08 Jun QDP wins Red Dot Award for LivePicture GO
The Red Dot Award for good design and innovation is the Champion’s League of industrial design. This year many hundreds of submissions were received from 59 countries. We are very honoured that we’ve won this prestigious award with our design for the LivePicture GO, a product by our partner Mobilane.
We’ve collaborated for years with Mobilane, who supply innovative low-maintenance greenery systems for offices and more. We produce the frames for several varieties of their LivePictures, a marriage between art and wall-mounted greenery. Per Mobilane’s request, we’ve designed a smaller version: the LivePicture GO. We have jointly taken this smaller version into production and it is successfully marketed by Mobilane for various applications including home interior.
LivePicture GO is 100% plastic-based. In its design, we’ve paid special attention to the high-gloss frame. To prevent the use of lacquer – due to the associated costly additional production steps and to promote environmental friendliness of the product – we’ve opted for injection mould-based production with special and extremely scratch-resistant moulds. The result is an extremely smooth and glossy frame. Combined with the innovative watering system for the plants living in the LivePicture GO, this proved an important reason for the jury to award LivePicture GO first place in the garden appliances and garden tools category.
Hall of fame
The Red Dot Award ceremony will take place on 9 July in Essen, Germany. As an award winner, the LivePicture GO is automatically granted a spot in the Red Dot Design Museum; the largest continuous exposition of leading contemporary design in the world. This underlines once more the extraordinary qualities of our QDP design team.
