From New York’s MoMa to the Neue Sammlung in Munich – we have fans everywhere
You could be excused for thinking that Victorinox never intended to be on the receiving end of so many accolades. Because back in 1884, it’s likely nobody even thought about the idea of design, or was even familiar with the word. The objective was to integrate as many functions as possible into the smallest area possible. Karl Elsener and his team tinkered and fiddled until they had devised the best possible solution. This solution has withstood the test of time, illustrating how smart products, i.e. good design, have a timeless quality.
Discover which institutions have recognized the timeless quality of our iconic design. We take a bow and express our thanks for these accolades.
