Frederic Beuvry, SVP of Industrial Design and Ergonomics at Schneider Electric said:

Our intuitive design creates an environment that builds a connection with our products and solutions and enables them to achieve their maximum potential. Through our unique design process, we build end-to-end experiences that are truly valuable to our customers and inspire them to contribute to sustainable living and reshape their business with our innovative and efficient solutions."

Three Red Dot design awards from product to design, including Smart Home devices and home energy products.

With the design of its products being recognized as sophisticated, ergonomic, and user-friendly, the company has also received three notable accolades at the Red Dot Awards 2022.

The winning products include, once again, Wiser Smoke Alarm and SEMC-I Surge Protection Device and Putuo MT - Motor Mechanism - an electric motor that can remotely or manually operate molded case circuit breakers. Its new large slide design impresses with its user-friendliness and efficiency and allows users to easily switch between automatic and manual modes.

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot said:

“In this year of the competition, I have been particularly struck by the exceptional creativity shown by the award-winning products, including a range of solutions from Schneider Electric. It is really impressive and praiseworthy that there are still designs out there that can surprise us with their form and functionality. This makes it clear that design cannot be restricted or brought to a standstill by unfavorable circumstances. On the contrary: more and more new ideas and creations emerge, and futuristic techniques are developed. The fact that the quality of these products equals their level of innovation makes them well-deserved winners in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022.”
