Design Prize Switzerland, 2017/18 Edition

06 November 2017

The Swiss medtech startup SteriLux has been named the winner of the Rado Star Prize Switzerland for Young Talents. The international jury of Design Prize Switzerland was won over by the young company's product, which sterilizes medical instruments in an innovative way.  The young company developed an affordable new type of sterilization method that can be carried out even without reliable access to electricity or clean water. The SteriLux system, which makes use of UV light and ozone, was developed jointly by scientists and designers – a truly award-winning achievement.

SteriLux CEO Marc Spaltenstein and designer Jordane Vernet were honoured at the award ceremony with prize money and the limited edition Rado True Phospho, which was co-developed by Rado and Swiss design collective Big-Game.

"This is an innovative product with worldwide potential that combines new technologies with great design. The idea of making the previously impossible possible is a perfect reflection of Rado's pioneer spirit. We congratulate Marc Spaltenstein and his team on their impressive victory in this year's Rado Star Prize Switzerland for Young Talents," comments Matthias Breshan, CEO of Rado.
