FELCO receives the Swiss Grand Prix of Design

The Swiss Federal Office of Culture has awarded the Swiss Design Award 2018 to FELCO!

The official ceremony took place in Basel, on June 12, in the presence of the President of the Switzerland, Alain Berset.

FELCO has been rewarded for the visionary nature of its approach to sustainable creation, its commitment to quality in a world where today's planned obsolescence reigns.

Like the Swiss army knife, the "Perfect" chocolate spread or the "Toblerone" chocolate, our iconic FELCO 2, 70 years after its launch, is now a national icon thanks to its ergonomics, precision craftsmanship. and recognized quality.

FELCO is very honored by this recognition and would like to dedicate this award to the memory of Félix Flisch, the company founder and the creator of the iconic FELCO 2, and to all the collaborators whose know-how and professionalism has allowed FELCO - after 73 years of activity - to reach its current position.
