Toyota Material Handling wins Red Dot Award 2015

Once again, BT Levio P-series, proved its high design quality when Toyota Material Handling wins Red Dot Award 2015.

BT Levio P-series powered pallet truck from Toyota Material Handling Europe won over the 38-member jury of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. BT Levio P-series has been awarded earlier iF Product Design Award 2015.

The international experts discussed and assessed each of the 4,928 entries from 56 countries. But only the designs that won over the jury with their quality and innovative power were given an award. BT Levio P-series succeeded in convincing the jury members, deservedly winning the sought-after Red Dot seal of quality. Throughout the world and across different industries, Red Dot is seen as the award for high design quality. The international Red Dot jury bestows the sought-after seal of quality only to those products that stand out clearly from comparable entries thanks to their excellent design.

With roughly 2,000 exhibits over 4,000 square metres, the Red Dot Design Museum presents the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design. The successful entries in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 will be shown from 29 June to 26 July 2015 in an impressive special exhibition in the midst of the historical industrial architecture of the Zollverein World Heritage site. In “Design on Stage”, visitors will experience the current top achievements up close and personal, because this hands-on exhibition expressly encourages visitors to touch and try out the exhibits. In this way, fans of design can find out about the trends in international product design and see for themselves the good quality of the BT Levio P-Series from Toyota Material Handling.

 

About the Red Dot Design Award

In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Design Award breaks down into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. The Red Dot Award was created by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and with around 17,000 entries each year is one of the best-respected design competitions in the world. In 2015, it is celebrating its 60th anniversary: It was in 1955 that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day.

The sought-after award, the “Red Dot”, is the revered international seal of outstanding design quality. Award-winning designers, manufacturers and agencies use the Red Dot winner label and receive numerous other winners’ privileges, such as the presentation of the award-winning product on Red Dot Online, in the Red Dot Design Yearbook, the Red Dot App and on Red Dot 21. Additionally, the winning products are communicated in the international PR activities of Red Dot and exhibited in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen for a whole year. More information is available at their website.
