Oura among the winners of Helsinki Design Awards
Helsinki Design Awards once again rewarded Finnish designers as well as companies and organizations investing in design. Oura-ring was selected as the winner in the Product of the Year category.
The jury much appreciated tested, functional and aesthetically appealing design of the Oura solution that was described as distinctive in the health-wellness landscape.
‘It’s been an interesting and inspiring starting point to figure out how to combine intriguing, decorative design with technology so that the end-result doesn’t look like tech or electronics but more like a piece of jewellery. It creates a challenge, but it’s extremely fascinating,’ commented Jari Kivelä, CTO, Co-Founder and Head of Design at Oura.
The awards gala took place at Clarion Hotel Helsinki in Jätkäsaari on Wednesday 12 September. Prizes were given in five different categories: Young Talent of the Year, Product of the Year, Lifetime, Internationalization, and Jury’s Choice.
