German company IST Metz has won a Red Dot Award for the design of its X-Press-U packaging concept.

The UV specialist and system manufacturer beat out over 8000 other entries from all over the world, impressing the international jury with its ‘high design quality and creative accomplishment.’ 

‘For around 65 years, the Red Dot Award as one of the world’s largest design competitions has been providing a platform for designers, agencies and companies to evaluate good design,’ said founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award Peter Zec. ‘I want to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their distinction, which both bears testimony to their convincing performance and highlights their quality and design leadership. Anyone who succeeds in such a strong and international bunch of competitors deserves to be proud of themselves and of their achievements.’

IST Metz will accept its award in November, in front of 1400 people in Berlin.
