Red Dot, one of the most renowned international product competitions, has awarded the 2011 Red Dot seal of quality to Metropolitan by OWP. Designers and companies from 60 countries entered 4,433 products in the product design category for this year’s Red Dot award. Over 1,000 guests in the design industry, society and media celebrated the winners of this prestigious award.
Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator of the Red Dot design award, says of this honor: “As always, our jury cast a very careful eye over the products submitted. Design quality has asserted itself clearly in the judging process, with genuine and new creative solutions also being rewarded. Both of these criteria are not just yardsticks for good design, but also for the
potential for success on the market. This potential is increased several times over by the targeted use of our renowned design award.”
Our Metropolitan collection evokes urban design with cool, lightweight steel and sleek plastic. Influenced by modern architecture, Metropolitan frames are the new companions for the city spaces in which we live. As the pulse of time beats ever faster, the Metropolitan collection introduces our exclusive Quick Lock technology (patent pending). This new feature allows one-click glazing: elegant yet simple. OWP is always looking for ways to reinvent the world in which we live — this is what motivates us. Metropolitan was created for those who live life to the fullest; who do not need to ask what is beautiful, what is right, or what is high quality: they just know it.
