Does Barco care about the design of its products? We most certainly do. Just think about the sleek, stylish design of our latest AV projector range or the design of our OBLX freestanding system. Much to our delight we’ve now heard that our design efforts are appreciated by the experts too. The renowned German Design Council just nominated four Barco products for a Design Award in the ‘Excellent Product Design’ category. In addition, our 2013 annual report was nominated in the ‘Excellent Communication Design’ category.
In their fourth year now, the prestigious, much-coveted ‘German Design Awards’ recognize top-quality products and projects that stand out from the crowd on account of their design quality. An expert jury, including representatives from the industrial sector, the academic world and the design industry, selects the winners in ten different categories. In addition, design enthusiasts can cast their vote for ‘the Public’s Choice’.
The potential Barco winners include: the Nio Color 2MP LED medical displays (‘Industry, Materials and Healthcare’), our OBLX-55 freestanding structure (‘Office’), the ISIS (MDP-471/4) display and our PHXG-91B projector (‘Computer and Entertainment’), not forgetting the 2013 annual report.
The Awards will be announced during ‘Ambiente 2015’ in Frankfurt. We’ll definitely keep you posted!
