We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Red Dot Product Design Award 2021 for our work on the Vimar Eikon Tactil Thermostat.

Designed for home and hospitality applications, the intuitive user interface of the  Eikon Tactil thermostat allows effortless control of smart home functions such as temperature, lights, and curtains. When a hand approaches, the LEDs and display of the device wake up; a built-in brightness sensor adjusts the light intensity to the surroundings, thus keeping the bedroom dark, for example. The modern, minimalistic look gives it an exclusive feel. Furthermore, the innovative 3D gesture control eliminates the need to touch the unit. Alternatively, it can also be controlled via an app or voice assistant.

The Red Dot Jury states,
”Intuitively comprehensible, elegantly designed, and with various control options: these are the distinctive characteristics that make the Eikon Tactil thermostat stand out.”

For more than 60 years, the Red Dot Award – one of the world’s largest design competitions – has been providing a platform for designers and companies to assess great design. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to products that feature an outstanding design.
