The DBH Group’s investment, Flying Objects Design Studio earned the international Red Dot Awards, which is also known as the Oscar of Design. They won the prestigious award with designing a hand hygiene control device of Hand-in-Scan.
The cooperation between the startup and design team is forward-thinking and prestigious, because the philosophy behind the concept is that the innovation and design has to develop in parallel, and this idea is also the key principle of Flying Objects. This concept means, that the engineers and designers continuously communicate with each other, and develop the product based on this teamwork. The development affected on the design, but sometimes the design defined the functionality.
As the representatives of Flying Objects emphasized, the design is never for just only itself, every detail has an important function. According to Mr. Húnfalvi and Mr. Laufer the task was very appealing, because a device like Hand-in-Scan was never made before; therefore they could design it without any preconception. As a result of this work they got the Red Dot Concept Award at 25th September, because at the start, the Hand-in-Scan was not yet in production.
