LUNAR has won a Gold and two Bronze awards from IDSA for VELA, SF Prep and NOVA!
The Industrial Designers Society of America honored LUNAR this month with a Gold award for VELA, a cycle trainer designed by the team at LUNAR Europe in Munich that challenges the design expression of exercise equipment.
From a functional object, it transforms from workout tool to sculpture, showing off the user’s passion for their lifestyle through outstanding aesthetics. And clever integration of beautiful projections around the bike create an immersive training experience. VELA shifts the paradigm of training at home, making it a celebrated activity.
IDSA also recognized our work on SF Prep and NOVA with Bronze awards.
LUNAR partnered with the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management to understand why so few residents are prepared in any way for an earthquake, and what could be done to empower and motivate them to take action.
The outcome is a simple-to-use, affordable website that uses local San Francisco companies to deliver earthquake preparedness right to residents’ doorsteps through a web-based subscription service. By delivering earthquake preparedness products and learning’s over time, SF Prep gradually engages residents in the process and motivates them to ever-increasing levels of preparedness.
Like VELA, NOVA transforms perceptions of home exercise into a compelling experience. The climbing wall consists of panels with strategic patterns of cut-outs that create visually integrated climbing holds. Light patterns highlight climbing routes as they shine from behind the specific holds for programmed climb. Users control their route selection and receive personalized training through the NOVA Smartphone application.
We’re thrilled to be recognized by our peers in the design world. Congrats to the talented members of the LUNAR team who contributed to these projects!
