Novo Wins Red Dot Product Design Award

The prestigious award is an internationally recognized seal of quality


Cypress, CA | April 3, 2017 - SitOnIt Seating®’s award-winning Novo chair has just won the 2017 Red Dot Product Design award, an internationally recognized seal of quality. This year, Red Dot received more than 5,500 submissions from 54 countries. All recipients are carefully evaluated based on scores for overall innovation, quality and functionality.

A success for SitOnIt Seating from its inception last spring, the Novo is a modern designer's dream, combining endlessly customizable features with award-winning design. Clean lines and subtly rounded corners put a contemporary twist on a classic silhouette, making the Novo versatile by design. And with 12 mesh colors, a myriad of color options for the frame, arm and lumbar support, as well as 13 lumbar accent shades to choose from, the configuration choices are limitless.

About Red Dot

Sponsored by The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, the Red Dot Design Award was established in 1955 and is one of the largest and most prestigious design awards in the world. The juror panel is made up of 40 highly regarded independent designers, university design professors and specialized journalists from all around the world. This prestigious group collectively considers and evaluates each product submitted through careful testing and assessment. 

“The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognized 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” says founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award Professor Dr. Peter Zec.The winners will convene in Essen, Germany at the Red Dot headquarters in July to receive their trophies and certificates during the Red Dot awards ceremony and gala. In addition, the winning products will also be showcased in the Red Dot Design Yearbook as well as in a special exhibition entitled “Design on Stage,” the world’s largest exhibition of contemporary design.
