We are delighted to share that Thinkable Studio and Gardin have been selected for the prestigious German ‘Focus Open 2024 Baden-Württemberg International Design Award’ for Gardin’s revolutionary phenotyping platform.

Thinkable and Gardin received an honourable special mention for the design of one of the world’s most advanced agricultural technologies that helps to improve food crops, reduce resource usage and improves forecasting.

“This is one of those rewarding projects where you can see the impact of technology helping to heal and feed the planet! We are in the midst of an agricultural revolution and Gardin is leading the way in sensor technology for greenhouses, vertical farms and polytunnels.

In a wonderful partnership we designed and developed the Gardin sensor from concept into production between inhouse team and our friends at Gardin in a record 10-months.

We could not be more proud to be working again with Sumanta Talukdar and his talented team” Jorg Schlieffers, Managing Director, Thinkable Studio.

Andrew Hunter-Osborne, Director of Supply Chain & Operations says, “The success of Gardin to date has been built on very solid relationships with our both our strategic partners & customers alike.  The collaboration with the Thinkable team enabled us to realise concept to production against an aggressive schedule delivering our hardware to customers worldwide.  Thinkable not only designed a functional, stylish and robust product, but supported our wider manufacturing partners in ensuring a successful first build along with swift product certification. I look forward to working with Thinkable again in generating compelling hardware.”

The sensor will be exhibited at the awards ceremony in ‘Haus der Wirtschaft’ on November 7th 2024-Jan 25th 2025.
