How much comfort is it actually possible to put on the road? How do you provide a person with sufficient freedom, and yet tailor for them a kind of automotive skin? And can you travel in a compact space and still enjoy the comfort of a home from home? All this is possible, and even possible in an outstandingly good design.
“The Flair is the concept of a journey become reality, and we have continued to perfect it right down to the very last detail”, says Thomas Klüber-Voss, Head of the renowned Design-Schmiede Studio SYN, who developed the Flair as commissioned by Niesmann+Bischoff. The result: a true comfort Liner in automotive form, with a sporty line in convex and concave shapes. The international jury of the 2017 German Design Awards 2017 has awarded this outstanding design quality a “Winner” in the Transportation Category.
The German Design Award sets the highest possible standards when determining its prize-winners: in the nomination procedure, only those products which have verifiably differentiated themselves from the competition through their exceptional design quality are invited by the German Design Council to participate in the competition. The jury includes design connoisseurs from the economy, teaching and science as well as the design industry. Those who manage to prevail in this competition against their top-quality rivals has proven themselves amongst the best, say the experts. Reason enough for us to be proud of this award. “This award is a major acknowledgement for the entire Team”, says Managing Director Huber Brandl.
In the year 2015, the Flair and its “little brother” Arto received several awards, honourable mentions and top places. The Arto also received a “Special Mention” at the German Design Award. “After the success with our Arto, the fact that our Flair has now managed to convince the jury so thoroughly – that’s simply wonderful”! says Brandl.
