with the ceremony, the red carpet and the event in general.
The goal of the German Design Award is to discover, present and award prizes for exceptional design trends. The Special Mention Award is given to a product that has been particularly noteworthy. The German Design Council elaborates:
Due to the high quality among the number of participants, the German Design Council will award the distinction Special Mention. This award honours achievements whose design exhibited particularly noteworthy aspects or solutions – a distinction that acknowledges the commitment of both companies and designers.
We are very happy with the international success Bell+ is having. It is a great feeling to be awarded not just one, but two design awards by two different design councils. It goes to show that Thomas Holst Madsen’s design of Bell+ has been so thorough and well thought out that is cannot be overlooked. We are very proud of that.
