We are extremely proud to announce that the Share & Serve, Cooking & Preparation and Storage & Utility collections have each received the coveted Red Dot Award 2014
for design excellence. Judged by a 40-member expert panel and evaluated amongst 4,815 entries from 53 countries, multiple products within each collection received a Red Dot Award for innovative, high quality product design.
Sebastian expressed his pride and delight at winning the Red Dot: “The annual Red Dot awards are a bit like the ‘Oscars’ of the design industry; judged by an international panel in Germany they are the benchmark of outstanding design. For Universal Expert to get Red Dots for three of its collections in one year is an incredible accolade not only for our team, but for our licensees and manufacturers as well. It also underpins our core beliefs in universal use and appeal coupled to expert quality and design.“
The Red Dot has established itself as one of the most sought after design quality marks in the world. Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot, describes the decision process in awarding the Red Dot:
“The 40 experts assess the quality of the entries with the utmost care and attention, but only the best products receive an award from the jury. This is especially reflected in the percentage of successful entries in the Red Dot Award, which is much smaller in contrast to other international design competitions. Therefore, winners can be proud of their achievements – with their entries, they stood out from the rest and were able to pass the test in front of the critical eyes of the experts.”
On July 7, 2014 in Essen, Germany, Universal Expert will be formally presented with the acclaimed Red Dot during the traditional Red Dot Gala. The winners’ exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum Essen will also be opened, presenting the award-winning Universal Expert collections to a wide audience for four weeks before they enter the museum’s permanent exhibition.
The accolade of multiple Red Dot Awards within the first year of launch is yet another fantastic achievement for all of us at Universal Expert. We feel very proud to be offering our partners and customers, world-class product design.
You can find our award winning products at major department stores and retail outlets throughout the UK, US, Europe and Asia. For details of our stockists please visit our ‘stockists’ page on the website and for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
