Red Dot Design Award 2019
INSANE! - our Urwahn Bike Stadtfuchs and our designer Sebastian Meinecke has won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019. The Stadtfuchs even received the Red Dot: Best of the Best the top distinction in the competition. It is granted for ground-breaking design and goes to the best products in a category.
As the designer of the Urwahn Bikes Stadtfuchs I’m especially pleased about the Red Dot Award for my reinterpretation of the frame structure. When designing the Urwahn Bikes, it is a great goal to create mobility through the fusion of novel technologies with thoughtful design. The balanced relationship between form and function, which will lead to an aesthetic and user-friendly overall appearance, has also convinced the jury. It will be my pleasure to receive this award at the Red Dot Gala on July 08, 2019, and to present the Stadtfuchs to the public in the annuals, museums and online.
The sought-after “Red Dot” is the revered international seal of outstanding design quality.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. Only 1.5% of the objects entered won a Red Dot: Best of the Best. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for more than 60 years in order to select the year’s best designs. During an adjudication process that spans several days, they try out the products, discuss them and ultimately reach a well-founded decision regarding the design quality of the entries. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, their assessment focuses on criteria such as the level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, longevity and ergonomics.
