The Red Dot Award.

Product Design has roots dating back as far as 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto: In search of good design and innovation, a jury comprising roughly 40 members assessed the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise.

A choice of three different distinctions are awarded: The Red Dot: Best of the Best is reserved for the best products in a category. Only 1% of entries received this distinction. The Red Dot is the distinction for high design quality, while the Honourable Mention is awarded for a particularly well-executed aspect of design work.

Winning the Red Dot: Best of the Best is the well-earned recognition for excellent design performance. The awarded products are all characterised by an innovative symbiosis of aesthetics and function. The fact that such a small number of entries received the top distinction is proof of the rigorous nature of the judging criteria applied in the competition. I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success, said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award.
