iF Wish List: Favorite awarded design from the headquarter
What is underneath the Christmas tree? This question is the
top priority in many households around Christmas! We at iF dived deep in our
design excellence and each colleague from the headquarter found one awarded
product, that never left their minds and want to share them with you. Scroll
through our personal iF Christmas selection!
„If someone asks me, what the most beautiful iF awarded products were, I immediately know the answer: I love these wonderful storage and jewelry boxes by Ittala, especially the ones with wood tops – although they were awarded six years ago!"
"When I was a teenager I had one favorite car: The MINI Clubman! The new edition of the original design by BMW is a success. A stylish and roomy compact car. You can find a parking slot everywhere – and what is best: our dogs can find a place on the small platform!"
"I think the lamp is so great because it's 2-in-1: lamp and wireless charger in one. It is relatively space-saving and does not cause cable clutter on the table. It also has a very simple and straightforward design, which makes it timeless."
"An IoT refrigerator! At work, I wrote about it several times, but never really 'experienced' it. The refrigerator has different zones with a creative functionality: For example, the 'knock on' function, which allows the user to check the contents without opening the door! I would really like to test the fridge for daily use!"
Hilti TE 6-A36
designed by Matuschek Design & Management, Germany
"I like the simple design of the Mito lamp very much. Through its “break” or cut it looks so light and floats in the room. I can imagine it above our dinner table perfectly: simple, clean and with a timeless beauty."
designed by Thomas Höhnel, Berlinerblau, Germany + Simon Husslein, Studio Hannes Wettstein AG, Switzerland
"The perfect Christmas gift would be the Impulse thermal mug from WMF. With its shapely contours it just feels perfect in your hand and impresses by the elegant design. As a plus, reusable mugs are better for the environment!"
Form TAC 1, weiß
designed by Prof. Gropius, Germany + L. McMillen, Germany
"As the Bauhaus centenary is knocking on the door, I could get in the mood with a cup of tea from Rosenthal’s TAC tea pot, designed by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius. iF honored the design in 1970 and you can still buy it until today!"
