All the 620 nominated products were exhibited during the Xiamen International Design Week — Red Dot in China from Nov 3 to 6.
Among the golden award winners of this year’s competition were:
Clover Garden Light
The light looks like a blooming flower. It is powered either by a solar panel or through a cable. The touch button on the back of the solar panel can be used to adjust brightness.
The light is suitable for outdoor parties and camping, as it can be directly stuck into the ground.
Tapole Series T
This spectacle frame does not have screws, adhesive or welding, because it uses a technology that combines nylon and a titanium alloy. The titanium alloy sheet can form into a unique hinged structure after laser cutting and curving. A pair of adjustable pads on the bridge provide comfort and prevent it from falling off.
MI P4 PRO In-ear Headphone
Its metal-sound chamber with ergonomic curves has been carefully conceptualized for comfort.
The headphone’s “double vibrating diaphragm + balanced armature drivers” structure offers richer treble and deeper bass sound.
This is an intelligent device to measure air quality at home. It can monitor levels of PM2.5, formaldehyde concentration, temperature and air humidity, and update the data to an app on your phone through Wi-Fi. The device has a high-accuracy PM2.5 laser sensor and a large-capacity battery.
The electric foldable bicycle only weighs 15.5 kilograms and can be folded easily. The frame is made from aluminum alloy using a 3-D forging technique, while its front fork and hub is made of a recyclable magnesium alloy.
