On October 12, 2018, our chief designer Heiko Hillig received the 2018 Focus Gold at the International Design Awards in Baden Würtemberg. The baby toy Sola won in the category “Kids and Family”. The jury found that the grabbing toy – small and delicate – has a sensory stimulating effect through its texture, shape, color and acoustics and that it is in general a child-friendly, well-thought-out toy. We are extremely pleased about this award and wish the little ones and their parents many stimulating moments with Sola.
Golden times for USM and Naef, as both receive the Focus Gold for their products, the highest award for outstanding and forward-looking design. Currently the two companies are being showcased in the USM showroom in Stuttgart. (see October article)
