Awning specialist markilux has won the "Red Dot Design Award" for the successful design of its new cassette awning "MX-4".

"MX-4" from markilux receives "Red Dot Design Award"

The "MX-4" is the latest designer model from markilux. Not long on the market, the attractive cassette awning is already the proud winner of the "Red Dot Design Award" 2023. The award is one of the major international design competitions. The awning specialist has received this award, along with many other prizes, in the "Product Design" category a number of times.

Products from markilux can be described as attractive, intelligent and smart. In recent years, the awning expert has been able to score points time and again, especially with its stylish MX family. Not just with end users, but also with a range of design award juries. This time it was the turn of the latest model, the cassette awning "MX-4", to impress the high-calibre jury of the "Red Dot Design Award" in the category "Product Design", earning it the coveted award.

Award affirms creative approach

"We were absolutely delighted to receive this award, as the award, based in Essen, Germany, is one of the world's largest and most famous competitions. It has a decades-long tradition and only awards prizes for the very best designs," says Michael Gerling, Director of R&D and Production. The company has already received the award several times for a number of its awnings. Every time they receive the award it is a great success for the entire development team and confirms the company's creative concept. "Particularly when you think that around 20,000 design concepts are submitted to the competition every year," says Mr Gerling. In 2023 alone, designers and companies from 60 countries took part in 51 categories in the "Product Design" discipline.

Design quality convinced the jury

"Naturally we wanted to be at the front of the field with the 'MX-4'," says Mr Gerling. After all, they felt that the overall package of simple, elegant form, separate LED lights in the design of the awning and smart lighting technology with great colour effects had a winning quality - something which has been confirmed with the award. The product impressed the international jury of experts in the crucial criteria: functionality, attractiveness, practical value and responsibility towards people and the environment. Michael Gerling is convinced that good design is an essential expression of the brand's value and intends to pursue this successful course. Now, they are looking forward to the award ceremony during "Designers Night" on 19 June. That is when Michael Gerling and Sven Kröner, Head of the Department of Development and Construction, will be receiving the award in the "Red Dot Design Museum".
