Klöber receives the coveted Red Dot award for Connex2 and the compact WOOOM shell chair.
Red Dot is the accolade for high-quality design, having become internationally established as one of the most coveted quality marks and tracker of stand-out global trends. This year Klöber received not one but two awards for its innovative workplace products: a Red Dot award went to the Connex2 office swivel chair, and another Red Dot for the WOOOM compact shell chair.
A jury consisting of independent creative artists, design professors and specialist journalists evaluates a new set of entries each year across 49 categories, according to the principle “In search of good design and innovation”. This international committee only awards the coveted prize to products deemed exceptional in design. Connex2 and the compact WOOOM shell chair from Klöber won favour with the jury.
Both models were created by Jörg Bernauer, resident designer at Klöber since 2008. The Connex2 swivel chair won the Red Dot for its mesh-back variant. Beneath the 3D mesh covering there’s an innovative skeleton frame to provide flexibility and at the same time support. The Lordomat is an integral part of this structure, and actively follows every movement.
The Red Dot is a new addition to the portfolio of design awards received by the Connex2 product family: the Connex2 chair with upholstered backrest won the if Design Award and the German Design Award back in 2018.
The WOOOM compact shell chair stands for sustainable, modern communication, and embodies the homely aspect of sitting. It’s made of recycled polyester and reclaimed PET bottles, and is 100% recyclable. Maximum quality, minimum eco footprint – it’s all possible with the little WOOOM. Slender proportions add to its appeal, along with high-end technology. Using this resource-friendly material allows the chair to have an elegant, cantilever structure.
Receiving the Red Dot award in the Product Design category is the crowning glory in terms of product design accomplishment for the Connex2 office chair and the WOOOM compact shell chair.
