The red dot design award is a highly-coveted product design prize awarded by an international team of judges.
With more than 11,000 submissions from 61 countries, the international “red dot design award” is the largest and most renowned design competition in the world. The aim of the prize is to honor outstanding design quality and trendsetters. This is the same award given to Apple’s iphone design team.
Vorwerk’s Thermomix TM31 won this award in 2005.
from the reddot design award website:
“The Thermomix TM 31 is a universal kitchen appliance. It combines mixing, mincing, grinding, kneading, weighing, cooking and steam cooking functions in one device. The design concept is based on a compact, closed structure and has a modern language of forms. The operating display and the mixing container are the user interfaces and as such central to the design. The design of the different functions is ergonomic as well as practical. Thanks to the efficient arrangement of the operating elements the numerous functions and the use of the appliance are largely self-explanatory. Due to its form and the choice of materials the appliance is low-maintenance and easy to clean.”
Thermomix TM31 joins other reddot design prize winners in a place of prominence at the Reddot Design Museum, which has been celebrating highest design standards for over 50 years. Previous winners of the reddot design award include such notables as Apple, Mercedes-Benz, Bose, BMW, and LG, to name a few.
Thermomix TM31 was developed by a team of 120 engineers and 800 advisors. First conceived in 1970 it has been evolving and improving ever since. It is built to exacting and uncompromising standards for efficiency, ergonomics, and environmental considerations.
