Ansell Lighting has successfully won an acclaimed Red Dot Design Award for their lighting product, the Orbio360.

The Red Dot Design Award is among the best known design contests in the world. Its independent jury of experts and internationally recognised seal of quality make it one of the most prestigious evaluation processes for good design and innovation.

A statement by the awards jury detailed the winning product as “an innovative solution, the Orbio360 offers multi-functionality, which, in addition to state-of-the-art lighting technology, also incorporates fire safety.”

The origins of the Red Dot Design Award date back to 1955. The institution behind the competition is the Design Zentrum NRW, which is led by Professor Dr. Peter Zec since 1991.

In order to assess the diversity in the field of design in a thorough and professional manner, the award breaks down into three competitions: the “Red Dot Award: Product Design”, “Red Dot Award: Communication Design” and “Red Dot Award: Design Concept” – each is organised once a year.

From products to communication projects and packaging to design concepts and prototypes, the Red Dot Award documents the most prominent trends worldwide. The award-winning designs are exhibited in the Red Dot Design Museums.
