Four awards won!

We are in a 'winning mood'! During the vibrant Dutch Design Week, the Netherlands is dedicated to Design. And for us there was a silver lining! Because last week 4 Spark products won awards: Three of our products won a Good Industrial Design (GIO) award and, the icing on the cake, last weekend we also received a presitigious Dutch Design Award (DDA).

Rescue Tip-Board wins prestigious Dutch Design Award

On Saturday 18 October the Rescue Tip-Board won a Dutch Design Award. We received the award, together with Jack Ruibing – project director of Safety Region Haaglanden, during the awards ceremony. The jury was not only enthusiastic about the product but also about the process: “…the involvement of all the stakeholders, which resulted in a special partnership rather than a cliet/contractor relationship.”



Recognition for Good Industrial Design

In addition to the Dutch Design Award three of our products also received a Good Industrial Design award. The Holmatro Spider Range is an iconic product line of hydraulic pumps used to power rescue tools. The PowerBar is a very small and elegant plug socket with space for two USB cables. In addition, Auping also received recognition for the design of the Original, a project in which we collaborated on the styling and detailing of a complete bed with a distinct design.

We are hugely proud of this achievement, recognition for our breakthrough innovation.
