Red Dot Award : Design Concept 2016


The Red Dot is the award for high design quality. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to works that set themselves apart significantly from comparable works thanks to their excellent design.

This year, 4,698 concepts from 60 countries were entered in the competition. 340 of them honoured in the Red Dot Award: Concept Design 2016. 245 projects received the globally coveted Red Dot, 42 were awarded with the Red Dot: Best of the Best for their exceptional design excellence and 53 concepts were credited with an Honourable Mention.

“Each of the winning concepts represent a significant achievement on the part of the designer. The adjudication process is a particularly demanding one, with each concept subjected to intense scrutiny led by a critical set of jury members”, articulated Ken Koo as he spoke of the adjudication process. “Only 6% of all entries were awarded a Red Dot this year, making each awarded concept an outstanding feat of accomplishment. The Red Dot Award also seeks to open doors for designers, giving them more opportunities to bring realise their own work”.
