This year’s title of honour “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” goes to Phoenix Design with its teams in Stuttgart, Munich and Shanghai. Founded in 1987 by Andreas Haug and Tom Schönherr, the interdisciplinary team with its international gearing has been especially convincing with its consistently innovative, top-notch design achievements. On 9 July 2018, the Phoenix Design Team will be officially awarded the title at the Red Dot Gala and will receive the “Radius” trophy on stage at Essen’s Aalto-Theater.
Since its founding, the Phoenix Design Team has won roughly 200 distinctions in the Red Dot Award: Product Design, including 13 Red Dot: Best of the Best awards, which is the highest in the competition. In the past five years alone, the design studio was the recipient of 41 Red Dots and three Red Dot: Best of the Best distinctions. For its consistently top-class achievements and the impetus it creates, the Phoenix Design Team will now be awarded the title of “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2018”.
