Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 for the HST-Sky Innoview FAKRO terrace door

The HST-Sky large-sized door received a prestigious distinction for design and innovation in the competition Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019.

The HST-Sky Innoview lift and slide doors by FAKRO are a unique product available on the market that features special design allowing the pane of the fixed sash to be fitted directly into the frame and threshold. This design opens a new look at the space
inside and outside home. The HST-Sky gives a much larger glazed area, thus increasing the field of view and the boundary between the interior and the surrounding environment disappears. The HST-Sky doors combine the highest quality wood with aluminium cladding. Doors create one design line with other products available in the INNOVIEW range: garage doors, entrance doors and awning blinds.

The Red Dot Award has been granted for more than 60 years in Germany for design and product innovation. This is one of the most important awards in the field of design in the world. The jury, consisting of experts from all over the world, chooses the winners following
the motto “in search of good design and innovation.” Their evaluation takes into account such criteria as the level of innovation, functionality, quality, durability and ergonomics.

“We find another Red Dot Award granted to FAKRO products as a great success and at the same time a confirmation that our strategy of investing in innovation and design is right. FAKRO is the author of over 170 patent applications which makes us one of the most innovative companies in the industry,” commented by Sławomir Gawlik, FAKRO Group Marketing Director.

The awards ceremony of this year’s edition of Red Dot Award will take place on 8 July at the Aalto-Essen Theatre. All award-winning products will be certified and shown during the post-competition exhibition "Design on Stage" at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen. The exhibition will last until 11 August 2019. Starting on this date, the HST-Sky door will also be presented in the Red Dot Design catalogue, online and in the Red Dot Design application.
