Hosted in Essen, Germany, the Red Dot Awards date all the way back to 1955 and aim to recognise the very best in product design and innovation. During this year’s edition, the Linus® Smart Lock from Yale received not one, but two awards in separate categories!
The Red Dot Awards have been long established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality and top design. Competing against thousands of products across 49 different divisions, Linus® secured Product Design Awards in both, the Security System and Smart Product categories.
The Linus® Smart Lock was judged by 40 international experts who tested, discussed and evaluated each of the 6,500 entries individually and compared them in criteria such as degree of innovation, functionality, durability and ecological compatibility. Featuring a refined, rounded surface and a stunning brushed metal finish, Linus® left the jury impressed with its sleek and intelligent design.
Thanks to this amazing success, Linus® will be marked with a Red Dot Winner Label and presented in the Red Dot Design Yearbook, available at international exhibitions and online. Winning the Awards also means that Yale will be joining the exclusive Red Dot Network aiming to bring together the best of the design industry.
We’re delighted with Linus® great success and looking forward to attending the Red Dot Gala Award Ceremony in Essen on 22nd June, where we will join together to celebrate the most ground-breaking developments in product design and innovation!
