Simple and functional design

The CHERRY MX 2.0S keyboard is characterized by minimal, functional shaping and a straightforward design. The gaming keyboard was even awarded the “Special Mention” German Design Award in the “Excellent Product Design” award category in the subcategory, “Computer and Communication" in 2021. The focus is on pure function, based on the so-called “Bauhaus concept.”
The functional classic keyboard was designed by Prof. Peter Raab, lecturer at Coburg University of Applied Sciences.
