Brighter’s diabetes solution Actiste wins the Red Dot Award for good design and quality.
Brighter's unique diabetes solution Actiste, introduced to the market in December 2017, has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award, in the Product Design category. Actiste was developed in collaboration with the company's design and innovation partner Veryday.
– We are very excited that Actiste received this award, which confirms that we have not only created a stylish but also a user-friendly product of high quality, says Truls Sjöstedt, Brighter's CEO and founder. Veryday, together with our internal development team, has made an amazing job creating a product we can be incredibly proud of.
– The entire Veryday design team congratulates Brighter and sends their best regards, says Marcus Heneen, Associate Design Director at Veryday. We realized early that Brighter was a fast-paced company that required an extremely agile and compressed process from us. Challenging, exciting and educational. We are very pleased to see that our joint efforts now are rewarded with this prestigious award.
In July 2018 a ceremony will be held in Essen, Germany, for the winners. For a subsequent four-week period, Actiste, together with other innovations, will be exhibited in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen as part of the exhibition "Design on Stage - Winners Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018".
– I want to congratulate the award winners sincerely on their wonderful success in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018. Success in the competition is proof of the good design quality of the products and once again shows that companies are on the right path. When I speak about good design, I am referring to more than just an attractive product. All of the products are characterised by outstanding functionality. This demonstrates that the designers have understood their clients and their needs, says Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award.
