Award for high design quality: Mr Maria receives Red Dot
Mr Maria’s smallest and newest family member, Miffy First Light, won a Red Dot award for high design quality. This internationally recognised seal of quality is a wonderful cherry on top of all the hard work of the Mr Maria team
A brand-new product: Miffy First Light
The design Miffy First Light only joined the Mr Maria family in October 2017 and already she has brought the world so much joy. The brand’s well known existing Miffy lamp design had to be carefully adapted to suit the new material choice of high quality soft silicone. Additionally a new light source was developed to ensure wireless use and USB charging, all characteristics to make the design a safe, convenient and durable companion for life. Mr Maria is honoured and excited that their care for the details of this design is noticed and appreciated by a panel of experts as well as by the public.
Platform for good design
Since 1955 the Red Dot Award: Product Design has been celebrating design, honouring their motto of being “in search of good design and innovation”. This year, a jury of roughly 40 members assessed each admission individually judging by qualities such as innovation, functionality, formal quality and durability. In 2018, designers from 59 countries submitted more than 6300 objects to the competition leading to Mr Maria receiving the Red Dot distinction for high design quality.
At the Red Dot Gala on the 9th of July 2018 all winners will come together to receive their certificates and to launch the display “Design on Stage” featuring all winning innovations as part of the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design. On the same day of celebrations The Red Dot Design Yearbook 2018/2019 will be published showcasing the winning products to become part of history.
