2020 GREEN GOOD DESIGN

Sustainability award for the Rado True Thinline Leaf

Rarely have the award and the prize winner been better suited to each other: our emerald green Rado True Thinline Leaf was presented with the prestigious GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Under the motto “Build a better world now”, the coveted award honours outstanding architecture and product designs that leave a lasting impression with their “green” concept.

The Green Good Design Award 2020 went to our True Thinline Leaf. Made from hightech ceramic, this timepiece features a green iridescent mother-of-pearl dial with a delicate leaf structure embossed on the underside. As a result of the creative partnership with Grandi Giardini Italiani, an organisation dedicated to preserving extraordinary Italian gardens, this line celebrates the interplay of design and nature.

The creation of each individual watch is just as unique as its dial. Years of research culminated in the True Thinline’s ground breaking monobloc ceramic case – a neverbefore-seen type of case construction featuring solid ceramic with no need for a stainless steel core. This not only gave the True Thinline its extreme lightness and super slim silhouette, but it also paved the way for new design possibilities.

This year’s edition of the GREEN GOOD DESIGN AWARD focused on the world’s most important new products, buildings, construction and planning projects, whose sustainable and environmentally friendly design is pioneering. We are therefore particularly pleased that our vision of a “natural” timepiece has been appreciated by such a prestigious organisation.

ErgoErgo

It’s almost summertime and you know what that means! Everyone wants to turn their mom/dad bods into beach bods. Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is that by the time summer comes, most people will give up on slimming down for their dream bikini or for those Instagram selfies. We’ve all been there. We’ve all said we’re going to shed a few pounds and then quit on our journey. I’d love to offer an option that can be incorporated into your everyday routine so that you can lead a healthier lifestyle.

ErgoErgo is an extraordinary seating concept combining the benefits of active sitting with a bold contemporary design. ErgoErgo encourages us to sit as nature intended. Rock gently in any direction to build strength & flexibility. ErgoErgo encourages us to sit as nature intended – your body feels a new ease and freedom. The core muscles are engaged, the spine achieves its natural curve, the pelvis gently moves, circulation improves and the legs stretch.

With its durable quality, timeless design, and fun colors, you can sit joyfully for years to come and enjoy a stool that also doubles as a piece of art! I’d love to work on a story that will offer your audience a new year’s resolution that is fun, and easy to keep!

ErgoErgo: Perfect for working and relaxing. Use it in offices, schools, libraries, dorms, hotels, healthcare facilities…the possibilities are endless. ErgoErgo is great public seating. And it’s compact enough for the smallest space. ErgoErgo compresses slightly when you sit on it to the height of a standard chair, which makes it perfect for a standard desk height.

ExtraErgo: ExtraErgo offers all the benefits of ErgoErgo. Your body is free to move, your core is engaged. With its larger seat, Extra Ergo provides more comfort for taller, larger people, and more stability for every body.

KidsErgo: The revolutionary KidsErgo is the safe and healthy way to sit. Children are happier and learn better when they can sit actively. Teachers report that students sitting on KidsErgo often improve significantly in posture, concentration, participation, and behavior. Children love KidsErgo’s friendly shape and its rainbow of bright colors.

It is so much more than a stool: Winner of the Academic Choice Mindspring, The Good Design, The Edison And Parents’ Pick Awards, ErgoErgo recognized that our bodies were made to move! Active sitting wakes up your body. Relax and enjoy the freedom from traditional static sitting. Engage your core muscles, keep your spine supple, improve your circulation, and ease your breathing. After sitting on ErgoErgo, ordinary chairs seem…well, just ordinary.
