Iris Powerhub wins Red Dot for high design quality

Kondator has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury has awarded Iris Powerhub the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.

Swap cable chaos for Swedish design
Iris Powerhub is designed for the ever-increasing demands that today’s technology places on access to flexible and portable charging. It provides an efficient solution for cord chaos and the growing need for shared charging stations. With its contemporary design the Iris Powerhub is also a stylish piece of furniture that easily fits in a variety of environments such as offices, co-working spaces, lounges or at home. Plastic and angular shapes have been replaced by a circular design, wrapped in grey or sand-colored felt. Design by Tengbom.

Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec on the laureates
“The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.


Evaluation platform for good design
The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics, and longevity. 


Iris Powerhub in exhibitions, online and in the yearbook
Iris Powerhub can be seen in the online exhibition on the Red Dot website from 21 June 2021. That date also marks the beginning of the Red Dot Design Week, during which this year’s award winners and Kondator will be celebrated online.

From 22 June 2021, Iris Powerhub will also be included in the exhibition “Design on Stage” in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen, where all of the award-winning products are showcased. Visitors to the museum can experience the quality of the designs in a space that features contemporary design solutions and historical industrial architecture. The Red Dot Design Yearbook 2021/2022 comes out in August. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and trends in product design.
