The Red Dot Design Award is awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany. The aim of the prize is to honour outstanding design quality and trendsetters. This year, 3,203 products from 51 countries were considered for the award.
More than 20 innovations have been integrated in this first full-LED front combination lamp, from which all lighting functions are realised with LEDs —low and high beams, turn signals, daytime running lights and position lights.
AL note that LEDs open up new possibilities for the designers, allowing for unusual contours. 24 closely-spaced white Advanced Power Top LEDs are used to provide a homogenous appearance. The light band of the DRL in combination with the LED turn signal frames the headlamp and forms a three-dimensional illuminated sculpture.
