Cruso founders Olivier Stévenart and Lionel Slusny went to Frankfurt to receive Cruso's first design award. It is the accomplishment of a challenging product development with the design studio BIG GAME.
BIG GAME's design style always is characterized by a certain playfulness. The jury was sensible to this product and the philosophy that started Cruso. They awarded BLOCK in the category "Excellent furniture design", here is the jury statements :
"Who doesn't remember the first shelves they made themselves, a simple construction of bricks and boards that fulfilled its pragmatic purpose. BLOCK shelves translate this modest construction into a high-quality design, in which bricks are replaced by steel modules, thus expanding the storage space. A beautiful, nostalgic idea with timeless elegance."
