NEWS – Greentom Wins Red Dot Design Award 2016
The greenest stroller on earth has received the highest distinction possible at the Red Dot Awards: Best of the Best in Product Design 2016.
Manufacturers and designers from 57 countries around the world collectively registered around 5,200 products to be judged at the awards held in Germany. The Greentom stroller impressed with its innovative, high quality design, positioning it as one of the leaders in this international comparison. The ‘Best of the Best’ level of endorsement is awarded to just only 1.5% of all entries in the international competition.
The Greentom stroller is the first green stroller on the planet. Constructed using high quality recycled materials its frame is made using recycled polypropylene (PP) and the fabric is made of recycled soft drink bottles (PET). This makes the Greentom stroller not only highly sustainable, but also light and strong. The Greentom stroller range includes the Greentom Carrycot, Greentom Reversible and Greentom Classic seat options. One frame fits all, from birth to 4 years old.
With 41 experts from all around the world, the Red Dot independent expert panel assesses each entry strictly and fairly, live and on site, according to criteria such as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. The jury awards the highest single distinction ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best’ for ground-breaking design, with only the very best product entered receiving this award. Only the best entries in a category receive this award.
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and president of the Red Dot Award said: “The Best of the Best recipients are recognised for their extraordinary creativity and keen eye for aesthetic. We are delighted to announce Greentom as a winner of the Best of the Best Award for Design for this highly innovative product and look forward to honouring all winners at the formal presentation, to be held in Essen during July.
