OhMiBod’s Lovelife Vibrators Winner of the Prestigious Red Dot Award
06.06.2014 | Portsmouth, New Hampshire – OhMiBod, a leading innovator of sexual health products, took home the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014 for Lovelife, its new line of personal massagers. Red Dot is the world’s most prestigious design competition, with more than 4,800 entries from 53 countries vying for this year’s honors. A 40-member expert panel that included famed designer Jimmy Choo and Hideshi Hamaguchi, inventor of the USB drive, evaluated each submission for quality and innovative strength.
The OhMiBod team will pick up its award on July 7th at the Red Dot Gala and Designers’ Night, held at Aalto-Theater in Essen, Germany. Attended by roughly 1,200 guests, the ceremony will feature the opening of the winners’ exhibition – a four-week, public showcase for award-winning products. The Lovelife collection will then enter permanent exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany. As a Red Dot winner, the Lovelife collection will now carry the coveted, internationally recognized Red Dot quality seal.
“My goal with the Lovelife design was to create massagers that not only reflected the key components to our founders’ relationship, but were also inherently approachable and intimate,” said Mathieu Pung, OhMiBod’s inhouse designer. “By focusing on every last detail – from the winking button layout to the ergonomics to the distinctive product packaging – we ensured that singles and couples could welcome Lovelife products into the bedroom as intimate friends instead of a pieces of technology.”
“The Red Dot award is one of the most sought-after quality marks for excellent design,” added Suki Dunham, OhMiBod’s founder. “While proud to be in such exclusive company, we’re also thrilled that Lovelife’s permanent museum exhibit will ensure continued education about self pleasure and pleasure products for years to come.”
