On December 5, 2017, Compasso d′Oro International Award Ceremony was held in China Industrial Design Institute, Hangzhou. Xu Guoqing, the founder of KingCamp, attended the ceremony. CAMPING ULTRALIGHT BED (No.: KC3986) researched, developed and designed under his leadership, became China’s first one to win 2017 Compasso d′Oro International Award. Luciano Galimberti, president of Associazione per il Disegno Industriale and members of the judging panel, Jacopo Giliberto, Umberto Zapelloni, Makio Hasuike, Edgardo Angelini, and reporters from all over the world witnessed this great moment in the history of outdoor fields.
Compasso d′Oro, founded in 1954, is the earliest and most influential design prize in the world and is recognized as the Nobel Prize of industrial design. Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali made an announcement that the historical, special and valuable winner works of Compasso d′Oro shall be national heritages. In 2015, Compasso d′Oro set up an international award for excellent designs in the world. That was undoubtedly an unprecedented opportunity and also challenge for Chinese industrial designers. But unfortunately, there has been no Chinese winner to that award. KingCamp, however, broke the situation in December 2017.

The award highly recognized designs that focus on and improve sports tools, devices, garment technology, services and physical exercises, related visual dissemination, and innovations of functions, language and information in the field of sports.
