Over 60 years
For more than 60 years, the Red Dot Awards have recognized the best product designs in terms of functionality, quality, ergonomics and innovation, and more recently sustainability and ecological compatibility. All these factors have led to the awards becoming one of the most sought-after international awards for design excellence. For the 2022 awards, more than 5,500 products were submitted by large and small companies from around the world. The products are judged based on nine characteristics by an independent jury of 50 international professionals.
