INFORS HT wins iF gold award for Minifors 2

INFORS HT has been recognised with an award presented by the prestigious iF International Forum / The Minifors 2 bioreactor impressed the jury and was one of only a few candidates to receive the iF gold award in the discipline "product"

(PresseBox) (Bottmingen, ) Each year, Germany’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, bestows the iF DESIGN AWARD. It is one of the most important design prizes in the world and awards design achievements in the following disciplines Product, Packaging, Communication and Service Design, Architecture and Interior Architecture, as well as Professional Concepts. This year only 75 products of 5575 submissions from 59 countries have been chosen for the iF gold award.

The compact and easy-to-use bioreactor has impressed the independent 58-member expert jury. The complete package enables both beginners and experienced users to perform a full range of possible applications.

From the jury’s point of view, the user-centred design concept is spot on. “The designers have observed the use of this product in laboratories and refined it as a result of these findings. From a styling point of view, the product communicates quality and trust, from the material choice and finish to a clear user interface design on the large display screen.“. This critique forms the basis of the juries justification for the gold award.

„With Minifors 2 we wanted to set new standards both in design and handling, placing the user in the centre of product development“, says Michael Hawrylenko, CEO of Infors AG. „We are delighted about the iF gold award, which honours our concept.“

Minifors 2 has been developed by INFORS HT and designer Stefan Sperling from Meyer-Hayoz Design Engineering. Exceptional thanks goes to Mr. Sperling and the design team for their cooperation during the project.
