Two Logitech Products Honoured with International Red Dot Design Award
Logitech Cube and Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 Named Recipients
AUCKLAND, New Zealand – April 18th, 2012 – Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), a world leader in computer peripherals, today announced that the Logitech® Cube and the Logitech® Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 were honored by the 2012 red dot design awards for outstanding design quality.
More than 1,800 manufacturers worldwide submitted more than 4,500 products to the red dot jury for this year’s awards, and Logitech was named a winner once again. Since 2006, Logitech has received a total of 11 red dot design awards for outstanding design quality across several product lines.
This year’s Logitech winners excel in design and innovation. The Logitech Cube helps redefine the computer mouse with a shape that fits in the palm of the user’s hand and is small enough for a coat pocket. When used as a mouse, Logitech Cube scrolls when a finger is swiped along the main panel. Lift the Logitech Cube in the air and a moment later it’s in presenter mode. The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 is notable for its minimal ecological footprint. Using built-in solar panels, the keyboard charges with any light – indoors or out – rendering the need for replacing batteries a thing of the past. With a sleek and comfortable design it has the form, function and innovation that red dot looks for in its award recipients.
“It’s a great honor for two of our products to receive this prestigious award,” said Annabelle Woods General Manager of Logitech Australia. “We spend a great deal of time designing and testing each product to ensure we’re delivering outstanding design quality and innovation to our customers. The red dot design award affirms this effort, and we are excited to be recognised.”
The official presentation of the red dot awards will take place July 2, 2012, at the Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany. The winning products will also be on display at a special exhibition at the red dot design museum in Essen July 2, 2012 – June 30, 2013.
