Experience and Expertise are Most Important

The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the biggest design competitions in the world. In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. The international judging panel, comprising experienced experts from various disciplines, has already been meeting for more than 60 years to identify the best designs. During an evaluation process lasting several days, they try out the products, discuss them and finally reach a well-founded judgement on the design qualities of the entries. In line with the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, in their evaluation they set great store by criteria such as degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, long useful life and ergonomics.
