»burggrafburggraf« receives GERMAN DESIGN AWARD GOLD 2020 for backpack Como

The German Design Awards are the international premier prize awarded by the German Design Council. Its goal: to discover, present, and honour unique trends in design. Every year, high-calibre entries in the fields of product and communication design are honoured, each of which blazes new trails in the international design landscape. The jury selects one Gold award winner in each category. The »Gold« award honours outstanding achievements in international design and is given only to the best of the best.

Statement of the Jury:

“The idea of making a backpack out of vegan cork bark rather than animal leather initially aroused the jury’s curiosity and, after closer examination, easily impressed it. Not only does the leather-like material feel warm and supple, it also looks very special and, together with the elegant, clear cut and the striking pleat, lends the backpack a touch of extravagance. The support, which is moved to the front, is a clever solution that provides plenty of arm room, makes carrying more comfortable overall and also contributes to closing the bag even more securely. A great, cleverly thought-out accessory that impressively demonstrates the potential of plant-based materials as a sustainable alternative to animal leather.”
