X-GLOO doesn’t just impress with the form follows function principle – the jury of the red dot design award also recognized the elegance in design and awarded the X-GLOO a prize in its very first design competition!

Dear winners of the red dot award: product design 2008,

I would like to offer you my sincere congratulations! You have succeeded at distinguishing your product in one of the most stringent and renowned international design competitions. This means that in the judgement of our jury, your product stands up to products from all over the world.

Congratulations also to those awarded with an “Honorable Mention” by our jury. This new category honors products with especially effective design solutions. Such a special mention should serve to encourage companies and designers to place more emphasis on design and quality and test the existing boundaries. The introduction of the “Honourable Mention” category has also made it possible for the jury to make distinctions in a more specific product classification, whereby a “red dot” award gains in significance.

Regardless of whether you were awarded with a red dot: best of the best, red dot or honorable mention: According to expert judgement, you now belong to the best of the design branch and this should be communicated to clients, partners, future clients as well as competitors. For this purpose, we offer you a range of opportunities on the following pages. We look forward to celebrating your award with you and your guests on June 23 2008 at the awards ceremony in the Essener Aalto Theatre as well as at the following Winners’ Dinner and Designers’ Night in the red dot design Museum.

Yours Prof. Dr. Peter Zec – More information about the red dot design award.

“We are excited about our first “Oscar“ and would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of the X-GLOO.”
