Have you heard the good news? On the 29th June, the Red Dot Award Gala brought the global design scene together in Essen. Hundreds celebrated the best and most beautiful from a year of design. We are so pleased to announce that the Oekaki Renaissance was a part of it. That’s right, the Oekaki Renaissance has been awarded a prestigious Red Dot Award for Design 2015!
We’re always very proud of all our sewing machines, both their design and function: but we’re thrilled that the Renaissance has received such a high honour. A lot of work went into creating the elegant, contemporary feel of our newest addition. It seems that all that effort was successful!
Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, the Red Dot Award is an international design prize that signifies exemplary product design – it receives thousands of submissions each year. From those chosen this year, our Renaissance will certainly be in some excellent company! We’re very flattered by the judging panel’s comments on our red, green and black beauties:
“An unusually colourful design and the use of flowing lines turn this sewing machine into a show-stopper”
While we’re thrilled at the recognition for our newest machine, what’s even more important to us is the enthusiasm and creativity it’s brought to our Oekaki World users. We love how excited you are about the pieces you sew. We love the bonds you all form with your machines. We even love the spirited debates about which colour is the best! We hope the Renaissance continues to inspire and delight you, and bring the passion for truly free form sewing to the UK and beyond.
