At Norwegian interior and design magazine Bo Bedre's anual celebration of Norwegian design in August, GU was the proud receiver of the "Manufacturer of the Year" award.
“This years winner is a manufacturer with traditions in tune with its great history, and in the past year GU has been through a change where they have increased their relevance as a contemporary producer of quality products...They open up new product areas, displaying courage and ambition, and trust designers they work with. Together they create something new - not only new products but new communications and new business in new channels."
