The colourful range of Inissia capsule coffee machines can claim one more hue: the internationally coveted Red Dot design award for product design.

The award recognises quality high-tech, everyday products and is one of the world’s largest, with thousands of entries from 53 countries. A jury of 40 international design experts took into account functionality, innovation, quality and ecological compatibility when making their decision.

Unveiled in Feburary, the new lightweight machine is targeting 25-to-35 year olds with a more compact design and RRP of $249 with advanced Nespresso technology.  It comes in four permanent colours: black, white, ruby red and vanilla cream and two limited edition colours: summer sun and blue sky. These machines are available from Nespresso’s machine partners, De’Longhi and Breville.

Breville also picked up four gongs at the Red Dot Awards for the Quick Touch microwave; the Lift and Look Pro toaster; the Smart Waffle; and the Oracle automatic manual coffee machine.

Although winners of the Red Dot Design Awards have been notified of their success, the organisers do no go public with all winners until after the official ceremony on 7 July 2014. So, if your company has won an award, please get in touch so we can share this news with the industry.
