What a beautiful day! Last Saturday, a brave part of our team reached the snow covered peak of the Bodok Mountains (approx. 1200 m). Our plan to visit the snow flower area was accomplished in about 30K steps in the pure, untouched deep snow. We decided to follow the bear steps, hoping to find the snow flowers. They were still hiding below the snow carpet, although the sun’s warmth rapidly calls them to appear. It was a hard and challenging yet breathtaking event that we promised to repeat next year too.
We saved the world again, toured the hills of Sugásfürdő, fought for survival and finally found the antidote to the pandemic! We survived the heavy rain, almost half marathon cycling, climbing, walking, rescue operations connected with paintball and our strength remained even for extreme wall climbing. Despite the generational differences, our team performed excellently both on physical and mental tests. Because we were together and encouraged each other, as a team!
This was the Gnome Design team building for this year: #teamspirit, #survivalchallenge, #extreme-outdoor, #unicumisthevaccine
As part of our “Investing in the future – Gnome Design 2030” project, we are proud to announce that the design of our company’s office under construction has been awarded with the “Passive House” pre-qualification made by the International Passive House Institute of Darmstadt, Germany.

In our mighty project won under the Romanian Operational Regional Program (POR 2.2), we have summarized our goals for the next ten years. We are scaling two technological strands of the project’s professional line, which primarily enables the development of industrial applications for mobile and tablet devices.
On the investment line we will build a centrally located development center, which will also be the first qualified passive industrial building of Sfantu Gheorghe.
What is really successful team building? Not just completing repeated tasks from year to year, but having a connection and a real life mission to accomplish. Moreover, stretch your boundaries, experience the team power and team action! Get to know yourself and your colleagues even in easy and challenging situations.
A lifelong outdoor experience where you combine your physical and mental abilities with real-life experiences!
