Presented by Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
South Orange, NJ, August 9, 2010: Zigo, Inc. announced today that its breakthrough product, the Leader, was recently honored with the prestigious Kids Design Award in Japan. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Kids Design Association (a non-profit organization certified by the Cabinet Office) are jointly promoting "kids design", a design concept aimed at promoting children’s safety, security and healthy development and creating a living environment comfortable for families expecting or raising children.
The Kids Design Award is aimed at honoring designs that (1) contribute to children’s safety and security, (2) foster children’s creativity and bright future, and (3) are conducive to child bearing and rearing. In granting the award, the committee appreciated the novelty of the design of the Zigo Leader.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition,” explained Michal Ehrenreich, SOMA Cycle’s CEO. “The Zigo Leader is a global phenomenon, with units being sold in more than 20 countries. We congratulate our distributor in Japan for applying for and winning this award for the Leader. We feel that we really hit it on all three design points of the competition.”
