The jury agreed: In recognition of her excellent Corporate Website on niessing.com, the Cologne based Bureau BLEEN will receive the sought-after red dot in "the red dot award: communication design", one of the largest and most internationally acclaimed design competitions. This testifies to the prize-winner’s very high level of design. 15 jury members, all of whom are design experts of international repute, assessed every single one of the total 6,468 entries in a process that lasted several days. Just 608 works were awarded a red dot. All of the award-winning works in 2011 will be on show in the special exhibition "Design on stage – winners red dot award: communication design 2011" in the Alte Münze Berlin.
Presenting jewelry online is a challenge. Niessing Manufactory’s Website has been engineered to meet it. Full-size resolution and minimal design brings the product to the fore and invites you to a visual tour. Simple forms, matte surfaces, a narrow range of colors, and contemporary technology give the Website the innovative and modern look for which Niessing is famous.
"Year after year, the jury is overwhelmed by the wealth and the variety of the works submitted. Although the majority of the entries meet high quality standards, only the best designs win a red dot design award," explains Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator and CEO of the red dot. "In 2011, the jury again used its expert knowledge to assess the creative achievements of design ‘veterans’ but also of new, up-and-coming designers, placing a great deal of emphasis on originality, emotional and design quality as well as conciseness". The result is deserved winners that stood out amongst thousands of entries from 40 countries thanks to their excellent design.
Award ceremony and exhibition
All of the winners will be celebrated at a stylish award ceremony on 7 October 2011 in the Konzerthaus in Berlin. Afterwards, the Designers’ Night will take place in the Alte Münze Berlin.

The exhibition will showcase all of the award-winning works from 7 to 16 October 2011.
The red dot design award
The red dot design award is the world’s largest design competition. The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen started honouring excellent design as far back as 1954, when it was called Industrieform e.V. The sought-after "red dot" has since become established as an internationally recognized seal of quality, and is now awarded in different disciplines. The winning works will be on show in the red dot design museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of contemporary design. www.red-dot.org
