The Red Dot Design Awards are divided into three categories: product design, communication design and design concept. Manufacturers and designers from 54 countries entered their products in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 category. An independent expert panel assessed each entry based on criteria including innovation, quality, functionality and ecological compatibility.
Organised by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen at Essen in Germany, the ‘Red Dot’ is a sought-after internationally recognised seal of outstanding design quality.
BergHOFF’s winning products were all designed in-house by Pieter Roex and Kenneth Willaerts at the company’s international headquarters in Belgium.
The four products are:

Product highlights include a full disc base for superior heat distribution on all hobs, durable non-stick, and an easy-click handle which can be removed and replaced with one hand for transferring from the hob to the oven.
