The Gorenje group, which includes Slovenian manufacturer Gorenje and ATAG, the Dutch appliance brand, was recognised for five of its products at this year’s red dot design awards.
For the Gorenje brand, two awards went to the Aerogor heat pump and the SensoCare NGPS12 new generation washing machine, both designed by the Gorenje Design Studio. In addition, three awards were won by ATAG hobs; the modular Puzello gas hob and the Magna gas hob, both of which feature the innovative Fusion Volcano wok burner, and the ATAG induction hob with matte finish in ground glass.
Red dot design awards are presented for excellence of design, innovation, and high quality of products. This year the best of the 4,662 entries, submitted by 1,865 companies from 54 countries, were selected by a 37 member jury of renowned designers and design experts who applied the criteria of aesthetic trends and sustainable design. In the last eight years, the Gorenje group has received 24 red dot design awards.
Mr. Franjo Bobinac, Gorenje President and CEO, says: "Appliances with innovative features and sophisticated design are one of the motors of our growth and profitability. Well aware of this fact, Gorenje is continuously investing in development and design. The red dot awards received this year are an attestation by the professional community that we have been successful in our pursuits."
Lidija Pritržnik, Head of Product Design at Gorenje Design Studio, adds: "We consider it a great success to see our entries win the award. We are proud to have reached once again a high level of design with our products. The fact that we have repeatedly succeeded in impressing the jury in recent years, despite the harsh competition and a large number of entries, is confirmation that our team is developing in the right direction. We shall continue to design our products with focus on the users, and create products that afford superior user experience."
