The team of design experts at Red Dot crowns the iCandy MiChair with the ‘Product Design 2016’ award.
Receiving various accolades in the nursery industry, the pioneering iCandy range has now also proven its worth to the Red Dot jury. Red Dot looks for the best achievements in international product design, “in the search for excellence” Red Dot presented us with the Product Design 2016 award.
According to Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot based in Essen, Germany: iCandy “succeeded against ambitious competitors” with thousands of entries, “the Red Dot Award: Product Design received the highest-ever number of entries” for the Red Dot quality seal. The 40 international experts tested, assessed, criticised and discussed. “Due to the consistently high quality of the entries, it was not easy to make their decision. Only the best products were bestowed with the sought-after award for design excellence.” iCandy was one such manufacturer. For the iCandy brand, the recipe for innovation is British craftsmanship and no limits, such results are seen and felt in effortless performance throughout the iCandy range.
The look of Luxury, Modernity and Style
The iCandy MiChair is a stylish beautifully crafted piece of furniture for your child. A timeless piece of furniture, the highchair is suitable from birth when used with the iCandy Pod. The iCandy Pod simply docks on to the highchair to bring baby up and away from the ground, to parent height when feeding. The pod features a contemporary design and provides a comfortable and relaxing environment. With a detachable toy bar, the pod allows you to attach your child’s favourite toy, encouraging interaction between you and baby. The iCandy Pod folds flat for easy storage and comes with removable, machine washable liners for added comfort. Parent and baby are able to experience all important eye-to-eye contact, so critical in the first formative months. The iCandy MiChair offers the perfect balance of natural materials adding warmth with the practicality of the highest grade plastics. The chair back and rocking chair skis are crafted with sustainably sourced Beech and Birch FSC plywood. The legs add synergy with the iCandy pushchair range by utilising the brand’s exclusive signature high shine chrome finish. With modern family life in mind, the tray is simple but clever with hidden integral release paddles that are intuitive to use, making removal and handling easy. The design of the iCandy MiChair ensures dirt has no place to get trapped on any surface making it easy to keep clean. The hygienic tray is also dishwasher safe making cleaning effortless. As the child develops, the iCandy MiChair converts into a stylish child’s chair or rocking chair, giving your child their very own special piece of furniture, creating the feeling of ownership. Both the chair and rocking chair can be used up to the age of six.
Martin Boyle, Managing Director of iCandy said “Congratulations to the iCandy team! iCandy are renowned for their superior design quality and such successes underline our position as one of the leading international luxury pushchair brands.
