Bold visions for a better future

“Designers and creative minds show us immense relevance of visions needed for progressive social development. Bold ideas and visions that have been used to design new products have changed our lives. And to make life better every day, this is the challenge of good design.” reiterates Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, CEO and founder of Red Dot Design Award, when Yamaha Motor’s self balancing gesture controlled motorcycle, MOTOROiD, took home the Red Dot: Luminary for 2018.
