Avalanche backpack by Vaude received Red Dot Design Award 2015
German outdoor label Vaude received one of this year's Red Dot Design Awards 2015 for the avalanche backpack 'ABScond Flow' with ABS Twinbag technology. The equipment for ski tours, freeriding, mountaineering was chosen by a 38-members jury after criteria like visual impression of the design and its functionality, environmental compatibility, etc. Already in 2013, Vaude's carbon neutral produced alpine backpack 'Bulin30' was honored with a Red Dot Design Award which counts to the most prestigious awards in the sporting goods and lifestyle industry. Product designer of both - Bulin and the ABScond, is Philipp Ziegler.
The official award ceremony will be held on 29 June 2015. Currently, the winning products 2015 aren't published on the organization's website on red-dot.org where prize winning designs can be tracked back until the mid-90ies. The Red Dot Design Award was founded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and has own museums (in Essen, Singapore and Taipei) where honored products are on view. The Red Dot Design Award 2015 winners will be exhibited for the duration of one year at the Red Dot Design Museum Essen.
