A jury of 50 international design experts awards the 2N® IP Style the prize
The award follows the presentation of the CE Pro BEST Award to the 2N® IP Style at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis
The 2N® IP Style, the flagship of 2N Telekomunikace for high-quality residential projects and office buildings, has won the Red Dot Design Award, one of the most prestigious awards for product design. The decision was made by a jury of 50 design experts from all over the world, who evaluated each product individually.
The 2N® IP Style has state-of-the-art features in the form of a Full HD camera with a wide dynamic range (WDR) and the revolutionary WaveKey technology for mobile access, which is further enhanced by the AXIS ARTPEC-7 processor.
These are the fruits of 2N’s decision to invest 14 percent of sales in research and development and to integrate design into the product development process from the very beginning
The minimalist design of the 2N® IP Style is based on two main elements: firstly, on the horizontal bar at the top, which houses the “invisible” speakers and the best camera on the intercom market, and secondly, on the thin, 480 cm2 glass touchscreen below. The touch screen is unprecedented in the market of intercoms both for its size and for the complete absence of buttons. The glass is also IP65 and IK08 certified and has been tested to withstand heavy rain, a dusty environment or vandalism.
This is the second significant award for 2N® IP Style, after the intercom was awarded the CE Pro BEST (Best Electronics Systems Technologies) Award at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis. The award follows the Red Dot Design Award for two previous 2N products, the 2N® Helios IP Verso intercom and the 2N® Indoor Touch intercom .
2N’s focus on design starts at the very beginning of the product development process. The company invests 14 percent of its turnover in research and development – a significantly higher value than many of the largest technology companies worldwide – and focuses on the combination of design and functionality at every stage.
Thorsten Uebe, Country Manager Germany from 2N says: “The Red Dot Awards are the Oscars of the design world, so this is a great moment for 2N. We are particularly proud of this award because it reflects much more than just the aesthetics of the 2N® IP Style. It’s about combining high-quality functionality and beautiful design in a way that enhances the status of any building in which the intercom is installed. In our industry, this is the true meaning of innovation.”
