We’re so excited here at Kobo HQ to receive the French Institute of Design’s (IFD) “Le Janus de l’Industrie” award for excellence in design. A panel of judges comprised of a graphic and product designers, advertisers and marketers, design teachers and merchandising experts, chose the Kobo Touch from a tough field of competitors.

Based on strict criteria that includes aesthetics choices, ergonomic features, economic and environmental considerations and finally, emotional appeal, the Touch came out on top with flying colours!

The IFD’s new seal of approval looks great next to our Kobo Vox eReaders’ Parent Tested Parent Approved award—and we just love putting the words “award winning” next to our line-up of great eReader devices!
