The Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2017 has attracted 4,724 entries from 54 countries and districts, with 43 being honoured Red Dot: Best of the Best – lower than 1% of the total entries. Just like its founder Professor Peter Zec observes: “Only those few works with exceptional creativity and design quality could win the Red Dot: Best of the Best.
For its in-depth understanding of human nature and exceptional design, Or's tii Table and im Chair stand out from a great many excellent works. Or took the stage to accept the award.
The tii table and im chair
will be showcased at the Red Dot Museum Singapore,
together with hundreds of award-winning works from the globe.
