Top Prize at the 2009 Spark Awards

The team at manuelsaez ltd was recognized with three Spark Awards in 2009. The CMYK Elektric Bike was the most voted design taking the top prize while the Huni Chair and the Alta Chair received a Gold and a Bronze Award respectively. According to Peter Kuchnicki, the president of the Spark Design Awards, “the judges were very demanding and they had very high expectations of the designs”—making it a high honor for CMYK to be selected as a top entry among highly qualified works from firms such as IDEO, Continuum, SOM, and Smart Design. The award ceremony was held at Autodesk headquarters in San Francisco, California, on October 29.
