Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2020

Fiskars Design Team led by Petteri Masalin

This year’s “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year” title of honour goes to the Fiskars Design Team led by Petteri Masalin. Making the everyday extraordinary – with this goal in mind, the Creative Design Lead and his crew create premium-quality products for garden, cooking and crafting enthusiasts.

Established in 1649 as an ironworks in a small Finnish village of the same name, Fiskars has grown to become a leading global supplier of consumer products. With groundbreaking innovations, a natural approach, unparalleled functionality, ergonomics and the right balance between complexity and simplicity, the designers won over the jury for the Red Dot Award: Product Design a number of times.

“It’s really difficult to design this simplicity, because on the one hand you have to understand what you are designing and on the other hand you have to know when to stop, so that the new product isn’t overloaded with details.”
