As one of the largest design competitions offering the most sought-after seals of quality for good design, the Red Dot Award has aimed to appraise diversity in the field of design for more than 60 years, towards the businesses that distinguish their activities through appealing and conceptual ideas.
9T Labs shares this award in large with its design partner in development of the Red Series, Meyer-Hayoz Design Engineering AG, which, without its design team’s expertise, this award would not have been possible to achieve.
Its CEO, Wolfgang Meyer-Hayoz, an internationally renowned designer, said: “We are delighted the ideas that went into the design of the Red Series have been recognised for their significant impact in the global market space. We congratulate 9T Labs on this great accomplishment and look forward to its future projects.”
The Red Series certifies itself as a standout in aesthetic design, while delivering prolific innovation for advanced composites in the field of additive manufacturing; creating continuous fibre reinforced polymer components that weigh up to 80% less than traditional metal parts while increasing product strength significantly.
Since coming third in the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Award in 2021, the high reproducibility of manufacturing, as well as the quality of production, showcases 9T Labs as a company with strong aspirations for growth and product application. In the same year, the company was awarded the Solar Impulse Foundation Efficient Solution Label as a credible trademark of quality and for its economic commitment to product profitability. Now 9T Labs is recognised around the world with its latest acclamation from Red Dot Awards.
“This is an amazing achievement for the designers and technologists involved with the Red Series and acknowledges the hard work of everyone at 9T Labs,” says Yannick Willemin, Head of Marketing and Business Development. “We are thankful for the partnership with Meyer-Hayoz Design Engineering and gratefully accept the Red Dot Design Award as a sign of our commitment for pioneering Innovation moving forward.”
As winners of the Red Dot Design Award 2022, 9T Labs has gained global recognition and will benefit from a variety of valuable industry contacts from international designers, manufacturers, and potential customers. With global visibility for its practices in additive fusion for advanced composites, Red Dot has positioned 9T Labs in the market with an enhanced image, one to celebrate with pride.
