08 May T-XTREME wins the RED DOT 2023 award for best product design
Our new solution for tunnels and underpasses, T-XTREME, has received the prestigious 2023 Red Dot Design Award in the Urban Product Design category. This award, one of the most prestigious of its kind in the world, recognises excellence in quality and design.
T-XTREME, which was entirely designed by Carandini’s team of engineers in Barcelona, is a projector for tunnels and underpasses that helps optimise the performance and security of underground infrastructure, as well as dealing with the lighting challenges found in these types of spaces.
The jury, made up of 43 design experts from around the world, highlighted the projector’s superb quality, sturdiness, durability and innovative and sustainable nature. Its ability to offer new solutions and responses to user needs was another feature the jury pointed to.
“We’re proud that our project has been named one of the best product designs of the year. This prize recognises the work and dedication that the entire technical team at Carandini puts in on a daily basis,” stated Germán Navarro, Carandini’s general manager.
Xavi Travería, the company’s technical and R&D manager, underscored “the efforts of the entire team.” “We were able to design the best lighting solution for tunnels on the market,” he added.
The award ceremony will be held at a special gala on 19 June 2023 in Essen, Germany. The designers Elías Almansa and Technical Manager Ibán Solá will be there to receive the award.
The T-XTREME solution will also be featured in the 2023/2024 Red Dot Design Yearbook, as well as in a video at the Red Dot Design Museum.
The list of winners will be posted on the Red Dot website on 19 June 2023, the same day as the award ceremony.
