Latest recognition for Zepter International

Following the longtime experience and proven efficiency in therapy and prevention, BIOPTRON shows once more the true power of light and wins the 1st prize as most efficient energy based anti-aging device at the 2nd European Aesthetic & Anti-aging medicine Congress in Paris, held on 24-25 October.

An International team of medical experts presented the effects of Bioptron light therapy in anti-ageing, showing clinical studies that proved the positive and simulative effects of Bioptron Light Therapy on fibroblast cells in our body, the ones responsible for collagen and elastin production.

As the skin ages, as well as when being exposed to sun rays, the quantity of these proteins in human skin decreases, the outcome are fines lines and wrinkles. Safe and non-invasive daily treatments with Bioptron Light Therapy (for only 10 minutes), will make these wrinkles disappear.

Dr. Michael T. McNamara, global international opinion leader of Zepter International and a renowned doctor practicing a unique specialty of preventive health check-ups, presented both anti-aging and medical prevention usage of Bioptron Light Therapy.

Dr Christian Deperdu, dermatologist and anti-aging specialist from Beausoleil in France and Dr. Jasmina Lalosevic from Belgrade, Serbia, the founder of anti-age clinic Aesthetic Med, have held lectures on Bioptron Light Therapy. They have demonstrated the efficiency and simplicity of Bioptron Light Therapy usage in various popular anti - aging procedures: after mesotherapy and hyaluronic fillers, PRP lifting and face-liftings with mesonites, peelings and laser procedures. They have also shared their own successful experiences in daily use of Bioptron Light Therapy.

As the world famous Monaco Yacht Show drew to a close on Saturday 24th many of the world’s most majestic yachts that had made the beautiful marina in Monaco their home for the weekend set sail for the four corners of the world. The hugely succesful event attracted participation from the world’s most advanced and impressive yachts which came from far and wide to place anchor in the exclusive surroundings of the Principality for the duration of the Monaco Yacht Show September 21st – 24th.

As these yachts plotted a course for far-flung places such as the Carribean or South Pacific, the news they will carry will be all about one thing. Unquestionably, the star of the show for the Weekend was ‘joyMe. The personal yacht of Zepter International’s President and founder Mr. Philip Zepter. ‘joyMe is a 50 meter yacht that pushes the boundaries of conventional yacht design and is the embodiment of a dream and a philosophy that permeates the company life of Zepter International and those of the over 80,000,000 satisfied users of Zepter products worldwide.

Designed in part by Mr. Zepter himeself, ‘joyMe breaks the mould in terms of modern yacht design. Created with the ethos of the Zepter Company and their commitment to high design ideals and innovative technology, ‘joyMe is different in every respect. The exterior form and its sumptuous lines are a bold statement of excitement and a joy in the beautiful. Accentuating its length rather than its height the craft seems in a permanent state of readiness. An energised state of action, even when it is at rest in the dock. The exuberant paint job together with its flowing curves do not shy away from the celebration of youth and positivity that it was designed to embrace.

‘joyMe was the focal point of the event and attracted news crews and journalists from all over the world such as TF1 form France, Fashion TV, Gazette De Monaco, RTL, TV Prima, Czech Republic, Yachts Russia, Luxury Magazine Rich & Famous, Romania and broadcasters from Austria and the Balkan region and many other major players in the world’s media, who traveled especially to report on this luxury vessel and what it represents not only to the yacht-building industry but to manufacturing, technology, design and lifestyle generally.
Friday night was ‘the big one’ as ‘joyMe played host to the most glamorous and important guests many from Monaco’s own social scene but also internationally renowned VIPs. The best in music entertainment was provided with world famous DJs, Anja J and music from Brazilian drummers and Fashion from Zepter Style, Svetlana Livadnaia and Catalin Botezatu.

Invitations for the event were in high demand and the event that every one wanted to attend among the attandees of note were, of course Mr. Zepter himself, Sir Michael Smurfit, Honorary Irish Consul to Monaco and leading European business figure, Dr. Michael Mc Namara MD, world famous medical doctor and pioneering expert in three-dimensional Total Body Scanning technology and Paul Mc Guinness, Manager of U2.

The night was not only a chance to rub shoulders with important guests, but also to experience life on board ‘joyMe and to celebrate the Zepter way of life. This bold and beautiful feat of engineering is built with the sole purpose of bringing happiness and well-being to all who step aboard. As Zepter applies its advanced technology and design expertese to solutions for healthier, happier living, ‘joyMe to is an example of the Zepter Design approach that design should be beautiful and useful and create a better life for the user.

