Ren wins prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2019

March 2019, by Gemma Snelling, Marketing Manager

We are thrilled and extremely proud to announce that Ren has claimed a prize in the 'Product Design' category of the world-renowned Red Dot Awards.

The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the world’s largest design competitions (dating back to 1955!). In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprised of experienced experts from varying disciplines in search of good design and innovation. Their assessment focused on the following criteria; level of innovation, functionality, quality, longevity and ergonomics. 

We’re in good company; past category winners include Apple, GoPro, Logitech and Dyson.

Defined by clean lines and performance, Ren scored highly. The range was introduced by DW Windsor to challenge the conventional perception of illuminated bollards from a simple, refined yet robust body. Its flat-screen optical system representing genuine innovation over existing lighting bollards.

Suitable for illuminating paths, squares, gardens and parks and available in two formats: a 'Performance' version with minimal upward light and strong forward and lateral projection: for excellent ground illumination, and a 'Performance Plus' version which offers the same downward lighting qualities with an added area of diffused light. This extra optical component enhances volumetric vertical illumination for facial recognition and increased ambient lighting. 

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot said,

" I would like to congratulate the winners on their wonderful success. The fact that their products were able to satisfy the strict criteria of the jury bears testimony to their award-winning design quality. The winners are setting key trends in the design industry and are showing where future directions may lead"

Ren will join the 'Design on Stage' exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, which presents all the award-winning products and will also feature in the Red Dot Design Yearbook, both online and in the Red Dot Design App.

Alan Grant, DW Windsor Design and Development Director concludes,

" This is a remarkable achievement for the range, not many exterior products gain recognition in these prestigious awards, let alone a bollard. We knew Ren ‘went beyond the ordinary’, but it’s great that this has been confirmed by the design community"
