The Red Dot Design Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions. The Red Dot Label is one of the most prestigious marks of design quality globally.
According to the Red Dot Award website, “Every year, the Red Dot Award: Product Design sets out to find the year’s best products. The products selected by the Red Dot Jury to win an award may be aesthetically appealing, functional, smart or innovative, but what they all have in common is their outstanding design.”
When we developed the Hedgehog Dryer series, we initially researched, purchased and tested the existing shoe dryers on the market and discovered that the industry had not advanced in several decades. Low air flow and a clunky design were the norm, with limited functionality. It seemed ironic to us that Scandinavian families, which value product design as well as functionality, had such widespread use of these antiquated dryer products.
