100 awards for design
Even more remarkable than the five most recent awards is the list of awards where the honors are placed. The curious goal 100 design awards Markus Storck set out to win in 1997 when he received the Red Dot Best of the Best award, the first and one of the most important recognitions. Markus Storck, who already managed his own company at the age of 30 and really wanted to study design, founded the company STORCK Bicycle and fulfilled his dream by continuing to live out his passion for design in addition to producing excellent products.
This gave rise to the idea of achieving 100 design awards during his lifetime. Several other Red Dot Winner awards followed, as well as two more Red Dot Best of the Best Awards. Highlights were also the famous awards German Design, German Brand and iF. With the realization of this goal, Markus Storck can count himself among the most successful product designers. Some of the award-winning exhibits are still in museums, including in London and New York.
“For the STORCK brand and for me personally, it is of great importance to receive the many awards in the most prestigious design competitions in the world. The diversity of the award-winning products shows our timeless design quality over many years. Now it’s time for the next 100 “say Markus Stork.