‘joyMe is more than a yacht, It is a celebration of a dream, a dream that has already touched the lives of millions all over the world and an affirmation that anything is possible. It is the first finished project of Philip Zepter Yachts Ltd. and marks a new era of luxury as there are many more in development. Zepter International continues its expansion into high end luxury fields with Zeptair, its luxury airplane company and now Philip Zepter Yachts Ltd., which floats the Zepter Philosophy on the high seas.

The creation of this nautical masterpiece has ignited Mr. Zepter’s passion for the sea and his pursuit of a lifestyle set perfectly in equilibrium between relaxation, pleasure and business success. Indeed it is this philosophy that has spurred Mr. Zepter in his global success with Zepter International present in over 60 countries on 5 continents. Zepter International always pushes the boundaries in creating new and uncompromising solutions to offer a healthier and happier lifestyle for all its customers. This pleasure craft reflects the design ideals of Zepter International and how conceptual design can have a real and transformative effect on the user and aid in the realisation of a better life. The mission of Zepter International spells out this simple creed and how we can use success to be a force for good in society with the simple motto – Live Longer.

Philip Zepter, President and founder of Zepter International, joins the ranks of only five non-U.S.citizens who have been awarded the prestigious Ellis Island Medal of Honor 2011 for his genuine philanthropic support and unique Mission of Health

New York, NY, MAY 16, 2011 - Mr. Phillip Zepter, President and founder of Zepter International and world renowned philanthropist, accepted the prestigious international Ellis Island Medal of Honor 2011 at a ceremony on Ellis Island in New York on May 7, 2011. Mr. Zepter was chosen from thousands of nominees for his personal and professional philanthropic contributions. Furthermore, Zepter International’s Mission of Health was recognized for benefiting not only the health of millions of people worldwide but improving society as a whole.

The Ellis Island Medal of Honor is awarded to outstanding individuals who exemplify a life dedicated to community service, preserving and celebrating the history of their ancestry, building relationships between cultural groups, or sharing their personal or professional achievements for the greater good.

“The Ellis Island Medal of Honor celebrates the richness and diversity of American life and symbolizes its enduring spirit. The immigrants who formed the backbone of the nation passed Ellis Island in their quest for freedom of speech, religion and economic opportunity. The Ellis Island Medal of Honor pays homage not only to individuals, but to the pluralism and democracy that have enabled the ancestry groups to maintain their cultural diversity,” said NECO Executive Director Rosemarie Taglione.

The United States Senate and House of Representatives have both officially passed resolutions recognizing the Ellis Island Medals of Honor, which ranks among this country’s most prestigious awards. Each year, Ellis Island Medal of Honor recipients are listed in the Congressional Record, honoring those who have made enduring contributions to the nation and to the world. 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the award’s history. As an international recipient, it is an additional honor for Mr. Zepter.

By receiving the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, Mr. Zepter joins the ranks of only five non-U.S. citizens who have been honored, including Tony Blair, along with former American Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, and Gerald Ford and famous philanthropic individuals such as Frank Sinatra, Muhammad Ali, Rosa Parks, Elie Wiesel, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Mickey Mantle, Gloria Estefan, Donald Trump, Lee Iacocca, and Barbara Walters.

“Philip Zepter’s story is an uplifting one of hard work, self-belief and a willingness to take risks. From modest beginnings in 1986, his products are now made in Germany, Switzerland and Italy, and are available in more than 60 countries worldwide.” The Monaco Times, 2009.

Mr. Zepter has built a multi-billion dollar business through more than 25 years of true dedication and hard work. Starting with a brilliant idea of providing high quality luxury products that enhance people’s lifestyles and enable them to live longer, Zepter International enjoyed phenomenal growth over the years. Today Zepter International employs over 130,000 people worldwide, while a Zepter presentation starts at least every 10 seconds somewhere in the world and over 760,000,000 products have been sold to more than 80,000,000 satisfied users worldwide.

Mr. Zepter’s family possesses a substantial background in both entrepreneurial and not-for-profit business ventures, and Mr. Zepter has stayed true to these values. “Social responsibility is something that is built into the DNA of Zepter Group. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year the company has always placed at the center of all its business goals the idea of making the world a better place,” said Mr. Philip Zepter.

For many years Mr. Philip Zepter has generously supported the world’s biggest sport events, such as the prestigious F1 world championships (2000 - 2010) including the famous Grand Prix of Monaco, FIBA official tournaments (2003 -2011) as well as Ice Hockey World Championships (2001 - 2011), always with the same ideal: Zepter – Live Longer.

He is also the Founder of the Zepter philosophy, a philosophy of healthy living and perfection aimed at maintaining the health of present and future generations and solving ecological problems.

