he Recaro Zero.1 Elite is awarded with the German Design Award 2017 in Gold. The Recaro Citylife is the winner in the categories "Baby and Child Care" and "Universal Design".
The German Design Award honours unique design trends every year. The international premium price is awarded by the German Design Council, the most popular brand and design institution in Germany. Thanks to the unique nomination procedure, only those products and communication designs are invited to participate, which are proven to stand out by their design quality.
In the "Baby and Child Care" category, the Recaro Zero.1 Elite is honoured with the highest award for top performance in international design: Gold. This special title is only awarded to the best of the best. According to the judges, the child seat provides safety and comfort for babies, toddlers and parents alike. The ergonomic 360 degree rotation function plays a central role here. The children are well protected, especially in the side. For the parents, this feature offers real added value – when buckling in and interacting with the child. Particularly practical is the removable infant carrier in combination with the adaptor for the stroller. The design of the Zero.1 Elite is based on the trends in the automotive interior segment, demonstrated with intuitive operating elements, functional and coloured fabrics reinforce seat comfort as well as aesthetics.
The light and compact Citylife is the perfect stroller for the active family and has been named winner in the two categories "Baby and Child Care" and "Universal Design". In the high-quality, robust stroller system, babies and toddlers are optimally protected from all sides. In addition to high seating comfort, the intuitive and easy-to-use product offers a series of useful features that make parents happy, too. This is the opinion from the judges.
The panel of judges for the German Design Award 2017 is composed of designers from the fields of business, teaching and science as well as the design industry.
