Technogym’s SKILLMILL wins 2016 Good Design award

Technogym’s SKILLMILL wins 2016 Good Design award
December 23, 2016

Technogym’s new SKILLMILL, launched at the Olympic games in Rio, has been awarded the world’s most prestigious design prize - ‘Good Design’ - the oldest and the most prestigious Awards Program organised worldwide.

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by the former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., together with such pioneers in modern design as Charles and Ray Eames, Russel Wright, George Nelson, and Eero Saarinen, Good Design honours the yearly achievements of the best industrial and graphic designers and world manufacturers for their pursuit of extraordinary design excellence.

The award is recognized as a mark of distinction for the best designers, creators of innovative and visionary products, ideas and solutions that embrace not only aesthetical and functional criteria, but also ecological and environmental aspects.

Launched during the Olympic Games in Rio, where Technogym took part as Official Supplier, SKILLMILL is the first non-motorised product that combines power, speed, stamina and agility training.

SKILLMILL is capable of training all the body’s energy systems in a single solution, from sprinting to power development, for efficient metabolic conditioning and it is fully integrated within mywellness, the Technogym cloud based training platform.

The solution includes a variety of training programs and tools to offer users training guidance, to monitor and track their results. These characteristics are at the core of athletic performance training, a new methodology that helps to create high intensity workouts aimed to improve sports performance, created with the wellness brand’s Olympic heritage at its heart.