“Until now, we haven’t been aware of how many lives we saved and how many were prolonged. Even we were astonished to learn that those are in the millions. So that is why we have to triple our presence and our activities. Today, more than ever, the world needs Zepter’s Mission of Health,” said Mr. Phillip Zepter.

In 1994, Mr. Zepter and his wife started the Philip and Madlena Zepter Foundation, an organization committed to providing scholarships, supporting humanitarian work and benefiting thousands of people in desperate need. The Foundation funds are going go toward grants for young talent, sponsorship of scientific, technical projects and cultural achievements like the Madlenianum Opera House and Theatre, the first privately built opera house in Europe since the Second World War. The Foundation is also encourages and promotes cultural and artistic contributions through Artzept, which awards generous prizes and exhibition opportunities to young artists and designers. “It is one thing to believe in good and useful design. It’s quite another thing to actually invest in it for the pure pleasure of seeing talent emerge and thrive,” said Madlena Zepter.

It is testament to Philip Zepter’s vision that the very social issues he has been addressing, namely nutrition and well-being through the promotion of a health lifestyle, have become even more relevant today.

Additional awards received by Mr. Zepter include the influential international Golden Mercury Award (awarded 5 times as the leader in Italian industrial progress); Cavaliere del Lavoro della Repubblica Italiana Award for outstanding services rendered to Italian Industry and the Community, the B.I.D. Gold Award for Quality, Leadership, Technology and Innovation and the Silver Medal of Honor of the Russian Academy of Science for contributions to medicine and the protection of public health.

Mr. Zepter’s commitment helping those in need is evident through the amount of lives touched by his work with regular, significant donations to a whole host of international charities and foundations, some of which include the International Red Cross, UNICEF and Save the Children. In Madagascar there is a Zepter village consisting of Elementary and High schools, Health Clinic and over 100 houses. Even one planet outside our solar system has been named after him.

Receiving the Ellis Island Medal of Honor adds to this long list of accomplishments and reflects the true colors of his philanthropic endeavors.

Prince Albert honours Philip Zepter by including his donation of historic powerboat in his private collection.

The boat on which Guido Cappellini achieved his 10th World Title is donated to the Prince of Monaco’s private collection of antique cars by Mr. Philip Zepter.

An historic day for the Principality of Monaco, an historic day for Zepter International and of course, a proud moment for Guido Cappellini. On the 2rd of July 2010, Prince Albert II of Monaco included in the Collection de Voitures Anciennes de S.A.S. le Prince de Monaco (the royal collection of antique and legendary automobiles), the F1 Inshore powerboat catamaran, on which Guido Cappellini won an unprecedented 10th World Title.

Generously donated by Mr. Philip Zepter, President and founder of Zepter International and historic sponsor of Cappellini’s endeavours, this is the first time a nautical vessel will feature in the museum and the inclusion of a boat in an otherwise exclusively automobile collection was a high honour indeed for all involved. The powerboat – DAC CM 2009, which made history last December when Cappellini won his tenth World Title will be on permanent display in the museum and will forever be a testament to Capellini’s achievement and to the name of Zepter who’s name is proudly displayed on the boat itself.

press release



Zepter International Design Award is a thirteen-year old competition, an exhibition of a synergistic union of art, design and functionality. It presents a certain vision of what the future holds for those precious little and not-so-little, but ubiquitous objects that fill our daily lives, a vision of them seen through the sparkling eyes of the designers – those artists who adorn our lives and whose works make us feel happier.
This year’s competition is yet another confirmation of how invaluable are the aspirations of Ms Madlena Zepter – the ArtZept founder and patron, and a great art lover – to encourage the most talented young world-wide designers to express their creativity and thereby gaining publicity and the deserved acclamation.
Almost a decade and a half of ArtZept has seen thousands of artists and designers who have taken part in the competition and whose envisaged and realised concepts have fulfilled the goals of beauty, functionality and the joy of use. During this time, over a hundred awards and honorary certificates have been given and some of the designs have been produced in small series thus justifying the motto of Zepter International Company “to make life more beautiful, longer, healthier and happier”.

This year’s competition theme is The Art of Frames.

