The Compact-Line awarded for high design quality.

KKT chillers convinced the 40-strong expert panel of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014 with the high design quality of its Compact Line. In the current competition, international experts discussed and assessed 4,815 submissions from 53 nations. But only designs that inspire with quality and innovation are awarded by the jury. The innovative chiller line from KKT chillers was victorious and received the coveted Red Dot quality seal as a deserved reward.

On July 7, 2014, the grand finale of the internationally renowned product competition will be celebrated in Essen: the awarding of the acclaimed Red Dot as part of the traditional Red Dot Gala and subsequent Designers’ Night. On this evening, around 1,200 guests from all over the world come to Essen to experience the award ceremony. In addition, the winning exhibition will be opened during the party in the Red Dot Design Museum, which will present the excellent cBoxX to a broad audience for four weeks before being included in the permanent exhibition of the house.

The Compact Line – Efficient. Compact. Innovative.

The Compact Line is a new generation of chiller technology in terms of efficiency, compactness and innovation. Packed in a modern industrial design with flowing and clean lines, the power package shows its efficiency directly and gives an idea of ??the variety of innovations in the latest and cool chiller line. Innovative and highly efficient components are arranged on the smallest possible footprint. As a result, the Compact-Line integrates almost seamlessly into almost every vacant lot in the machine or equipment park. The interaction of these components not only enables maximum performance in a minimum of space, but also significantly reduces operating costs. In addition, the control panel convinces every user with its user-friendly interface and enables remote maintenance and updates via web and app as well as USB. The communication interfaces between application and chiller leave almost nothing to be desired.

Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot, on the decision-making process in the Red Dot Award: “The 40 experts dealt with the submissions with great seriousness and high standards. Due to their origin, the cultural characteristics of the designs from 53 countries were evaluated. Only the best products will be awarded by the jury. This is particularly evident in the Red Dot Awards’ award rate, which is much lower than other international design competitions. The winners can be proud of their achievements – they have emerged from the crowd with their submissions and could stand before the critical eyes of the experts. This success will be felt at the Red Dot Gala when the award winners receive the recognition of the international design scene. “
