“The Monolith is infused with personality,” said the jury. “We were very impressed by the careful and quality craftsmanship that goes into making each product.”

The Red Dot Design Award can look back on a more than 60-year history: 1955 was the first time a jury came together to evaluate the best designs of the time. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO, Professor Dr Peter Zec, came up with the name and brand for the award. The coveted “Red Dot” award has since become the highly regarded seal for outstanding design quality that is recognised worldwide. 

The Monolith won a distinction in the Product Design category.

With around 20,000 entries per year, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the biggest design competitions in the world. In order to reach a professional verdict given the diversity of the design sector, the competition is divided into three disciplines:

In 2023, products were submitted and evaluated in 51 competition categories. A jury of 43 members came together to do so. They reached their verdict on which of the product design entries met the criteria for a Red Dot award on the basis of the four principles of good design and by taking into account their socio-cultural character, specific technical focus area and design expertise.
