Kiwi strollers win big at Red Dot international design awards

The international accolades provide worldwide exposure for the Wellington-based company, which has products stocked in over 1000 stores in 50 countries.

The awards recognise excellence in design and this year were judged by a 38-member panel, including famed shoe designer Jimmy Choo.

The judges evaluated 4,928 entries from 56 countries this year.

Lead designer at Phil&Teds, Phil Brace, says the company designs versatile buggies with iconic style.

“While our buggies have evolved over time, we remain focused on the detail in order to deliver high performance, quality products that put safety first,” he says.

“It’s a thrill for me and the team to be internationally recognised in this way, and humbling to be acknowledged alongside winners like Ferrari, Apple and Dyson.”

The urban jungle buggy is more of a luxury, fashion stroller, while the nano is designed to be convenient for travelling.

Phil&Teds’ Verve is a stroller that can add a back seat to adapt to fit two children.

Campbell Gower, CEO of Phil&Teds, says the company is a just small, Kiwi company, so he’s thrilled it has been recognised internationally.

“This accolade confirms our position as design innovators and is a fantastic addition to the international awards from consumer and industry the team has already received,” Gower says.

The company will be recognised in June later this year at the Red Dot Gala in Essen, Germany.

The award-winning buggies will be put on display in the German Red Dot Museum in an exhibition called “Design on Stage”, then in the museum’s permanent collection.
