The Red Dot Design Awards are here!
The product design competition has existed since 1955. Its award, the “red dot”, is an internationally recognised quality seal. The best products receive the “red dot: best of the best” award.
This year Konstatin Grcic has done it again with his Table B for BD Barcelona.  This technically brilliant piece, the first from his "extrusion collection", wowed the judging panel with its sleek aluminium table top offered with timber trellis-like legs, a bold concrete pedestal or fine steel structures.  Involving a number of engineering specialists in it's development the Table B achieves simplicity of form through extensive material exploration and boasts lengths of up to 5m! Other worthy winners this year were Tipo from the team at Japans' Axona Aichi, the people that brought us the brilliant stacking Daylight Chair made from recycled car batteries.

Belgium's Eden Design too picked up a well deserved best of best award for OnLine.  The ingenius lighting system that affords full functionality and diversity in decorative, track and exhibition lighting.  Marrying the magic of magnets with refined European design and cutting edge luminary research, this system needs to be seen to be believed.  A truly worthy winner!
