Icelandic Design Award - Nomination

Lulla doll was so honorably chosen on the jury’s shortlist for the Icelandic design award in 2016, amongst 3 other companies; As we grow (a children’s fashion label), Or type (a typography design company) and Powering the future (an electrical power exhibition). The Icelandic design award is established by the Iceland design centre in collaboration with the Iceland academy of the arts, the Museum of design and applied art, Landsvirkjun, the Confederation of Icelandic employers and the Federation of Icelandic industries.

According to Icelandic design award’s website “The Icelandic design award honors the best icelandic design and architecture annually. The importance of design in our society, culture and business is growing steadily. It is therefore vital to increase understanding of good design and underline the importance of quality. Celebrating achievement and excellence, the Icelandic design award is given to a designer, a team, a studio or an architect for an outstanding new work, object, project or collection. The award is given to a recent project that demonstrates creative thinking, resourceful solutions, thorough presentation and professional methodology throughout the design process.”

The winner of 2016 was a company situated in the same office building as RoRo, As we grow and in fact 3 of 4 companies on jury’s shortlist are situated in the same building. As we grow is a children’s fashion label, focused on creating timeless, quality clothing. We congratulate our friends and office neighbours on their success and we are happy that the award piece is standing in this building full of creative minds and beautiful design.

The jury had some wonderful things to say about Lulla doll: “Lulla doll is an original and inventive design, supported with scientific research and consultancy by experts. The project is a reminiscent of the importance of invention, collaboration between different fields and the necessity of persistence and the persuasiveness to open the eyes of investors and leading an idea to production”.

Studies have shown that co-sleeping — sleeping in the same room with the parent — is better for an infant. The sounds of the Lulla Doll imitate the sound of a sleeping parent. And since we are often in the other room watching television or talking during the early part of the night, I suspect Kai feels secure with his doll because he doesn't feel alone. We are very careful with Kai's Lulla doll, since he has such affection for her.
