Miele wins Red Dot Design Awards 2015

Miele wins Red Dot Design Awards 2015
Simplicity of operation meets clear design
G├╝tersloh, May 6, 2015. –

Miele was recently presented the coveted Red Dot Design Award for design excellence for their  RX1 Scout Robotic Vacuum.

Intelligent navigation, good cleaning results and quality workmanship were the convincing virtues of the Scout RX 1 Robotic Vacuum. The Triple Cleaning System, with two side brushes, turbo brush roller and an efficient fan, guarantees high-level cleaning performance. Thanks to its reduced height, the Scout maneuvers below pieces of furniture with admirable ease.
The Red Dot Design Award is presented for design excellence and has gone since 1955 to products for their outstanding design. In 2015, companies and designers from 56 countries submitted around 5000 products in 31 categories. The official award ceremony will take place in the Aalto Theatre in Essen on June 29, 2015.
