Desk Panel DPG wins Red Dot Design Award for product design

The intuitively designed LINAK Desk Panel DPG1C has been awarded a 2018 Red Dot Award in the category “Product Design”.

For its intuitive design, the LINAK Desk Panel DPG1C has received a prestigious 2018 Red Dot Award in the category “Product Design”.

The Desk Panel DPG1C has been awarded with the Red Dot Award, the official seal of the internationally renowned Red Dot Design Competition.

In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. The stringent evaluation criteria included the innovation level of the submitted product, the functionality, the formal quality, ergonomics and the product life.

Awarded for product design and functionality 
For LINAK it is a special honor to receive this award. Especially in the development of the Desk Panel DPG, the question of product design in connection with the functionality was a key factor. The goal was to use the design to motivate users to make even better use of their sit-stand desks. 

As a result, the Desk Panel DPG combines unique features such as intuitive handling without the use of buttons, motivating reminder functions through an integrated LED light strip, a memory position function for the user’s favorite desk heights and app connectivity via integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology.

International Red Dot jury voted for the DPG Desk Panel
The “Red Dot Award: Product Design“ has roots dating back as far as 1955. Since then, it has determined the best products of each year. True to the motto: “In search of good design and innovation“, an international jury of around 40 members judged the products individually and on the original. 

The official nomination of the Red Dot Award winners will take place at the Red Dot Gala on 9 July 2018 in Essen, Germany – home of the Red Dot Design headquarters. At the event, the Red Dot Design Yearbook 2018/2019, in which all the winning products of the year are presented, will be published too. In addition, the products will be shown in the online exhibition, the Red Dot App, and the online design portal: “Red Dot 21”
