The new connectivity range for workplaces Simon400 has won the RED DOT and the IF DESIGN award (two of the most prestigious design awards in the world); in the product category.

This award is a recognition of the work done by all the departments that have been involved in the Simon 400 project, in which the series has been given a minimalist and modern aesthetic, minimizing unnecessary spaces and eliminating the less aesthetics details, (screws, vertical lines between functions or even the frame itself); in a bid to incorporate the design into the solutions of electrical and multimedia connectivity of the workplaces whilst maximizing the free space in the desks.

This is one more commercial argument to be used in situations in which a commercial building-offices project involves an architecture studio or an interiorist design studio and especially in those situations where design takes an special importance.

Simon has already been awarded in previous editions of RED DOT and iF awards. Specifically, the Simon24 series with an IF Award, as well as the Sense family of interfaces with an IF GOLD AWARD and also the S100 with a RED DOT have been previously awarded, (those awards have been also given to some Fluvia products).

Barcelona 21 July, 2016 – SIMON, a leading manufacturer of interfaces and electrical equipment, as well as a creator of technology and decoration solutions for home and business environments, has been awarded the Spanish National Design Award 2016 for the ‘Companies’ category by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the State Secretariat for Research Development and Innovation.

The Spanish National Design Awards 2016 recognize companies and individuals with an outstanding trajectory in the field of design. Specifically, the jury awarded SIMON for its large international impact, long business tradition and constant, strategic commitment to innovation. In addition, the award highlights SIMON’s capacity for including design in everyday products.

“This award recognizes SIMON’s effort and work in committing to innovative, functional, good-looking, timeless and global products and solutions. Our priority is not to make design products but rather, products that are well designed,” commented SIMON’s deeply moved Design Director, Salvi Plaja. “For us, investing in each project’s design while providing comfortable, secure and sustainable solutions for any environment is a challenge,” he adds.

According to Luis Lopezbarrena, SIMON’s General Manager, “We’re very proud to add this award to our centennial celebration. Our slogan, Simon Light Up Emotions, allows users to create atmospheres with our products that awaken all kinds of emotions through design,” he confirms. “Our team’s effort in combining appearance and functionality has been recognized by other prestigious design awards, both in Spain and abroad, such as the Red Dot Awards, Plus X Awards, the Delta Awards, the Catalonia Ecodesign Awards 2015 and the IF Design Awards, including an IF Gold Award for our Sense range.”
