BERND WOLF - Gained at the 2017 Red Dot Design Award!

Leilana bangle honoured for high quality design in the Red Dot Award 

The jury has reached its decision: After several days of assessing thousands of products from all over the world, the Leilana bangle received the distinction “Honourable Mention”. With this bangle, Yvonne and Bernd Wolf have created a particularly well-executed aspect of design work that the expert committee for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 has recognised with the internationally sought-after seal of quality.

BERND WOLF’s new floral Flowertimes design line features vibrantly multifaceted blossom arrangements. The Leilana bracelet displays an open-worked ornamental design composed of subtly shimmering trifoliate flowers, framed by a fine band of sparkling, brilliant-cut zirconia.

Statement by the jury: "The design of the Leilana bangle radiates a vibrant lightness. With its clean lines and high-quality appearance that makes for a winning combination."

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognised that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The award by the critical Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”

The significance of the international design competition, Red Dot Award: Product Design, with its headquarter in Essen, Germany is well established internationally. It was already more than 60 years ago that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. Since then, an expert team has been awarding the seal of quality for good design and innovation to the outstanding designs of the year.

Manufacturers and designers around the globe were also invited to enter their products in the 2017 competition. The jury of around 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Honourable Mention for a well-conceived detail solution, the Red Dot for high design quality and the Red Dot: Best of the Best for groundbreaking design. In total, the competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
