Tabletop and Home Decoration Brand FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS Receives German Design Award for CEELINGS Lamp Canopies

“We sincerely hope that the pandemic will soon be behind us and that our bowls with masks will remain as reminders of a time when people came together in unity and kept one another safe from infection,” – Marc Eckart.

Award-winning style for light fixtures! German designer brand FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS is proud of receiving the German Design Award 2022 in the category ‘Excellent Product Design – Lighting’ for the CEELINGS line of canopy covers.

The German Design Award is voted upon by the German Design Council, a collection of leading experts in branding and design. The award ranges among the highest honors in international design.

Released in 2020, the CEELINGS collection presents a significant style upgrade for the canopies on top of ceiling lamps. Available in two designs, CEELINGS decorate lamp hangings with three-dimensional ornaments: First, the ‘Handful of Light’ is an oversized hand that dangles a pendant lamp from the ceiling. And second, ‘Happy Hermann’ is a charming character that brings new life and emotions to the home.

“When we first started working on the idea for CEELINGS in 2017, we knew that there was nothing like it on the market. Bringing these unique products to market despite the adversities of the pandemic was a major success, thanks to the hard work of the entire team. And receiving the German Design Award in recognition of this new and unexplored product category is a great honor and the icing on the cake,” said Max Zimmermann, Designer, CEO and Co-Founder at FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS.

Since launch, CEELINGS have come to decorate boutique hotels, designer stores and private homes across the world. The canopies have also proven hot sellers on U.S. ecommerce platforms such as Touch of Modern.

For a chance to witness CEELINGS and the rest of the FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS collection, visit Las Vegas Market tradeshow from January 23-26, 2022 at booth E-1322.

Retailers and B2B partners are also encouraged to obtain the FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS Spring 2022 catalogue available now for download.

The latest product releases from FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS presented in the Spring 2022 catalogue include:

Customers will be delighted by the fourth Medium Bowl Set ‘Winking’ & ‘Laughing’ Face. Made in Germany porcelain bowls in compact size at 6.7 oz capacity. Perfect for serving dips and small snacks in a cute and handy format. The ‘Winking’ Bowl made its debut only recently in early 2021 as a 500ml bowl, inspired by the popular emoji of the same name. In a double package with the ‘Laughing’ Bowl it brings twice the fun to the table.

FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS also launched a brand-new product category: textiles! The line of dish towels from organic cotton is adding style to the kitchen. First in line is the ‘Dish Washing Aid’ design in a retro look from the brand’s Vintage Edition designed in the style ‘since 1958’. Another helpful addition is the Dish Towel ‘Tasty’ featuring the popular TASSEN bowl with the cheeky tongue.

The brand not only brings style to the ceilings, but also to the walls: The new, decorative Tin Sign “Full of Joy” depicts the popular ‘Laughing’ Bowl in a retro look. The sign is part of the newly launched Vintage Edition of products designed according to the motto: What would the company’s products look like, had it been founded in 1958? The answer arrives in a stylish line of items for kitchen and household with a classic, retro look.

The Las Vegas show will also introduce the new Candle Cuddlers from FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS: These are pretty candle holders crafted from porcelain that snugly fit a tea light. Available around March 2022 in two designs, each at a different height: ‘Cuddly’ and ‘Cozy’. Crafted from Made in Germany porcelain, ships in a pretty gift box.

Last but not least, the Drinking Mug with a Bite features the signature ‘bite mark’ known from the porcelain plates. It also packs a bit more volume for delicious drinks: At a capacity of 400ml (13.5 fl oz), Made in Germany according to high standards just like the other mugs in the line.

Please note: The CANDLE CUDDLERS and new MUG WITH A BITE will be available in late February/Early March 2022 in the United States. We’ll be in touch with an availability update following our showcase at Las Vegas Market 2022.

Just in time for the new year, FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS received a product shipment to refresh previous bestsellers and stock up on the latest releases. At the same time, the brand is also looking forward to return to the U.S. tradeshow circuit after a year of Covid-19 related absence.

“Looking ahead, we’re excited to see all of our retailers and partners in the United States again after almost two years of travel restrictions and cancelled events. Come see us in January at the Las Vegas Market January 23 – 26 and find us at booth E-1322 and see our latest release live and talk to us in person. We look forward to seeing you!” said Marc Eckart, CEO and Co-Founder at FIFTYEIGHT PRODUCTS.

More than $50,000 Donated to COVID-19 Relief
Launched at the height of the pandemic in 2020, the HOPEFUL bowl with a 16 oz. capacity wears a protective face mask as a reminder to keep each other safe by wearing PPE. For every HOPEFUL bowl sold, the company is donating 1.00 EUR ($1.15) to relief initiatives. So far, more than $57,000 (about $5,700 per charity) have been donated to programs in the United States and United Kingdom as well as Poland, Austria, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy.

“Thanks to everyone who purchased a HOPEFUL bowl so far and thanks to all the retailers for their support. We sincerely hope that the pandemic will soon be behind us and that our bowls with masks will remain as reminders of a time when people came together in unity and kept one another safe from infection,” said Marc Eckart.
