According to Red Dot organizers, the Fiskars design team has been recognized by the jury of judges for its product design innovations for gardening, cooking and crafting enthusiasts. The team’s natural approach, functionality, ergonomics and balance between complexity and simplicity have garnered the design team the Red Dot Award: Product Design wins over the years.
“It was 30 years ago that Fiskars won its first distinction in the Red Dot Award: Product Design. Ever since the company’s products have been winning over not just our jury but also myself. The design team’s creations are characterized by their ergonomic and user-friendly nature. The technological innovations and groundbreaking combinations of materials together with the understated matter-of-factness make these products really quite special. I want to congratulate the title winners very sincerely on this extraordinary design achievement,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award.
