And the Oscar goes to… Ergobaby Metro Compact City Stroller.
Hip, hip, hooray!!! A round of applause! What fantastic news, which undoubtedly warrants popping the cork on yet another bottle of champagne. Technically speaking, this award isn’t an Oscar, but the iF Design Award is a world-renowned design label and is no less valuable to designers. And our chic little Metro run-around bagged the prize in the “Product” category. Wooohooo!
Once a year, the iF International Design GmbH presents awards in the following disciplines: Product, Packaging, Communication & Service Design/UX, Architecture & Interior Architecture as well as Professional Concept. It is the oldest independent design institution in the world, and “iF International” has long been established as the trademark for outstanding design services.
This year, the 67-strong jury of experts had the task of picking out the best from 6,375 submissions from 52 countries. What a mission! But our ultra-compact lightweight number simply stood out with its superb design concept and impressed them all.
Now it doesn’t just have the iF seal of approval, but even a spot on the iF “Hall of Fame”, and is consequently listed in the iF World Design Guide. What’s more, the award-winning Metro was showcased at the iF Design Exhibition Hamburg. What a privilege for our Ergobaby Stroller!
Speaking of which, this will be official from 15 March 2019. For that is the date of the award ceremony in Munich, and we wouldn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to show up in person and accept the award. How exciting! We will certainly be reporting on this fantastic event, so stay tuned. But for now, let’s raise a glass! 🥂 Cheers!
