Varjo’s VR Headset Awarded as the Product of the Year at Helsinki Design Awards

Helsinki – September 12, 2019 – Varjo, the world’s only human-eye resolution virtual reality headset, has been awarded the prestigious title Product of the Year at the 2019 Helsinki Design Awards. Varjo is a Finnish technology company founded in 2016 which makes world-leading VR/XR products for professional use. The first Varjo headset was launched to the market in early 2019, and it is already shipping to 35 countries from Europe to North America and Japan.

Organized annually in conjunction with Helsinki Design Week, the Helsinki Design Awards recognize designers, organizations, and innovations that have promoted design during the year. The winners have been chosen by an accomplished jury of design professionals.

Best in its category

According to the jury, “the Varjo VR-1 is the best in its category. It integrates many competence areas and will impact all of our lives. The product is already where progress is going.”

The design of Varjo’s VR headset has been done in-house, and the product has a distinctive form. The unique mirror surface in the front plate sets it apart from all other VR/XR hardware in particular. 

“Varjo’s vision is to revolutionize human creativity and efficiency with iconic products that seamlessly combine reality and the virtual world. We do not compromise our products in any way, and Varjo has become an international talking point and flagship of creating the future by combining top technology and design. We are flattered and happy that combining successful design and high tech has gained attention internationally, as well as in Finland,” said Jussi Mäkinen, Chief Marketing Officer at Varjo.
