The Red Dot Award is the most important award in the world of design. Cerrad was also in the circle of winners. The Ceppo Nuovo gres tile collection from the Cerrad x La Mania Home concept captivated the jurors and was honored in the Product Design category. On June 20th, the winners celebrated their accomplishments during the Red Dot Gala and the Designers Night.
The Red Dot Design Awards, presented by Design Zentrum in Essen, are called the Oscars of Design and were first presented in 1955. This year, a total of 4,433 products and innovations from 60 countries around the world were submitted just into the Product Design category. They were all judged by a professional jury comprised of 48 independent jurors.
The gala was held in Essen, Germany. The stunning atmosphere of the event was emphasized by the red carpets and the breathtaking architecture of the Aalto Theater interior. Designers Night was the culmination of the event, as the guests gathered in the museum of contemporary design – Red Dot Design Museum (in the former Zollverein mine building, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List), so they could admire the awarded products.
– The Red Dot Gala is a unique event. I’m glad that we were able to travel to Essen to represent the Cerrad Group – comments Tomasz Glegoła, Marketing Director of Cerrad. – It’s a true celebration of international designs – he adds.
The award-winning collection of Cerrad tiles – Ceppo Nuovo, was created through the collaboration between the Cerrad and La Mania Home brands. Joanna Przetakiewicz became the ambassador of the project. It’s a collection straight from Milan that faithfully reflects the elegance of Italian bedrock. It’s available in three colors: silver, graphite and black, it comes in several formats and two surface finishes: polished and matte. Among the formats – 120 x 280 cm and 6 mm thick slabs. The winning gres tiles are now available for purchase.
– We’re extremely proud that we won this special award in one of the largest and most important design competitions in the world – comments Paweł Smolarek, Chief Product Officer at Cerrad. – This award is the result of all the hard work that was put into this project by the entire team and it’s a recognition of our designs – he adds.
