Joan Wins Red Dot Award 2022

Every year, the Red Dot organization filters through hundreds of candidates for a state-of-the-art design with out-of-this-world innovation. In 2022, they found it in Joan for the third time!

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the biggest design competitions in the world. In three disciplines, participants submit products, communication projects and brands as well as prototypes and concepts. The distinction “Red Dot” is an internationally recognised seal of excellent design.

To pinpoint their winners, The Red Dot organization compares designs and products worldwide. The panel judges products from every angle including functionality, durability, practicality, and more.

Our team and co-founder Matej Zalar are both unbelievably proud:

‘’In a world full of complexities we believe in a different approach to design. Instead of blindly following the “more is better” trend, we stood our grounds and developed a solution with simplicity at its core. Our team dedicated thousands of hours to reducing the complexity of workplace solutions and offering an alternative that offers a better quality of work life. From day one we took time to understand the challenges faced by the hybrid workplace and our role in creating a better experience for everyone at the office.’’

So, what makes a design great?

A design becomes great when it’s not just an object, not just a tool, but is a solution. Joan offers a meeting room scheduler that integrates so seamlessly with your environment that the entire experience is better. Meetings run smoother and are easy to manage, making navigating hybrid workspaces a breeze.

For Joan 6 Pro, the display’s simplicity stood out. The art lies in the work of our designers and architects who transformed complex designs and concepts into a product that is truly simple. 

A simple design enhances usability, functionality, and overall quality of life.

In the words of Professor Dr. Peter Zec,

“In this year of the competition, I have been particularly struck by the exceptional creativity shown by the award-winning products. It is really impressive and praiseworthy that there are still designs out there that can surprise us with their form and functionality. This makes it clear that design cannot be restricted or brought to a standstill by unfavorable circumstances. On the contrary: more and more new ideas and creations emerge, and futuristic techniques are developed. The fact that the quality of these products equals their level of innovation makes them well-deserved winners in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022.“ 

Our customers have always valued the simplicity of their Joan products and now the world knows just how slick Joan 6 Pro can be. Red Dot slick.

Designed with sustainability in mind, Joan 6 Pro is made of recyclable and sustainable resources — glass and aluminum. The high-quality materials stand out, creating a premium feel and timeless look.

Longevity is key for providing a reliable product with minimal impact on the environment. Joan devices are built to last at least five years and have a failure rate of only 0.63% — the lowest in the industry.

Where our ingenuity truly shone is in our low-energy designs. Joan 6 Pro is a wireless display lasting up to six months on a single charge. In fact, the display lasts an entire year on the amount of energy to brew a single cup of coffee.

In retrospect, isn’t it amazing that the best qualities and most sought-after features are also sustainable? Joan’s low-energy design combined with the durable structure and quality materials makes it a classy choice for any work environment.

At the end of the day, Joan is honored to be recognized by our peers in the design world. We’re incredibly moved by what the award represents: quality, innovation, and an overall great design.

Still, the most rewarding part of what we do is our 8,000+ happy customers. Joan 6 Pro was developed from “the bottom up” in that we listened to our customers and then designed a next-generation room scheduler. We worked and reworked designs until they became truly simple — state-of-the-art devices refined to help any workplace flourish.
