We are thrilled to announce that we have received Slovene Design Award 2023 in the category Design of the Year for our GEM In-Wheel Drive G1.X, redesigned by Studio Miklavc. The recognition was given to as at the Slovene Design Month, organized by BIG SEE.

“The cleverly designed electric motor is designed to power light electric vehicles. The cooling fins illustrate the motion and explain the purpose of the product, at the same time reinforcing the casing, which can be lighter, with better material utilisation, while also cooling the motor, thus extending the life cycle of the product. Combining this kind of functionality with cutting-edge design is definitely the right approach in product development. As the product also has a positive impact on the environment, it is undoubtedly worth to be highlighted and awarded,” explained the jury of the “Month of Design” in their award decision, the jury members being Matjaž Zorc, Jelena Pirkmajer, Maja Tasič Demšar and Mateja Panter.

We couldn’t be prouder to receive recognition in our home country and would like to thank our amazing team of designers at Studio Miklavc: 𝗦𝗶𝗹𝘃𝗮 𝗩𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘇, 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗼 𝗝𝗲𝘇̌𝗲𝗸 & 𝗝𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗠𝗶𝗸𝗹𝗮𝘃𝗰, who worked with us on this project.
