Major confirmation for PF Concept product development, with nine design awards at once
The multi-specialist for promotion products and gifts has continued its series of triumphs this year, winning three of the prestigious Red Dot Awards as well as six iF Design Awards.
…And the winner is… PF Concept! Again in 2015 the European market leader for promotional products and gifts has made a clean sweep. Three of the coveted Red Dot Awards and six iF Design Awards went to PF Concept’s exclusive own brands Marksman, Elevate and Avenue.
Three Red Dot Awards
The famous “red dot” was won by the Marksman Twist Umbrella, the Marksman Pegasus Multifunction Car Emergency Torch and the Elevate Tincup Lightweight Jacket. The festive Red Dot Gala, comprising the official prize giving ceremony, will take place at the Aalto Theatre in Essen on Monday, 29 June 2015.
The Marksman Twist Umbrella is a genuine innovation – the only umbrella of its kind to be opened by simply twisting the rubber-coated handle. And just so you won’t poke somebody in the eye when opening it in a tightly packed crowd, the umbrella spines have rounded ends for extra protection.
The Marksman Pegasus Multifunction Car Emergency Torch impressed two juries at a stroke, also winning an iF Design Award this year. Incorporating three types of lighting and two escape tools, this compact object stylishly delivers safety and practical assistance. Not only can it serve to break windows and cut safety belts, it is also a handy working light and can be set to function as a flashing emergency signal. With its powerful magnets, moreover, it can be mounted directly on the car.
Sports aficionados in particular will go for the ultra-light, top-quality Elevate Tincup Jacket. With ventilation on the back, it regulates bodily temperature in the pleasantest way possible. It is manufactured from 100 percent Nylon Diamond Ripstop with a wax coating, and makes any assault on the heights seem like a well-tempered and fashionably equipped stroll.
The prizewinning products can be inspected up close and personal at the Red Dot Design Museum, the world’s biggest collection of contemporary design.
Six iF Design Awards
Along with the Red Dot Awards, PF Concept is also delighted to have received six of the desirable iF Design Awards. The winning products are the following:
- The Marksman Pegasus Multifunction Car Emergency Torch and the Marksman Exos Car Emergency Tool
Proving that safety doesn’t need to be unsightly, this combined in-car tool incorporates an automated window breaker and a seat belt cutter. The automated window breaker is a spring-loaded device triggered by being pushed against an object, so a car window can be broken without relying on a person’s strength.
- The Marksman Observer Chrono Watch
Delivering impressive quality and style at a price the promotional gift market will welcome, this watch incorporates reliable time and date functions plus two chronograph dials. Highly accurate and water resistant to three ATM, it is styled in the distinctive Marksman design language.
- The Marksman Cobalt Key Chain Knife
This small and lightweight folding knife offers a unique combination of quality, compactness and promotion-friendly design. The innovative Click & Go clip attaches easily and securely to key chains, bags or clothing.
- The Marksman Nano Music Splitter and Mobile Phone Holder
Meeting today’s behavioural trends in smartphone use, this on-the-go-friendly package incorporates a phone stand and audio splitter, which can be clipped to a key chain, bag or clothing via the innovatively secure Click & Go clip.

Elegant hospitality is the order of the day, with this set consisting of two individually designed water carafes with non-drip lids. One carafe is made of high-quality frosted glass, the other clear glass carafe includes a removable water-fillable cooling stick designed to be frozen prior to use.
