A rotary sealing device from Hawo was recently awarded the red dot award for product design. The hd 680 DEI-V device, which was designed to offer secure and sterile packaging of medical instruments, is part of the company’s Generation Easy sealer line. “We have not only struck a chord with our customers [with the Generation Easy devices], but also redefined product design within our sector with the hd 680er series of rotary sealing devices,” comments Christian Wolf, CEO of hawo GmbH. “As the major international benchmark of design, the red dot design award is further confirmation of, and motivation toward continued reliance on outstanding product design.”
This year, designers and companies from 57 countries entered 4252 products into the product design competition. “Every product that received an accolade in the red dot design award had to convince an international jury of experts,” explains design expert Professor Peter Zec, who is also the managing partner of the red dot GmbH & Co. KG.
Together with the other prize-winning products, the hawo hd 680 DEI-V will be on display from 6 July to 1 August in the exhibition in Essen, Germany. It will then be exhibited for at least one year in the permanent exhibition at the red dot design museum, which houses 1500 products in an exhibition area of 4000 square metres.
