Evaluation of the submissions lies in the hands of an expert jury, which is comprised of recognized representatives from the fields of business, research and education, as well as the design industry.  The expert jury will evaluate entries based on various criteria such as degree of innovation, design quality, functionality, ergonomics and durability.

Andrej Kupetz, General Manager of German design Council is extremely pleased with the entire jury: „We are proud, once again, to have recruited such a highly distinguished team of design experts to act as the jury for the 2014 German Design Award. This is further affirmation of the relevance of this award for the business and science sectors, as well as the design-interested public. We look forward to the jury conference and eagerly await the outcome of this year’s competition.“

Karro Wheelbarrow – Design innovation custom-made

Already honored with the Red Dot Design Award 2013 and the Materialica Gold Award 2012, the Karro wheelbarrow is now nominated for the German Design Award 2014.

The Karro barrow is not only convincing with its high stability and durability but with its 8,5 kg it is also the lightest on the market. The particular low mounted center of gravity, the ergonomic handle and the function-related roll motion are decisive for the extremely easy and effort-saving transport.

Additional features like food conformity, good chemical resistance, rust resistance and 100% recyclable material makes it unique. At first designed with a load of < 150kg, further pans are now in planning to match the various fields of applications. „Quality re-defined!“ this is achieved by know-how and innovative production processes by using Water Injection Technology and melt push back procedure for the cavity formation of the tube frame.

Developed for gardening supplies, leisure/hobby, food industry, construction industry and agribusiness – best choice everywhere!

Market launch for the Karro barrow is planned for autumn 2013. Sales and distribution is carried out exclusively via Fluidform GmbH, Rudolf-Hell-Str. 12, 77955 Ettenheim, Germany. Further information is available over vertrieb@fluidform.de.
