A sensational new, multifunctional premium stroller that, in terms of quality and function,
puts the entire competition in the shade! The rental option means that consumers pay no more than for the "premium" China-made competitor model.

François Locher, product designer and co-founder of Locher, Piper and Partner GmbH

 

Strong interest of the trade in new products and fair sales models in connection with
low-threshold access to rental, combined with reduction of goods costs will make QIUNO a sure-fire success.

Marc Nachtergaele, Sales Manager at Locher, Piper and Partner GmbH
 

I've been waiting for this stroller for 40 years: practical, comfortable with finest aesthetics.
The project could have come from the Apple think-tank. And to round it off: a really good dealer-friendly sales concept!

Philipp Gremmler, owner of "Das Kinderzimmer", Munich

 

 

Our goal is to re-invent and re-design household and industrial products to significantly improve their functionality, form and materiality, with maximum emphasis on high quality and durability.

Company Timeline

Two friends, German inventor Marian Piper and Swiss product designer François Locher, both fathers of three, teamed up in 2018 to completely redesign the conventional stroller. Its inadequate functionality, outdated 90’s design, general poor quality and low ecological and ethical standards called for creative new concepts and innovation!

2019: Marian Piper and François Locher they founded Locher, Piper und Partner GmbH, together with Swiss mechanical engineer Matthias Günthart.

2020: Cooperation with the Swiss University FHNW begins.

2021: Belgian Sales Manager Marc Nachtergaele joins the team. Marc Nachtergaele was largely responsible for the success of Joolz in Europe and also worked for Brio and Kiddy.

2021: World-renowned actor and musician Arón Piper becomes a shareholder in the company.

2022: German engineer Dr. Roland Schröder joins the team. He further refines the stroller’s complex technology with ingenious solutions.

2022: Construction of the first fully functioning chassis prototype by Dr. Schröder: the stroller chassis opens AND closes automatically at the push of a button, by purely mechanical means!
