The Solaris collection wins a Red Dot Award

MELJAC has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury has awarded Solaris collection, created in collaboration with Australian designer Marc Newson, the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.

The new range in solid brass, characterised by elegant curves, is aesthetically bold and pleasantly satisfying to the touch. This innovative collection of switches, featuring a sleek design and contrasting finishes, is produced in France. It reflects the winning combination of state-of-the-art technologies and meticulous craftsmanship.

The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success.” 

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot


Evaluation platform for good design

The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.


Exceptional visibility

From 21 June, Solaris collection will be celebrated during the Red Dot Design Week and can be seen in the online exhibition on the Red Dot website.

From 22 June, Solaris will also be included in the exhibition “Design on Stage” in the Red Dot Design Museum (Essen, Germany) where all of the award-winning products are showcased.

In August, the range will be introduced in the Red Dot Design Yearbook 2021/2022. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and trends in product design.
