Focus Special Mention - prize

MOVE receives prize from the Design Centre Baden-Württemberg

Blickle's synthetic twin castor MOVE was presented with yet another award in Ludwigsburg, Germany, on 26 September 2014. Following the red dot award, Blickle has now won another prize – the international Design Prize Baden Württemberg, also referred to as the Focus Open.

MOVE was presented with a “Focus Special Mention” in the category “Medical equipment”. From a total of 230 submissions, only 31 products received the “Focus Special Mention”. In addition, 13 products received the “Focus Gold” and 35 received the “Focus Silver” award. What is special about the Focus Open is that it's a national prize awarded by the Ministry of Finance and Economy. Starting now, the prize-winning competing products can be viewed in the Museum Information Kunst (MIK) in Ludwigsburg. The exhibition will showcase the winners of this year's Focus Open until 9 November, 2014.

The synthetic twin castor was developed in collaboration with a well-known design firm in Pforzheim. Thanks to its smooth surface, MOVE is easy to clean and complies with all hygiene requirements of the medical industry. The castor is characterised by its small pivoting radius and compact height. MOVE is available in two sizes, with wheel diameters of 125 mm and 150 mm and is also available in a large range of colours and fitting variations.
