Kellermann Jetstream Wins Good Design Award
Kellermann's Jetstream sequential running light has won a prestigious Good Design Award from the Athenaeum Museum of Chicago. The Aachen, Germany based accessory manufacturer was awarded in the 'Transportation' category.
The annual global competition evaluates product design, communication design, packaging design and concept designs by the world's leading brands to showcase current trends emerging in the international design and manufacturing sectors. For 2022, the museum received a record number of more than 4,000 submissions from over 52 countries from the world's most prestigious design offices and leading visionary manufacturers.
The Kellermann Jetstream was developed as a sequential lighting turn signal and as a 3-in-1 version with a combination of rear, brake and sequential lighting turn signals. The design of the Kellermann Jetstream integrates elements from 1930s aviation construction and is designed in the shape of a wing with an integrated jet engine.
The shape is extremely aerodynamic and therefore very streamlined at high speeds - and very powerful. "The unbelievable illuminating power of the Kellermann Jetstream contributes towards more safety on the road because the motorcycle is better and earlier visible when approaching at high speed. The strong illuminating power also raises the safety buffer during turning or braking maneuvers as other road users are clearly warned about turn maneuvers with the sequential lighting turn signal at the front and rear, and at the rear with the 3-in-1 combination during turning and braking maneuvers.
This is the second time the jury of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design (www.chi-athenaeum.org) has honored a Kellermann product in the transportation segment with the Good Design Award. The BL 2000 handlebar end turn signal already won the award in 2015 and found its place in the permanent exhibition of the Chicago Athenaeum. The Jetstream running light turn signal now joins it in being recognized for design excellence.
