Four distinctions for Hager Dream

Hager Dream: an example of award winning design and international cooperation

This new wiring accessories product range called Hager Dream, designed by Erwin van Handenhoven & his team and developed at Huizhou in China for China, has received the Winner Label for excellent product design in the category Building and Elements from The German Design Award for 2018, the Good Design® Award for 2017, this year’s iF Design Award in the Building Technology category as well as the Red Dot Award for Product Design. 

It was no doubt the remarkable features that won over the jury members for these two Awards. Hager Dream is a full range of switches, sockets and other functions with flush-mounted mechanisms and a full-face frameless cover. Frameless design marks the new direction of offering impeccable design with maximum switch space for a pleasing user experience and a low profile white LED indicator at its base discreetly signals its location.

The German Design Award: this award is the top international prize from the German Design Council. Its ambition is to discover, present and honour unique design trends. As such, it is one of the most well-respected design competitions in the world and is held in high regard in and beyond professional circles. The Jury stated that, “...this superb system features a minimalist design that completely avoids the use of frames and thus looks even more minimalist.”

The Good Design® Award: this award is presented by the Chicago Athenaeum for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. The Good Design® Awards create awareness about contemporary design and honour both products and industry leaders in design and manufacturing that have chartered new directions for innovation.

The iF Design Award: Every year, iF International Forum Design GmbH organises one of the world's most celebrated and valued design competitions, the iF DESIGN AWARD. A symbol of design excellence around the world, it is one of the oldest and most recognised awards worldwide in the field of design excellence. 

The Red Dot Award for Product Design is one of the most renowned evaluation processes for good design and innovation. With submissions from 59 countries, all of the 6.300 products entered are assessed individually by an independent and international jury of about 40 experts.
