LUNAR wins two 2016 Red Dot: Best of the Best Awards

We’re thrilled to announce LUNAR has won 2016 Red Dot: Best of the Best Design Awards for Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Wireless system and the Belle-V Bottle Opener. This highest distinction in the international competition goes to only 1.5% of all entries.

The first-ever wireless portable conferencing system

Audio expert Sennheiser is setting new standards with the launch of its TeamConnect Wireless, the first-ever wireless portable conferencing system for up to 24 people.

TeamConnect Wireless enables anyone to set up a conference effortlessly—anytime and anywhere—with excellent sound quality. The system boots autonomously in seconds, supports multiple simultaneous audio channels, and is the first system on the market that allows additional participants to join an ongoing conference simply by connecting additional devices.

LUNAR Europe collaborated with Sennheiser and their acoustic engineers at every stage of the design and development process. From user research, strategic product definition and usability testing through industrial and UX design, LUNAR helped frame and develop the product concept through an iterative process of design, testing, and evaluation.

Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Wireless brings an end to the age of conference call frustrations—delivering unmatched ease of use and excellent sound quality in a portable and intensely iconic design.

A beautiful bottle opener

Ever since their invention in 1892, bottle openers have served a simple, but essential function. Yet, bottle openers have often been so visually uninteresting that we’re barely aware of them and certainly have rarely admired them for their functionality or aesthetics. Most are also uncomfortable to use and not ergonomic.

LUNAR was challenged to craft a beautiful bottle opener whose design would create an emotional connection with the user, while quickly and easily removing bottle caps.

Using a combination of effective ergonomics, simple design expression, sturdy construction, and sustainability principles, LUNAR created the Belle-V Bottle Opener—elevating an ordinary household tool into a delightful user experience and a crafted, desirable heirloom.

One of the largest competitions in the world

Organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany, Red Dot has recognized the best in product design, concept design and communication design for the past 60 years. With more than 17,000 entries in 2015 alone, it is one of the largest competitions in the world.

We’ll officially accept this great honor at The Red Dot Gala in the Aalto-Theater in Essen on July 4. This final celebratory highlight will mark the close of the competition.

We congratulate the LUNAR teams responsible for this great work and are proud to share these awards with our fantastic clients!
