“Reaching prestige through innovation, quality, differentiation and technology” is part of Polisport’s corporate vision and IF Design Awards Jury just agreed with that by rewarding the company’s work with two trophies in two different categories: Product Design for Guppy bicycle baby seat and Material Design for Corky bicycle water bottle.
IF Design Award is a reputed competition held by the International Forum Design Hannover. Since 1953, iF has invited international manufacturers and designers to enter their products in the iF design awards. Design experts from all over the world come together in the iF juries to evaluate the entries: excellent design is recognized and rewarded. The iF design awards have long been a trademark feature of iF and the iF label is recognized all over the world as a warranty of design excellence.
The iF Product Design Award is among the most important awards for innovative product design. Those who are successful here receive the iF label: an advertising and communication tool that is internationally recognized. Great news for Guppy which in Polisport own words “is set to mark a new design trend in Polisport baby seats”
The iF Material Design Award was created to underline the importance of a crucial factor in the overall design quality of a product: the choice of material. Corky water bottle deserved this honor from the jury for using a mixture of cork and plastic for its outer shell. More than just being innovative and functional, this technology allows a large reduction in the use of plastic and offers a better thermal performance of the bottle.
