Wiegen Stroller

Wiegen puts a first-time parent’s attention where it should be: on the child. Parents are able to safely and stylishly interact face-to-face with their children as they take them out into the world. The stroller can be easily adjusted as the child grows and wants to sit upright. It is also easy to collapse and store.

Interactive Shoes

The Interactive Footwear Project comprises low heel ladies’ leather shoes in two different models: a casual model with a wide toe and a classic model with a narrow toe. Also included is a set of accessories that allows consumers to customize their shoes and combine different pairs. The main challenges posed by the project were to meet the different measurement and taste requirements as well as to satisfy the ongoing quest for renewal of the models and accessories. Another challenge? The use of Brazilian handicraft materials on industrial scale.

Vapor 300 running watch

The Vapor 300 is a running watch designed for core and competitive runners, who require a watch that can record splits, laps and intervals. These runners train four to six times a week, often run in locally organized groups and usually have a leader or a coach. They follow national and global runners for guidance and advice and are involved in competitions and events. The Vapor 300 tracks and stores data about their runs, helping them train more accurately and efficiently. It also has sufficient memory to store their data for future reference.

SENZ XL storm umbrella

The SENZ XL storm umbrella is the first aerodynamic golf umbrella. Due to its asymmetric design, the SENZ XL storm umbrella automatically finds the best position in the wind, making it comfortable and easy to use, even in strong gusts. The patented construction makes the umbrella windproof up to 70 MPH. Additionally, the umbrella will not invert. The specially shaped ‘eye savers’ provides protection to dangerous tips and the aerodynamic shape of the umbrella gives the user an excellent view. The opening mechanism has been integrated into the handle, while the smooth oval shaft matches seamlessly with the umbrella´s aerodynamic design.

920 Amphibious Shoe

The 920 is an amphibious shoe with a unique liquid and debris drainage system. Simple holes in the side of the shoe do not allow additional material to enter into the shoe, yet still allow easy exit of both water and debris. Stubborn debris is easily cleared via a “flushing” action created when submerging the footwear even without removal of the foot. The design is intended for the outdoor enthusiast involved in a range of activities, including wet-condition running, adventure racing, canyoneering, kayaking, rafting, canoeing, sailing, fishing or just enjoying a day near the water.
