Haier sweeps the board at international awards for outstanding product design
05-04 2015

Haier, the world’s number one Major Appliances brand for six consecutive years*, has been recognised for its superior product design with multiple Red Dot Awards and iF Product Design Awards. These internationally-recognised awards further bolster Haier’s reputation for excellent design quality.

 

The Red Dot Award is an internationally recognised quality seal that recognises the finest achievements in international product design. The largest design competition in the world, the Red Dot Product Design Award recognises excellence in products for their degree of innovation, quality of functionality, ergonomics, and durability, among other factors.

Among the impressive line-up of Haier products selected by the panel of judges at this year’s awards is Haier’s futuristic ‘Smart Windows’ Side-by-Side refrigerator, which has many practical design features such as automated humidity control, 5 storage areas, Wi-Fi connection and a translucent glass panel in the door that becomes opaque or transparent depending on your needs.

The judges at the iF product design awards were similarly impressed with the consistent high quality and calibre of Haier’s product designs, selecting the brand for eight individual awards. Every year the iF awards attract more than 2,000 product entries from around 37 nations, with the best of them receiving an iF seal of outstanding design quality.