There are many kinds of treasures – material and those non-material, which, for most of us, hold an immense, immeasurable value. Material riches such as jewellery, money, bonds, gold or gems are usually kept in well-secured places, but those of a far greater value – our memories, recollections and impressions – we try to safeguard not from thieves but from a more ominous and cunning predator – oblivion.
A way to protect them, a reminder of beautiful, precious, but occasionally heart-rending moments of our lives are photographs, paintings, or portraits of our loved ones. In order to emphasise their personal value – we put them in frames.
Picture frames are much older than we think – in fact, they have existed for much longer than photography. Did you know that the first picture frames date from ancient Egypt?
The earliest frames were framing borders used for dividing scenes in ancient Egyptian and Greek wall paintings. However, one of the oldest frames as we know them today dates from 2nd century AD – a Fayum mummy portrait was discovered in an Egyptian tomb still within its decorative wooden frame. Throughout history, from Antiquity, through the Renaissance, Baroque, Classicism to Modernism, frames have changed both regarding style and function.
So, what did we expect from our artists and designers – participants of the contest? First of all, we expected new, creative ideas for the design and shape of frames for paintings, photographs and mirrors to enclose our cherished memories, fragments of life, lasting impressions, imageries of scenes and even reflections of ourselves captured in the mirrors of our daily lives. We trusted their imagination and creativity to design and shape the form, choose the material and highlight the function.
The entries we received have taken us through a variety of concepts and visions – a multitude of new ideas. Some artists worked towards their solutions by developing functional and technological innovations with occasional startling and humorous applications while others derived their concepts from habits and traditions. Some designers interpreted the theme in a poetical, almost lyrical manner and explored the aesthetical, visual sensations – the associative, perceptive and emotional features.
The theme – The Art of Frames – allowed the participants enough freedom to express themselves in a great variety of ways, presenting the objects of the both worlds – the outer world that surrounds them and the inner world of their artistic personalities. The artists have come from various areas – some are visual artists, others – industrial designers, architects, some are experienced and some – novices, but all, without exception, share extraordinary enthusiasm and desire to present their original works. The best amongst them have been awarded prizes and we warmly congratulate them!

The 15th edition of the International Design Award open to young talents from all over the world

The 16th edition
of the International Design Award
open to young talents
from all over the world.

This year’s competition theme is BATHROOM ACCESSORIES – FUNCTIONAL OBJECTS WITH STYLE. Bathroom accessories have become important elements with regards to design as related to a very close relationship between people and objects that surround and serve them day in, day out. Such objects are in the focal range of the person who uses them and alongside this utilitarian – functional purpose they also have some deeper, more nuanced, more evocative and indeed – more symbolic meanings. We design our personal image, our day and our night. Accessories add to the bathroom’s charm and distinctive style and also contribute to the overall comfort and enjoyment. Choosing accessories is an art and a process which not only enhances the taste but is also more aesthetically appealing and inviting.

Including a heated towel rail into the bathroom composition is a great way of adding some spa-like luxury and ensuring that anyone can have access to deliciously dry towels whenever they need them.

Without soap dishes, the soap would dissolve into a sticky mess on the side of the sink, without towel rails, soggy towels would lie on the floor and without toilet paper holders, the toilet roll would sit uselessly on top of the cistern, cluttering up the space.

Counter, wall-mounted or freestanding, they represent those finishing touches that pull a design together to create visual harmony and ensure that the space in question is as utilitarian and user-friendly as possible. It’s the finer details, the smaller accessories that can make a bathroom space an absolute pleasure. It is the little finishes such as toothbrush holders, colourful shower curtains, trendy storage baskets or sleek bins that add the “wow” factor to the overall composition and make it stand apart giving it a feeling of upmarket exclusivity.
Following in the footsteps of previous competition themes, there are no set boundaries with regards to material and techniques and we are eagerly awaiting a host of exciting, synergetic and extraordinary entries.

An Expert Jury appointed by Zepter International shall select the most successful works on this topic.

The entries ought to be submitted no later than October 1st  2019 in electronic format only and to the following e-mail addresses: gordana.biba.markovic@gmail.com and pressoffice@zepteritaly.com via https://wetransfer.com Works sent after the specified date shall not be considered for the competition.

Philanthropist Madlena Zepter established this award in 2004 and since then, Artzept has grown from strength to strength and is regarded today as one of the most acclaimed design awards in the world. Every year, Mrs. Zepter defines a competition theme and a jury made of very reputable artists and critics judges the work of the participants.This year the winners will be picked by an expert Jury made of some of the most renowned luminaries from the arts: art historian and critic Gordana Biba Markovic, art director Carlo Magnoli and industrial designer Prof. Kosta Krsmanovic, president of the jury Carla Tolomeo, Andras Rez and Pino Spagnolo.

The contest is open to young, emerging talent from all over the world and aims at stimulating creativity and igniting new ideas as well as supporting exceptionally talented designers. The ethos of the award is also in line with Zepter’s mission, which looks to enhance people’s quality of life around the world through the quality of the goods it sells.
