Visionect’s Epaper Digital Door Signs Win Red Dot Industrial Design Award


The little E Ink meeting room signs marketed by Slovenia’s Visionect are among the winners of a big industrial design award competition, called Red Dot.

Visionect’s Joan Meeting Room Assistant won in the Product Design category of the awards. The competition attracted almost 5,200 entries this year, from 57 countries, and a look through the winners has everything from global brands to start-ups, doing industrial design for everything from cars to umbrella-holders.

The jury of 41 design professionals, says Visionect, selected Joan due to its superb minimalism, ease of use and innovative epaper technology, and stated that “with its intelligent technology and a versatile appearance, Joan Meeting Room Assistant meets the needs of a digitally-dominated world of work.”

“Joan’s Red Dot Award is proof of dedicated teamwork. It’s a proud moment for us,” says Matej Zalar, CEO of Visionect. “Our efforts to develop an intelligent and easy to use solution for a modern workplace have been recognized and it’s a wonderful feeling.”

The awards were handed out earlier this week at a gala in Essen, Germany.
