iF product design awardaward-aurus

In 2006, AURUS received the Golden iF Statuette for outstanding design in the consumer electronics / telecommunications category. The CANTUS also received this coveted award in 1997. Product design for both CANTUS and AURUS was developed by Arno Schünemann from Schünemann DesignSolutions in Berlin.

Assessment criteria for the award included; design quality, workmanship, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental friendliness, functionality, ergonomics and visualisation of use, safety, brand value and branding.

The international jury of 20 renowned design experts evaluated nearly 2 000 products from 37 countries in a number of different categories. The iF product design award is presented annually by iF Industrie Forum Design in Hannover. Since its inauguration in 1954, this has become one of the most prestigious international design competitions.
