The award-winning young design

Young industrial design students from the University of Art and Design in Northwestern Switzerland were selected to develop the blo:c design concept of bernette's London Line. The goal was to create a sewing machine with a youthful design. Students Mario Rohner and Florian Huber developed the new, young design of the bernette London. The young designers won the Red Dot Design Award in 2012 for the bernette London 8, with its smooth, white surface featuring black accents, a housing-recessed hand wheel and red translucent digital display. This award acknowledges superior design quality that expresses innovation in terms of both form and function. Young design for any age: simple, modern, cosmopolitan, robust. That’s the world of bernette London– blo:c, pure and simple!

Making of

Making of

The project kicked off in October 2008 with conceptualization and brainstorming, followed by detailed development of the ideas generated. The three-month deadline meant that students were working under significant pressure. Initial images were created by the computer with a cutting-edge CAD program – and bernette was born in the virtual world. Next making the model, and finally, the first prototype. Technical options were discussed with bernette product managers from BERNINA – not everything that looks easy in theory is actually so in reality. Technical solutions were discussed on site at the manufacturing plant in Asia, in the presence of the students. The vision was then transformed into reality. That’s how it was created: your world, your bernette. Full of fascination with design.
