Thierry Gadou, Chairman and CEO, concludes: "We are thrilled that our new VUSION line has been recognized with a Red Dot Award. In addition to its technical qualities, which are unanimously lauded by customers, this award acknowledges the esthetic triumph of its design, which allows it to integrate with any product category in any type of store ? a central focus of our R&D work.

About the Red Dot Design Awards
The Red Dot Award: Product Design has roots dating back as far as 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, a jury comprising roughly 40 members assessed the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise. The sought-after Red Dot award has been the revered international seal of outstanding design quality.
