Green­ville wins red dot design award!

The innov­at­ive power of Green­ville impressed the 37-mem­ber jury of experts for the “red dot award: product design 2013”. Those who suc­ceed in win­ning over the renowned experts in the field can dec­or­ate their product cre­ation with the “red dot” and pos­i­tion them­selves at an inter­na­tion­al level. The jury mem­bers were delighted to receive 4,662 entries in 19 dif­fer­ent cat­egor­ies in this year’s com­pet­i­tion. Only the best designs were able to win the enthu­si­asm of the jury, which is how Green­ville received the red dot for its suc­cess­ful design cre­ation.

Green­ville Rope Play Houses invite to play inside the spa­tial net, which fur­thers strength, prudence and the abil­ity to con­cen­trate. For the new product line the spa­tial net’s well proven qual­it­ies have been com­bined with those of a play house. Here the chil­dren can explore life in a pro­tec­ted and safe way. Still, the Green­ville Play House leaves room for children’s play­ful inter­pret­a­tion, so that they may see it, depend­ing on the mood, as a house or a space­ship, a barn or an air­plane, a castle or a cave.

The clas­sic­al out­er frames have been car­ried a step fur­ther. The geo­met­ric­ally straight-line role mod­els have been taken up and inter­preted in a fresh, organ­ic way. The house’s shape is made up of diverse bam­boo pan­els with incor­por­ated win­dow and door ele­ments, as well as the frame of stain­less steel and alu­min­um balls.

Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, ini­ti­at­or and CEO of the red dot, has poin­ted out that strong design com­pet­ence and eco­nom­ic suc­cess nowadays go hand in hand: “The win­ners of the ‘red dot award: product design 2013’ are the prot­ag­on­ists of a highly developed design cul­ture and design industry. These days it is becom­ing more and more dif­fi­cult to dis­tin­guish between well-designed products. It is often only in the details that the spe­cial qual­it­ies become appar­ent. How­ever, those product cre­ations that pass the test before the crit­ic­al eyes of the inter­na­tion­al red dot jury will not dis­ap­pear into the crowd and will be able to fend off glob­al com­pet­i­tion.”
