The Red Dot Award, established in 1955, has become one of the most recognized and sought after design awards in the world. This year, over 5,640 product applications from 55 countries were submitted and assessed by a panel of independent and international jurors who awarded a “The Red Dot: Best of the Best” for groundbreaking design to Design2Gather. This award is the top prize in the Red Dot Award: Product Design, only reserved for the best products in a category.
“We’re honored to be consistently recognized by respected voices in the design community that recognize our goal of designing exceptional products that people love and enjoy,” said Bram Broeken, Design2Gather, Founder and CEO. “This is a reflection of the dedication of our team, as we aim to transform the best ideas into reality by designing products that create impact for the end user and lead to a unique market position.”
The “FlameOn – Barbecue Grill” is a category-defining product, one that uniquely combines a sleek, fashionable design with advanced user benefits, such as a unique portability, and a ground-breaking new way to heat up the coals in a fast and efficient way. The “FlameOn – Barbecue Grill” has been designed for easy portability, easy use and aimed to increase socialization.
The “FlameOn – Barbecue Grill” will be presented in the Red Dot Design Museum, the largest museum for contemporary design. The “Red Dot: Best of the Best” gala will be held on September 28, 2018 in Singapore. Guests from all over the globe will be in attendance to celebrate the prestigious group of winners.
Design2Gather is established for and by designers. The roots of founder Bram Broeken were at the University of Applied science in the department industrial product design. Fascinated by the craft of design but frustrated of the difficulty to get it really out there on the market.
This frustration made him decide to start his own design studio aimed at providing a complete product design service from beginning to end. Soon Design2Gather started to grow rapidly due to the unique focus on end-user experience. In the recent years Design2Gather became an award winning international product Design Company. Their design team is ready to help customers from the very start of a problem statement or design challenge up until mass production of the desired product.
The Dutch in-house design team is headquartered in Shanghai, China, very close to the factories. This locational advantage enables Design2Gather to work directly and efficiently with Chinese factories and makes sure all ideas get ready for mass production.
