Fourteen of LG Electronics' 2012 products were recognized by the red dot design awards, including a bottom freezer refrigerator for the EU market and the LG Styler clothing steamer. A panel of 30 independent judges considered over 4,500 products from 1,800 manufacturers and designers in nearly 60 countries. In all, LG took 12 red dot design awards as well as two honorable mentions.
LG also recently won 14 iF (International Forum) design awards.
LG's bottom freezer, model GB5240AVAZ, won a red dot award. The fridge, sold in Europe, has a Slim Water Dispenser and incorporates Zero Clearance design, so the appliance doors can be opened up to 90 degrees without bumping into the wall. The model is also highly energy efficient with a rating of A++, largely due to its linear compressor technology.
The LG Styler clothing management cabinet, also a red dot design award-winner, has a modern finish designed to complement the interior decor of a bedroom, walk-in closet, or laundry room. Controls are displayed on a front touch panel, illuminated by soft, gentle lighting. The appliance uses steam cycles to reduce everyday wrinkles and unpleasant odors. It also keeps clothes neat and fresh, using a selection of scents that can be infused into the stored clothing items.
