Studio F. A. Porsche has been named the 2021 Red Dot: Design Team of the Year. The honorary title was bestowed during the Red Dot Design Week last month.
Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche always maintained, 'Good design must be honest.' He created the legendary Porsche 911 and founded the design studio in 1972. The studio's current managing director, Roland Heiler, and his team adhere to his philosophy to this day. Using authentic materials, they design well-thought-out, functional and durable products with a puristic aesthetic. In the last five years alone, Studio F. A. Porsche has received eight 'Best of the Best' in the Red Dot Product Design Award.
"The aesthetic restraint and the extreme functionality of the products created by Studio F. A. Porsche are unique," commented Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Design Award. "For a studio to keep breaking new ground, but at the same time deliver outstanding results, is extraordinary. My heartfelt congratulations to Roland Heiler and his team on their pioneering work."
"We are thrilled to receive this award, because the members of the team behind the many Red Dot awards won over recent years are being recognised personally for their work," Heiler stated. "The fact that one can't apply for this award makes it authentic and particularly significant for our team and, ultimately, also for our customers."
