Cleansui CSP901 wins Red Dot for outstanding design quality


The Red Dot Jury has made its decision: Cleansui CSP901 emerged victorious from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 and won a Red Dot for its good design quality. This means that Cleansui is one of the winners in the world’s most renowned design competition.

This is the third Red Dot Award for the company after winning the Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2019 with its brand “Cleansui”, and the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018 with Cleansui Shigaraki JP100-C.

Cleansui CSP901 is a faucet-mounted water filter launched in February 2020. Designed by product designer Ms Fumie Shibata, Cleansui CSP901 has a simple and fresh form to fit in kitchens while giving a high priority to dedicated usability such as the easy-to-remove water filter and the shower outlet which splashes less water. A large size of liquid-crystal display (LCD) is installed to improve visibility. Pressing a button under the display allows users to switch between “liter” volume, to indicate remaining pure water, and “cc” volume, which is convenient for cooking.

I wish to congratulate them most sincerely on their success,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.

Detailed evaluation of the products entered

The Red Dot Award: Product Design offers designers and manufacturers from all over the world a platform for assessing their products. In 2020, designers and companies from 60 countries entered more than 6,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for around 65 years in order to select the year’s best designs. The adjudication process lasts several days and is based on two essential criteria: The jurors test all of the entries in order to assess not just the aesthetic but also the materials selected, the level of craftsmanship, the surface structure, ergonomics and functionality. After intensive discussions, they make a decision on the design quality of the products. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, only the best designs receive an award.
