Skagerak

The Danish design company Skagerak has been rewarded two prizes at this year’s internationally acknowledged RED DOT Design Awards. The Vivlio Shelving System won in the category of “Living rooms and Bedrooms” and the Riviera Lounge won the jury’s vote in the category of “Garden furnishing, garden appliances and BBQs”.

Skagerak continues its good streak on the global design scene as it wins yet another two international prizes in different categories at the RED DOT Design Awards. The flexible shelving system Vivlio, created by the design duo Halstrøm-Odgaard, was granted the award in the category of “Living rooms and Bedrooms” and the multifunctional reinterpretation of the classic sunbed, the Riviera Lounge designed by Povl Eskildsen found itself on the top of the podium in the category of “Garden furnishing, garden appliances and BBQs”.

RED DOT is one of the biggest design awards in the world, with participants from 57 countries, 5.200 registered products and innovations and a jury consisting of 42 independent designers, professors and journalists from all over the world.

Besides from the element of aesthetics, all products are evaluated on a basis of a long range of criteria such as the degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. Thus, only products which set themselves apart considerably through their excellent design receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury.

Previous this year, Skagerak has brought home design prizes for their indoor and outdoor products at the German Design Award 2016 and Elle Decoration’s Swedish Design Awards 2016.
