Smart DS-XL LED System wins Red Dot Award

We are proud to announce that we have received the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021, one of the most prestigious design awards in the world. The international jury has awarded the distinction “Red Dot” to the motorised DS-XL® LED System, which stands for high design quality.

Excellent design

The award is only awarded by an international jury to products with an excellent design. With the motorised DS-XL® LED system, we won this globally recognised award in the Product Design category, the category for the most qualitative and innovative product designs. “We are therefore extremely proud of the fact that the international jury of Red Dot recognizes our design with this award. It is the highest international recognition for the time and attention that we have put into the design,” said Bertwin ten Have, head of R&D of Forest Group.

Red Dot Award

The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognizes the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts is comprised of specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinized the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s quality, ergonomics and longevity.
