Harman has announced that it has received a record-breaking 16 iF World Design Awards. Add to this three Plus X awards to further confirm Harman’s exceptional capacity for designing audio products that seamlessly combine innovation, quality, and aesthetics. Considered one of the largest and most prestigious design competitions in the world, the iF World Design Awards are a highly respected seal of excellence in aesthetics, quality, and user-focused, ergonomic, and efficient design in all disciplines. This year, Harman was victorious for the designs of 16 products from its Harman Kardon, JBL, and AKG family of brands.
As a testament to Harman Kardon’s dedication to delivering one-of-a-kind design, the brand received six iF awards for products such as the Harman Kardon Allure and Allure portable, the Harman Kardon Invoke and the Harman Kardon Astra voice controlled speakers. Additionally it received awards for two home audio products that will be introduced later this year.
The Harman Kardon Allure was recognised for its elegant, transparent design that blends into any interior and features glowing 360° ambient lighting that emanates from within, reacting to voice commands and echoing the rhythm of Harman Kardon’s uniquely immersive sound.
The Harman Kardon Allure Portable was recognised for its beautiful sound and iconic design featuring premium materials such as a steel speaker grill and a semi-transparent top cover. The Allure Portable combines spectacular sound to fill any room and sophisticated aesthetics to complement any setting.
Harman’s ability to bring uncommon innovative power to the Car Audio industry was also recently recognised with a series of Plus X Awards. The world’s largest innovation awards for technology, sports, and lifestyle, Plus X Awards recognise new and innovative technologies, extraordinary design, and intelligent, easy to use operating systems. SUMMIT Next, VOYAGER Next, and SoundSteer Technology all received multiple awards in the Innovation, High Quality, Ease of Use, and Functionality categories.
