3Shape’s D2000 dental lab scanner has been awarded with the Red Dot, the international distinction for high design quality.
The Red Dot’s 41 member jury of designers, design professors and specialist journalists selected the D2000 dental lab scanner from the many entrants.
Over the years, winners of the celebrated prize have included Apple, BMW and Volvo.
Across industries and around the world, Red Dot is seen as the award for high design quality. Only products that set themselves apart considerably through their excellent design receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury. This year, the international experts assessed 5,214 entries from 57 countries, with the D2000 winning praise.
The independent expert Red Dot panel assesses each entry strictly and fairly, live and on-site, according to criteria such as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and president of the Red Dot Award: “With their performances, the Red Dot winners not only demonstrated an extraordinary design quality, but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions.”
July 4, 2016 marks the culmination of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. During the glamorous awards ceremony, the Red Dot: Best of the Best laureates will accept their trophies in front of around 1,200 guests. At the subsequent after-show party “Designers’ Night”, the winners will receive their certificates and celebrate until the early hours in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen in the midst of prize-winning products. All award-winning products will be presented in the special exhibition “Design on Stage” for four weeks, before becoming part of the permanent exhibition.
