With his PHILIPPI product LOOP, Peter Kroehl has taken away three of his numerous Design Awards, amongst them, the Red Dot Award. In general, his products find recognition around the globe. This recognition certainly lies on his clear conception of good design: Peter believes a product should be self-explanatory, fulfill all technical requirements and be perceived as a balanced unit with dynamic proportions. In short: great formal aesthetics combined with technical innovation and durability = a Peter Kroehl design.
