Red Dot Design Awards

The red dot design award


    We believe that innovative, quality, future-
    focused design should also be affordable. We call it Democratic Design, and it has led to several Red Dot Design Awards over the years.

    When you take home one of these products, you’re not just taking home a useful item,
    but an international award winner!

  • Red Dot Award is one of the most respected international design competitions in the world and organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. The award was founded in 1955 and receives more than 17,000 submissions each year. The prize is divided into three categories: product design, communication design and design concept.

LISABO series

Three coffee tables in ash veneer with solid birch legs. One large and two smaller that fits underneath.


Made of ash veneer, the six elegant tables which make up the LISABO series have been recognised by the Red Dot jury for ‘rewriting the rules of space, as well as design, sustainability and even time.’

“When we designed LISABO we wanted to make a group of extremely practical tables that combine the best of modern construction and timeless design. We like to think of a LISABO table as an antelope
hopping from room to room.”
