Daikin Emura has won the prestigious 2014 red dot award for product design in the air conditioning category.
The annual red dot awards are judged by an international jury of design experts, which assesses products according to a number of criteria, including aesthetics, innovation, functionality and their environmental credentials, plus quality, ergonomics and durability. This year's awards were hotly contested by 4,815 products, entered by 1,816 designers, manufacturers and architects from 53 countries.
Patrick Crombez, senior manager at Daikin Europe, said: 'This award demonstrates just how well the new Daikin Emura blends elegant design with state-of-the-art technology. Its stylish silhouette, quality materials and exceptional finish are matched by equally outstanding efficiency levels.'
