It’s time for the weekly update. This week we’ll update you about the current production status, our trip to Germany for the Red Dot Design Awards ceremony and the Computable Awards.
Production and shipping status
Good news: production is going full force this week, which means that the rest of the new batch will be ready for Quality Control shortly. As each and every Sirius A is fully checked, this takes a bit of time, but we’re still on schedule and expect to start shipping by the end of the week.
Red Dot Design Award Ceremony
Back in April we already told you that we’ve won a Red Dot Design Award for the Sirius A. On July 9th, the official ceremony took place, and so our CEO Tim, product engineer Jan-Paul and designer Frank were off to Essen, Germany. It was a fantastic ceremony, and a great honour to be there.
If you happen to be in the neighbourhood of Essen, the Sirius A and all the other Product Design 2018 winners are displayed in a special exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum!
