On 04 July 2016, the international design scene came together in Essen, Germany. In the spring, a panel of 41 judges had presented the coveted Red Dot Label for good design to the best products of the year. The time had now come to honour the victorious items and their creators. As winner of the coveted award for four of its products, the Adam Hall Group joined the celebrations and accepted its trophies on the impressive stage in the Aalto Theatre. The award ceremony was hosted by Prof. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot. Following the awards, 1,800 guests danced and networked at the Designers’ Night in the Red Dot Design Museum – in the midst of the award-winning designs.
Judges’ statements about the award-winning Adam Hall Group products:
LD Systems® CURV® 500, portable array sound system: “The array system is easily adjustable and, with regard to workmanship and sound, conveys a high-grade impression.”
LD Systems® VIBZ, audio mixer series: “The easy to operate audio mixers are characterised by a well-organised appearance and score with a high technical performance.”
