The Red Dot award appraises the best products created every year. The jury evaluates the entries and only awards a Red Dot to products that win them over with their high design quality. The evaluation process is based on various judging criteria, including degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility.
