Depro Profiles wins Red Dot Award


At the beginning of April, KOVR, the new design label from Depro Profiles, received a Red Dot Design Award. Price beast of service is HYDE. These are contemporary wall and ceiling panels with integrated LED lighting, which were developed in collaboration with top designer Danny Venlet and Designregio Kortrijk. With words such as innovative, convincing and contemporary, the jury praised the product that was first presented to the general public during Interieur 2016 in Kortrijk

KOVR is the new design label of the West Flemish company Depro Profiles. During Interieur 2016, Depro Profiles presented its very first brand product HYDE to the general public and at the beginning of this month the team had already won its first award, the Red Dot Design Award. HYDE stands for high-quality wall and ceiling panels with an integrated LED lighting system. HYDE convinced the Red Dot Design Award jury with its architectural design look, high-quality finish and contemporary materials.

HYDE was born last year from the unique 5X5 concept of Designregio Kortrijk. Thanks to this concept, companies are given the opportunity to collaborate with designers for a year. KOVR resolutely opted for a collab with top designer Danny Venlet. “Working with an external designer such as Danny Venlet was an enriching experience. We chose Venlet because of his work as a product designer for firms such as Bulo, Extremis and Dark, along with his specific experience in architecture and interior projects. He always goes beyond what is standard without designing for a niche market. That is also our product vision. A real match! The fact that HYDE can now receive a Red Dot Award is the icing on the cake, "said Depro Profiles Innovation Manager Lode Espriet.

The Red Dot Design Awards have been presented annually by the German Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen since 1955 and have become one of the most respected design awards in the world. The award is an internationally recognized quality label and is presented by a jury of 40 experts from all over the world. Winners receive a certificate and appear in the Red Dot yearbook.
