Under the leadership of Mercedes-Benz design director professor Gorden Wagener, the company’s design team “caught” the “Team of the year” trophy, which was awarded by the German Design Council in the Automotive Brand Contest.
The Stuttgart-based car manufacturer impressed the jury with the CLS model, which got the ultimate “Best of the Best” award for its exterior design, while the interior design award went to the A-Class Concept.
“We are all delighted to receive this valuable award in recognition of a magnificent joint effort. Everyone in our team works with great dedication day-in, day-out, to ensure that the Mercedes-Benz models of the future retain their distinctive, hallmark, Mercedes character in keeping with the very highest aesthetic standards”, said Gorden Wagener.
The “Team of the year” and “Best of the Best” awards will be presented at the Frankfurt Auto Show on the 13th of September, during the Automotive Designers Night.
