The Smart Wands™ Win Red Dot Design Award 2013
Bring out the champagne; we’ve just gotten word that our Smart Wands™ Cordless Body Massagers have been awarded the Red Dot Design Award for Excellence in Product Design—our second Red Dot in as many years, with couples’ massager Tiani™ bringing home last year’s honor.
Regarded as the highest praise for product design – over 4,500 world-renowned brands were in the running for this year’s prize – the Red Dot is a prestigious, internationally-recognized quality seal given to the world’s most groundbreaking, pioneering products since 1955.
This year’s judges included famed fashion designer Jimmy Choo, as well as representatives from a number of high-profile international brands.
In case you’re new around here, our Smart Wands™, powered by SenseTouch™ technology, feature nifty little touch sensors that cause vibration strength to increase upon contact with the skin, mimicking the sensations of a massage therapist. Equipped with integral, rechargeable Li-ion batteries that emit whisper-quiet vibrations, the Smart Wand™ has been dubbed the most powerful fully-waterproof and rechargeable cordless body massager in the world.
The Red Dot Award is already LELO’s fourth major award win this year—having previously being named Pleasure Product Company of the Year and singled out for Excellence in Product Packaging at January’s XBIZ Awards, not to mention our Insignia collection being crowned Best Product Line for Women at the AVN Awards the same month.
LELO representatives will be officially presented with the 2013 Red Dot Design Award on July 1, 2013 when the Smart Wands are inducted into the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, where Tiani™ is proudly being displayed.
