DCA wins a Red dot concept award

Published on: 7th January 2016

DCA has won a prestigious 2015 Red Dot Concept Award for its concept consumer unit ‘Fuse’. Building on other recent Red Dot wins it now places DCA as 7th in the Red Dot Design Ranking for Design Studios, globally.

Fuse is a fresh approach to a design which has remained largely unchanged since its inception. Consumer units, or fuse boxes, are the focal point for electricity entering a building. They serve to distribute power and interrupt the supply if an electrical fault is detected. Fuse has been carefully designed for both the electrician and the home owner, irrespective of electrical knowledge. The smart display and accompanying app deliver a new level of resolution in active monitoring of energy consumption, as well as enabling improved identification and simpler rectification of system faults. The use of standard internal components ensures that the installation and configuration of Fuse complements industry standards.

Today, the Red Dot Award for design concept has grown to be the largest and most recognised professional design competition for design concept and prototypes worldwide.  As the industry benchmark, this competition becomes the foundation of the Red Dot Design Ranking, published by the Red Dot Institute.

Every year, Red Dot Design Ranking, highlighting the top 15 companies, design studios and design institutions of different regions is now the ultimate reference for design achievement and capability. In 2015, the Red Dot Award for design concept received 4,680 entries from 61 countries. These entries are submitted by 285 design institutions, 400 companies and design studios, 3,197 designers.
