The Red Dot jury has made its decision: After all of the products submitted were tested and assessed individually in the course of an evaluation process spanning several days, The TUNDRA®, manufactured by HEXADRONE™ and designed by the industrial designer Raphael Chèze, received the distinction “Red Dot”. The panel of experts awards the internationally recognised seal of quality only to products that win them over with their high design quality.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design has roots dating back as far as 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects to the competition. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, a jury comprising roughly 40 members assessed the products individually based on the original. The strict judging criteria, which include level of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics and durability, provide a frame of reference which the jurors then complement with their own expertise.
“I want to congratulate the award winners sincerely on their wonderful success in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018. Success in the competition is proof of the good design quality of the products and once again shows that companies are on the right path. When I speak about good design, I am referring to more than just an attractive product. All of the products are characterised by outstanding functionality. This demonstrates that the designers have understood their clients and their needs”, said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award.
The CEO, Alexandre Labesse, a professional of film making, used to devise and build his own drones to meet the needs of his passion. At that time, they were only fifty in the whole country to evolve in this field. Foreseeing the potential of this market, Alexandre decided to create HEXADRONE , a company focusing in the development of UAV as well as mechatronic solutions.
After two years of research and development, HEXADRONE™ beneficiated from a rapid growth and is happy to introduce its new concept drone; the TUNDRA a highly scalable drone capable to adapt and fit any professional need.
