SKAN has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury has awarded skanfog® spectra the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.
SKAN, pioneer company in the field of isolators and cleanroom equipment, has received the Red Dot Award for their skanfog® spectra sterility isolator. This isolator is characterised in the area of aseptic/toxic filling by fast decontamination cycles, smooth material transfer and process reliability for people and products. The skanfog® technology of micro-nebulization of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) not only simplifies and accelerates the decontamination process, but also its validation. The puristic design, conceived for smooth surfaces, is based on the hygiene requirements of pharmaceutical production. The modular system allows the isolator to be adapted to the different needs of the customer and to the surrounding area. Ergonomic design and the integration of peripheral devices, such as the wireless glove testing devices, enable effective and efficient machine operation.
Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec on the laureates
“The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.
SKAN CEO about the Award
“We are very proud to have won the Red Dot Award for high design quality. We are constantly working to improve our products, wherever possible, together with our customers, in order to offer them the best possible solution for their requirements. It’s nice that the SKAN quality is also reflected in the design. I would like to thank the jury and everyone involved at SKAN, whose hard work made this recognition possible.”
Evaluation platform for good design
The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.

skanfog® spectra can be seen in the online exhibition on the Red Dot website from 21 June 2021. That date also marks the beginning of the Red Dot Design Week, during which this year’s award winners and SKAN will be celebrated online.
From 22 June 2021, skanfog® spectra will also be represented at the exhibition “Design on Stage” in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen. Visitors to the museum can experience the quality of the designs in a space that features contemporary design solutions and historical industrial architecture. The Red Dot Design Yearbook 2021/2022 comes out in August. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and trends in product design.
About the Red Dot Design Award:
In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Design Award breaks down into the three disciplines of Red Dot Award: Product Design, Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design and Red Dot Award: Design Concept. With more than 18,000 entries, the Red Dot Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 1955, a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. In the 1990s, Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec developed the name and brand of the award. Ever since, the sought-after distinction “Red Dot” has been the revered international seal of outstanding design quality. The award winners are presented in the yearbooks, museums and online.
