This announcement comes only a few weeks after Lexon’s best-selling Oblio was honored with two prestigious international prizes - a TIME Best Invention Award and a CES Innovation Award - confirming the French brand’s continued leadership in innovative product design, with a total of more than 200 awards received since its creation in 1991.
“2021 marks the 30th anniversary of Lexon, so this exceptional recognition comes at a perfect timing. We couldn’t be happier to celebrate this milestone with such paramount achievement which proves our consistent ability to create objects that combine aesthetics and function, but most importantly, that are part of our daily lives.
2021 is also synonymous with the global crisis, one that inevitably led us to adapt our business to new realities, to rethink our products portfolio and to focus even more on designing solutions that truly meet our changing environments, whether it’s for the home, the work or the new mobility.
Today, these distinctions not only celebrate our resilience, they also validate the quality of the experience we strive to bring to our customers in all circumstances,” says Boris Brault, Lexon’s CEO.
Since its acquisition by BOW Group in 2018, Lexon has experienced significant online growth and staggering expansion in the US where the brand is today listed among the most prominent retailers including Target, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Best Buy and MoMA Design Store. In the coming weeks, Lexon will pursue its international development by completing the takeover of its long-term Chinese Master License who has built the brand domestically for the past 10 years, opening more than 80 retail stores, developing online sales on JD.com and Taobao, as well as growing profitable B2B activities.
The successful integration of Lexon among BOW Group has created highly valuable synergies with sister company MyKronoz, in terms of product design, R&D capabilities, sales channels and digitalization. BOW Group has thereby proven its ability to acquire external companies within its manufacturing, selling and distribution structures to scale its business operations. Today, the Group is looking at new opportunities to further enlarge its portfolio with product offering and services, in order to become a leading 360° platform of lifestyle consumer tech.
