It is with great pride that Arbesko has been nominated for the Design S award for our Stålex rangeDesign S

Design S is the broadest design award in Sweden and all categories are welcome. Every other year the best examples of Swedish design are awarded –  at Svensk Form / Swedish Form – and it catches the particular mood of Swedish design at the time.

Stålex was launched in the spring of 2012, a brand that for years was cast aside. We relaunched the brand by introducing a new generation of Stålex, designed for a new generation of workers. The first range, for which we have now been nominated, consists of four street- and sneaker style safety shoes: Hot Pink, Carmine Red, Pale Blue and Ghost White.

Out of 220 entries, 35 have been nominated. The award gives recognition to both the designer and the client. The winners will be presented at a ceremony held at “Fotografiska” in Stockholm on November 21st. The Swedish minister of trade will the present the prize in conjunction with the annual Design Day, filled with workshops and lectures on design.
