The intuitively designed and functional Linak Desk Panel DPG1C for sit-stand desks has been awarded Red Dot Award in the “Product Design” category.
In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. The stringent evaluation criteria include the innovation level of the submitted product, the functionality, the formal quality, ergonomics and the product life.
Functionality was a key factor when developing the Desk Panel DPG. The goal was to use the design to motivate users to make even better use of their sit-stand desks. For this reason it is a special honour for Linak to receive this award.
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 favourite desk heights and app connectivity via integrated Bluetooth wireless technology.
Since 1955, Red Dot awards every year has been given to the best products of the year. True to the motto: “In search of good design and innovation”.
The prize ceremony 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.
The 2018/2019 Red Dot Design Yearbook, comprising all the winning products of the year, will be published at the same time. The products will also be presented in the online exhibition, the Red Dot App, and the online design portal: “Red Dot 21”.
