Volvo wins international product design award
Volvo Construction Equipment is celebrating after its A40F articulated hauler received another prestigious accolade for innovative product design – the coveted iF product design award.
The A40F articulated hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is taking the industry by storm. The machine has picked up yet another award – this time in the esteemed iF product design awards. The A40F beat thousands of international products and wowed a panel of design experts to win the internationally recognized quality label – and there might still be more success to come. At the awards ceremony in February, the jury will honor the very best designs with an iF gold award. Earlier this year, the A40F won another one of the world's most sought-after seals of design quality – the 'red dot: best of the best' product design award.
The iF product design awards have been honoring outstanding design for 60 years. Only the very best innovative works, from 16 categories, managed to convince the jury – and this year more than 3,000 products were entered by designers and companies worldwide. The jury thoroughly examined each entry – the evaluation criteria included design quality, degree of innovation, environmental impact and functionality. Volvo CE's A40F was awarded the prestigious prize in category 15: special vehicles, construction and agriculture.
Around 2, 000 guests from the world of international design, media, business and politics are expected to celebrate the iF award winners on February 22nd in Munich, Germany. Together with the other prize-winning products, the Volvo A40F articulated hauler will then be presented as part of the iF design exhibitions in Hannover and Hamburg as well as in the iF product design online exhibition.
