Italian Designs By Manfrotto Win the 2012 Red Dot Design Awards

27/03/2012 — 

Manfrotto has won two prizes at the 2012 edition of one of the world most prestigious design competitions: the Red Dot Design Awards.

The two Manfrotto winning products have been chosen by the international jury among a total of 4,515 projects, submitted by designers and companies from 58 countries.

According to the jury’s advice, both Manfrotto products stood out for their unique and innovative design, wisely combined with technology and using ease. More into details:

  • The SYMPLA Rig System, an innovative, beautiful modular solution for HDSLR’s and camcorders. Sympla, which will be presented for the first time at the forthcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas, has already raised great excitement within the industry: thanks to easier, safer and more comfortable usage, it just makes videographer’s life simpler.

  • The 502HD System, an innovative telescoping video kit incorporating the MVH502A fluid head and the MVT502AM tripod. The system, featuring lightweight, compactness and unexpected sturdiness, already represents a game-change in design and technology for all professional videographers.

Manfrotto products being recognized by such a prestigious international top class jury confirms, once again, the value of Italian quality design, positioning Manfrotto among the world's most valuable companies in innovation, research and development.

The awards schedule takes place on 2 July 2012, at the Aalto-Theater in Essen, Germany. The event is expected to be attended by more than 1,000 international guests from the worlds of design, industry, politics and media.
