Roboception, together with industrial designer Tilo Wuesthoff, has won an award in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019. Our rc_visard received the Red Dot, which the renowned jury only awards to products that feature an outstanding design.
“I would like to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their wonderful success. The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The laureates are thus setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot, in reference to the winners.
At Roboception, we are very proud that (after the iF DESIGN AWARD in 2018) yet another jury was convinced of the outstanding design quality of our sensor. From the very beginning, it has been one of our goals to not only optimize our sensors in terms of functionality, but to make them visually attractive as well. In the end, they are typically mounted to our customer’s robots in very prominent positions.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for more than 60 years in order to select the year’s best designs. During an adjudication process that spans several days, they try out the products, discuss them and ultimately reach a well-founded decision regarding the design quality of the entries. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, their assessment focuses on criteria such as the level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, longevity and ergonomics.
Now, rc_visard designer Tilo Wuesthoff is looking forward to receiving the award at a fabulous award ceremony taking place in Essen in early July.
