AXKID ONE wins Red Dot Award

Axkid has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury have awarded Axkid ONE the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.

Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec on the laureates

“The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of the aesthetics and the functionality. It is not easy to win over our judges and prevail in such a strong field of competitors. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.

Axkid ONE – Where the highest safety standard and functionality meet ergonomic design.

Almost 4 years of design and engineering work has been required to succeed with the uniqueness of the Axkid ONE. Hundreds of crash tests have been completed in order to by far meet today’s safety regulations. Axkid ONE’s unique design allows true rear-facing all the way up to approx. 6-7 years compared to all similar products that only go up to approx. 4 years of age.

“Different crash test institutes, before testing the Axkid ONE commented, that this car seat has the possibility to change the whole car seat industry if it passes the test.”

Daniel Lundgren, Safety & Compliance Manager Axkid

Inspired by aircraft engineering, Axkid One’s protective aluminium frame maintains the structure of the car seat while the high strength steel bars withstand and direct the forces of the impact away from the child’s body in the event of an accident. Axkid ONE is the only car seat in the world with ISOFIX and the height limit of 125cm to pass the extremely tough crash test, the Plus Test.

“When we got the certification and passed the Plus Test we knew that we had done something unique.”

Daniel Johansson, CEO Axkid

Axkid ONE also comes with a simple on-seat-installation guide, based on step-by-step signs and 6 different safety indicators, distinctive either by colour or by audible system to ensure a correct, easy, and smooth installation.

“We are used to complicated installations when it come to rear-facing car seats, but this seat is even easier to install than a forward- facing seat.”

Daniel Lundgren, Safety & Compliance Manager Axkid

Evaluation platform for good design

The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates as far back as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year. Almost 50 judges were once again true to their motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.

We at Axkid are very proud and honoured that Axkid ONE once again is being acknowledge for it’s unique design and it’s boundary pushing difference that it has done for the car seat industry.
