CEECOACH wins Red Dot Design Award

  • CEECOACH wins 2015 Red Dot Award for Product Design in the “Communication” category
  • The international Red Dot jury praises CEECOACH for high-quality design

 

After its successful launch in December 2014, CEECOACH has now scored another success: The group communication system won the Red Dot Design Award, an important product design award, in the “Communication” category in March. The system was developed by peiker, a specialized communication company based in Friedrichsdorf.

Just under 2,000 participants from 56 countries entered almost 5,000 products in the contest, the world’s largest and most international product competition, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. The international jury, which is composed of designers, design professors, and trade journalists, selected CEECOACH as one of the winners.

The communication system is based on Bluetooth® technology, which delivers a secure, stable connection independent of a cell phone or smartphone. Groups of two to six athletes can use CEECOACH to communicate with each other over distances of as much as 500 meters. The units are lightweight and rugged, plus they are resistant to being splashed or sprayed with water and to dust, heat, and cold conditions. The batteries have a long run time of ten hours. This makes the system especially suitable for outdoor sports like horseback riding, skiing, cycling, or climbing.

The Red Dot jury has special praise for the high quality of the system’s design. peiker focused especially on making sure CEECOACH would be user-friendly, making it simple and intuitive to use. Just three buttons cover all of the device’s functions, and the buttons are large, so handling the system is easy even with gloves on. The user doesn’t even have to look at the unit to operate it.

“Winning the Red Dot Design Award shows that we can hold our own among the best in our industry internationally. We’re very proud of that,” says Jeroen-Bart Brinkman, head of the Non-Automotive department at peiker and the person responsible for the CEECOACH product.
