Figgjo has been awarded the Red Dot Design Award for the Figgjo Oslo coffee series, which was developed in collaboration with world-famous barista Tim Wendelboe and designed by Kristin H. Ihlen.
“Figgjo Oslo and the coffee cups we have developed will completely change the coffee experience. By creating three different cups we highlight and strengthen each individual coffee and its characteristic flavour,” said Wendelboe when Figgjo Oslo was launched in the autumn of 2015. He wants to give people unique taste experiences when they drink coffee.
“The aim of Figgjo Oslo was to understand coffee trends and to satisfy the taste requirements of the most demanding baristas and their customers. We thought that Figgjo Oslo should do for coffee what a good glass does for wine. With Figgjo Oslo we achieved exactly this, in an attractive and elegant way that we are now being rewarded for,” says Simmer Vikeså, CEO of Figgjo.
“The award is of great significance, and confirms that Figgjo has taken a step forward as a design company. The award strengthens Figgjo’s position as a leading trendsetter, as well as our ability to bring new, challenging products to the market,” says Anne Linn Olsen, Marketing Coordinator at Figgjo.
Figgjo has received the Red Dot Design Award several times (for Figgjo Form and Figgjo Planet 40). The award is one of the world’s most highly-respected and prestigious international design awards. The jury, comprised of independent designers, assessed a total of 5,200 nominated products this year.
“The winners’ products exhibit extraordinary design quality, in addition to integrating design with innovative solutions,” says Professor Peter Zec, Founder and President of the Red Dot Award.
