Stäfa, Switzerland (February 6, 2011) –
Phonak hearing aids Ambra microM, Ambra P, Ambra SP, as well as the PilotOne remote control and the Phonak TV Link Wireless hearing system, have been awarded with the GOOD DESIGN® Award 2010. The jury of distinguished architects and curators selected 500 product designs and graphics from over 36 countries out of a record number of entries. According to the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, the awarded Phonak products “revived awareness about contemporary design [and] have chartered new directions and pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace.”

These awards are symbolic for Phonak’s ambition to establish itself as an innovation and technology leader, without neglecting the importance of design and esthetics.
